AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition WHQL Desktop- und Notebook-Grafiktreiber

AMD hat die ers­te Ver­si­on des neu­en Gra­fik­trei­bers Rade­on Soft­ware Crim­son Edi­ti­on ver­öf­fent­licht, die eine Viel­zahl neu­er sowie ver­bes­ser­ter Fea­tures beinhal­tet. Detail­lier­te Infor­ma­tio­nen hier­zu kön­nen der zuge­hö­ri­gen News ent­nom­men wer­den. Besit­zer älte­rer Gra­fik­kar­ten soll­ten beach­ten, dass VLIW-basier­te Rade­ons nicht mehr unter­stützt wer­den – sel­bi­ges gilt für ent­spre­chen­de APUs mit VLIW-Gra­fik­kern. Für jene Model­le hat AMD einen sepa­ra­ten Beta­trei­ber bereit­ge­stellt. Das Trei­ber-Team will sich künf­tig voll­stän­dig auf die GCN-Archi­tek­tur kon­zen­trie­ren.

Eine voll­stän­di­ge Lis­te der vom Trei­ber unter­stütz­ten Hard­ware sowie sämt­li­cher beho­be­ner und bekann­ter Pro­ble­me kann den offi­zi­el­len Release Notes ent­nom­men wer­den. Soll­tet Ihr von Pro­ble­men betrof­fen sein, die dar­in nicht auf­ge­führt wer­den, dann könnt Ihr das offi­zi­el­le Cata­lyst Crew Feed­back Form ver­wen­den, um das Trei­ber-Team dar­auf auf­merk­sam zu machen. Eine Hil­fe­stel­lung für das For­mu­lar könnt Ihr hier fin­den.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.11 Info
AMD Rade­on Soft­ware Crim­son Edi­ti­on WHQL — CCC-Soft­warein­for­ma­ti­on

Die Trei­ber ste­hen für Win­dows 10, 8.1 und 7 zum Down­load bereit. Win­dows 8 wur­de letzt­mals mit dem Cata­lyst 14.4 WHQL offi­zi­ell unter­stützt. Vis­ta-Nut­zer kön­nen den Win­dows-7-Trei­ber eben­falls instal­lie­ren, aller­dings hat uns AMD zu ver­ste­hen gege­ben, dass Micro­softs unge­lieb­ter Spross in der Qua­li­täts­si­che­rung und Ent­wick­lung nur noch eine unter­ge­ord­ne­te Rol­le spielt.

Was ist neu?

High­lights of AMD Rade­on Soft­ware Crim­son Edi­ti­on

Rade­on Soft­ware Crim­son Edi­ti­on is AMD’s revo­lu­tio­na­ry new gra­phics soft­ware that deli­vers rede­si­gned func­tio­n­a­li­ty, super­char­ged gra­phics per­for­mance, remar­kab­le new fea­tures, and inno­va­ti­on that rede­fi­nes the over­all user expe­ri­ence.

Rade­on Set­tings:

Rade­on Set­tings is the new, stream­li­ned user inter­face, engi­nee­red to bring out the best of AMD gra­phics hard­ware. User-fri­end­ly and fea­ture-rich, Rade­on Set­tings is light­ning fast and starts upto 10x times faster1 than the pre­vious AMD Cata­lyst™ Con­trol Cen­ter. Rade­on Set­tings pro­vi­des a brand new game mana­ger, impro­ved AMD Over­dri­ve opti­ons per game and new video, dis­play and Eye­fi­ni­ty tabs.

New Install UI:

The dri­ver instal­ler now pro­vi­des a brand new, stream­li­ned user expe­ri­ence with a redu­ced num­ber of clicks requi­red, pro­vi­ding bet­ter usa­bi­li­ty and an easy to install user expe­ri­ence.

Liquid VR:

The AMD Rade­on Soft­ware Crim­son edi­ti­on is the first publicly avail­ab­le dri­ver that enab­les all Liquid­VR fea­tures, which are cur­r­ent­ly being vali­da­ted and tested by VR head­set manu­fac­tu­rers and eco­sys­tem part­ners.

Asyn­chro­nous Shaders:

A fea­ture that has been exten­si­ve­ly used by game con­so­le deve­lo­pers is now avail­ab­le to PC Gamers. Asy­chro­nous Shaders break com­plex seri­al workloads into smal­ler par­al­lel tasks, ther­e­by allo­wing idle GPU resour­ces to be used more effi­ci­ent­ly and par­al­lel workloads allow tas­kes to be com­ple­ted much fas­ter.

Shader Cache:

The shader cache fea­ture allows com­plex shaders to be cached, ther­e­by resul­ting in redu­ced game load times, lower CPU usa­ge and redu­ced stut­te­ring and laten­cy during gameplay2.

Opti­mi­zed Flip Queue Size:

The opti­mi­zed Flip Queue Size pro­vi­des users with the very latest key­board and mou­se posi­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on during game­play to redu­ce input laten­cy on Direc­tX 9 , Direc­tX 10 and Direc­tX 11 app­li­ca­ti­ons. This fea­ture is a dri­ver opti­mi­za­ti­on, the­re­fo­re it is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly enab­led and requi­res no user con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on or set­up.

Free­sync Enhan­ce­ments:

  • Minimum/Maximum dis­play rate is now listed in Rade­on Set­tings
  • Low frame­ra­te com­pen­sa­ti­on to redu­ce or eli­mi­na­te jud­der when app­li­ca­ti­on FPS falls below the mini­mum refresh rate of an AMD Free­sync enab­led dis­play
  • New sup­port for AMD Free­sync with AMD Cross­fire in Direc­tX 9 tit­les

Custom Reso­lu­ti­on Sup­port:

This fea­ture pro­vi­des users more con­trol over dis­play capa­bi­li­ties allo­wing the user to crea­te custom dis­play pro­files to attempt to dri­ve their dis­play with cho­sen reso­lu­ti­on, timings, refresh rates and pixel clocks.

Frame Pacing Enhan­ce­ments:

Frame pacing sup­port is now exten­ded to Direc­tX 9 tit­les.

Frame Rate Tar­get Con­trol Enhan­ce­ments:

FRTC enhan­ce­ments inclu­de: power saving capa­bil­ty, sup­port for Direc­tX 9 tit­les and an exten­ded ran­ge for tar­get con­trol (30 — 200 FPS).

Updated Video Fea­ture sup­port for ‘Car­ri­zo’ pro­duc­ts:

  • Fluid­Mo­ti­on for smoot­hing play­back of 24/30 FPS video using Cyber­link Power­DVD 15 for Blu-Ray play­back
  • Impro­ved edge enhan­ce­ment for shar­per images
  • Impro­ved de-interlacing for inter­la­ced con­tent

Power Opti­mi­za­ti­on:

Impro­ved power opti­mi­za­ti­ons for video, gaming and FRTC enab­led gaming envi­ron­ments (AMD Rade­on R7 360, AMD Rade­on R9 380, AMD Rade­on R9 390 series and AMD Rade­on Fury series)..

Direc­tio­n­al Sca­ling:

Enhan­ced image qua­li­ty for 1080p media con­tent sca­led to 4K reso­lu­ti­on using adap­ti­ve direc­tio­n­al fil­te­ring tech­no­lo­gy (AMD Rade­on Fury pro­duc­ts).

Dyna­mic Con­trast Update:

Quala­ti­ve chan­ges are now con­tent adap­ti­ve and pro­vi­des video enthu­si­asts with impro­ved video qua­li­ty and con­trast set­tings (AMD Rade­on R8 285, AMD Rade­on R9 380 and AMD Rade­on Fury pro­duc­ts).

Dis­play­Port to HDMI 2.0 sup­port:

Pro­vi­des full sup­port for Dis­play­Port to HDMI 2.0 con­nec­tions via cer­ti­fied don­gles.
