If you read the various tech forums around, you will find many people like the Relive package. Once you get used to Wattman, it's very useful for OC'ing.

No, Raptr was 3rd party. Once the contract was up with them, they ditched Raptr and made ReLive.

"A few months back, AMD finally axed its partnership with Raptr for the cumbersome Gaming Evolved suite."

Source: http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/2710-amd-relive-vs-nvidia-shadowplay-benchmarks

"I spoke to an AMD rep at the release of the first Crimson software about Raptr and he assured me that as soon as the contract was up Raptr would be ditched."

Source: https://www.pcgamesn.com/amd/amd-radeon-crimson-relive

So it seems like all those complaints about Raptr many of us submitted did some good. While ReLive is not perfect, it's way better than Raptr was, and keep in mind ShadowPlay also had some growing pains at launch.

How was ReLive 17.1.1 so much better than anything after it in BF1 ? Look at the graph? Wow!
I'd call that graph bullshit until it's proven triple times. =) Simply makes no sense.

ReLive is smooth as butter. Must be a problem with your setup.
