Every year, AMD regales its users with a new major version of their driver suite, with added features and, usually, increased performance. In 2015, AMD introduced the Radeon Crimson driver release, which included a hefty performance package for some major titles, the new Radeon Settings design interface, and increased stability over the previous mega-release, Catalyst Omega. Last year, we were treated to the introduction of the ReLive, LiquidVR, and Radeon Chill features. AMD is keeping up with its annual overhauls, even after former RTG head, Raja Koduri, left the company for bluer pastures.

Twitter user Blaze #BlazeK_AMDRT shared some screenshots over Twitter which show that the new driver release will, among other things, include an OSD for performance metrics - not unlike what NVIDIA is offering with its GeForce Experience suite. However, AMD will likely keep ringing the "no registration necessary" bell to increase attractiveness of its software suite over NVIDIA's. From the screenshots, however, it seems that AMD's suite will offer more registers than NVIDIA, to polls like VRAM, CPU usage, among others. AMD's track record with software and drivers has been much improved since Raja Koduri took the helms of RTG, with a much steadier driver release schedule, and pre-emptive releases introducing support for the latest and greatest games. It's at least comforting to see that there's no sign of that reverting after he left the company.

Nice!

Hopefully it doesn't get flagged like these other overlays, getting gamers banned from games.

If a cheat protection does this, it needs to be sacked because it's garbage.
It doesn't, but internet gossip would have ppl believe that.

Also ReLive has worked from day one with destiny 2 as has Shadow play and OBS (just not in fullscreen).

Nice. Would be nicer if they could add 1-click real time OC profiles like their OEM partners. Then we can get rid of additional apps and reduce the likelihood of anti-cheats getting confused at times.

HBCC is functional. It just doesn't have much use for gaming unless the game uses more than 8GB, which is pretty rare. HBCC shouldn't even be on a consumer card as ijt's a long way from becoming useful to everyday people.

Time lapse there eh? The problem appeared after a game update and still the crimson driver from July 2017 works well (17.7.1). So, 4 months and not a year since then.

OSD is a really nice thing to get with the driver software IMO. Simply because that is also a universal way for developers to take it into account within games. With Rivatuner you can be making a bannable offense in some games.

Nvidia, take the hint pls

Meh, never liked the Crimson bloatware (or the GeForce Experience bloatware), I just want a slim driver with no bundled software crap like they used to make.

If I want to overclock the card or run overlays there's better optional/aftermarket apps for it.

I've been impressed for quite some time with game ready drivers, and have had no problems of my own with drivers in the games I play.

Based on AMD's track record supporting older cards I feel Fiji will, but I hope it's soon too. Unless there is some technical reason it can't.

Benchmarks are starting to show some weird numbers between Hawaii, Fiji and Vega that don't correlate to their performance.

I also look forward to OSD capabilities with Crimson and I will replace Riva tuner because that's all I use it for. Less monitoring, the better because I always keep my eye on FPS so I can adjust game settings if I need to when I play new games.

I believe a Vega32 and below could use it... but that's about it.

And again HBCC is not functional, only driver it's working on (somewhat) is on the Radeon FCU public beta driver.

Try it for yourself and you'll see what I'm talking about.

And it does work below 8gb as well ;)
