AMD apporte une attention toute particulière à ses pilotes graphique. Après l’introduction des Crimson Edition en 2015, une version majeure est annoncée, les Radeon Software Crimson Relive. Le programme est chargé avec de nombreuses promesses.

Radeon Software Crimson Relive

AMD vient de faire évoluer ses pilotes graphiques avec l’annonce d’une version importante. les Radeon Software Crimson Relive. Cette nouvelle itération, portant la numérotation 16.12, promet de nouvelles fonctionnalités et surtout une hausse des performances. Elle touche en particulier la Radeon RX 480  avec des augmentations pouvant atteindre les 8%.

Crimson Relive, performance, enregistrement video

Sur la question des fonctionnalités, l’importante concerne l’enregistrement vidéo du bureau et en jeu ainsi que le streaming.

Tout ceci est rendu facilement accessible avec une application Relive directement intégrée dans l’interface de gestion des pilotes. Le service est compatible avec les grands noms du domaine citons par exemple Twitch et YouTube. Son usage est noté comme peu gourmand avec des conséquences minimales sur les performances, moins de 4%.

A cela s’ajoute d’outres outils comme le Radeon Loom pour la création de captures à 360°, le  Depth of Field pour le réglage de la profondeur de champ avec des jeux DX12, le Tress FX 4.0 ou encore les fonctions MultiView Rendering et MultiRes Rendering pour l’optimisation du rendu avec l’usage d’un casque de réalité virtuelle.

AMD annonce avoir revisité le moteur d’installation avec désormais un installeur optimisé permettant enfin une réinstallation dite « propre ».

Crimson Relive, consommation, bruit et moteur d’installation

La gestion de la gourmandise énergétique profite désormais du Radeon Chill. Cet outil analyse le rendu et les mouvements afin de gérer en temps réel le nombre d’images à calculer et donc de diminuer si possible la consommation.

Il faudra par contre du temps pour profiter de cette technologie. Pour l’heure, elle ne fonctionne qu’avec certains titres. Les premiers retours sont assez positifs aussi bien sur la question de la consommation que de la baisse de température et des besoins en refroidissement.

Enfin conscience que le gaming incarne une communauté de passionnés, l’interface propose les  “rétroactions des utilisateurs”. Un système de vote permettra de prioriser le développement de nouvelles fonctionnalités.
