AMD announces Radeon Catalyst Software and sends retire




AMD replaced before the end of 2015 through its Catalyst driver ‘Radeon Software. Besides a new name, the software has been given a new look, with new features. The new Radeon Software would also work faster than Catalyst.

The Radeon Software will inform the subtitle Crimson Edition, which will apply to all versions of the driver that open in 2015 and 2016. The version number is retained consisting of the year and month of the driver release.

The most striking innovation in Radeon Software is the integration of installed games, as AMD has been doing for some time with Raptr, and which used competitor Nvidia GeForce Experience. Per game a profile can be selected, with associated graphics settings and possibly overclocking settings for the GPU. Most of the other institutions that emerge from the screenshots, were also present in the Catalyst Control Panel.

AMD claims that the new software is ten times as fast as the old. The loading of the control panel of the Radeon Software would only last 0.6 seconds, compared to Catalyst lasted eight seconds. How big is the difference in practice remains to be seen; AMD did the test on an unrepresentative HP Pavilion DM1 laptop, which came in 2011 on the market and features an AMD E-350 APU.

Who itself with the Radeon Software wants to work will have to wait, AMD has indicated the driver before the end of the year release.
