AMD Partners with Raptr to Launch Rival App to GeForce Experience

AMD partnered with PC gaming social network and clan-base service Raptr to launch its very own PC game settings optimization app that rivals NVIDIA's GeForce Experience. Named Gaming Evolved, the app takes a slightly different approach to finding the right settings for games, than GeForce Experience. While NVIDIA has dedicated teams of people running games through countless combinations of hardware to find the optimal settings for a given hardware configuration, Gaming Evolved relies on Raptr's 16-million strong community. Raptr clients relay anonymous game settings and hardware configuration data to Raptr. The best settings for given hardware configurations are pulled out of that data, through collaborative filtering. In addition to one-click optimization of game settings (a la GeForce Experience), the app gives you three of its own presets unique to your hardware - "best quality," "best performance," and "balanced." Raptr released the first public beta of the app, which can be downloaded from the link below.

I find it amusing how the app suggests to turn off all detail settings in LoL. What PC did they run it on, some gray box from the 90ies?

Ah, Might want to read it again.

They rely on 16m community members.

Its still in beta and the data might not be all there or the upside. Your hardware is better then anyone elses in the pool of data that plays LoL.

Worked fine on my AMD GPU system. Although I just installed it to check it out and see what it did on a handful of games.

I much rather do it manually so this will suffer the same faith as GFE on my Nvidia systems. Maybe the screen-grab and video features will come handy FRAPS alternative or maybe just leave it on to earn points.

I am aware of that. I just found it funny since LoL probably is one of, if not THE, current games with the absolutely lowest hardware requirements :)

They better hope there's a very wide and varied amount of hardware configs in that community, because I've been nothing but impressed with how well the GFE software has predicted the settings based on my hardware.

AMD also said during the their stream that it will also graph out fps during game play for what ever reason either for showing where fps or settings tuneing. However that is pretty pointless since fps numbers are taken from exit of game engine and that don't mean anything to user experience.

Raptr showed my FPS is 1.86 in DOTA 2 and Prompting me to lower the settings of the game.

I have HD7850 2GB which is more than sufficient to play DOTA 2 at highest settings @1080p.

Agreed. 8x AA, 16x AF, in-game settings maxed.
Can't max it, won't play it.:rockout:
And yeah, don't think I'll even bother with this. The idea is good, but backing it with community-made profiles doesn't seem like it'll work out too well. Also, if you can't figure out the settings in CCC, you probably won't even know what half the settings this program's changing are. Catalyst for me.

Funny, just had a machine come in this week loaded with malware and Malwarebytes picked up Raptor Desktop as malware...

I just about rolled my eyes at this until I saw the Steam integration, but this is something Steam should be offering. AMD should be backing Steam on this.

It isn't about having; it is about offering a relevant service...

I think it should give more than one option to get the most out of a game and not everyone thinks thee same.

Like the picture i am about to post and i liked it how i had it and actually thought i had 2AA on but cannot remember and this says i did not but anyways..

I opted for better textures over x4 AA and post FX.
