Live streamers, rejoice! AMD's new ReLive Edition driver rabrings better power management, improved graphical performance, and new gameplay capture and streaming software.

AMD today released an update to its Radeon Software Crimson Driver, dubbing the new version (16.12.1) "ReLive." The new driver update brings some bug fixes and graphics card optimizations; the key addition, however, is the new gameplay capture and streaming feature. 

The new ReLive recording software allows users to record gameplay, take screenshots, and even stream footage directly to Twitch, YouTube, and other compatible services. The driver also includes an "Instant Replay" feature which stores up to 20 minutes of gameplay or desktop use on a buffer and allows users to keep footage without actively recording. The ReLive software seems to be AMD's answer to Nvidia's Shadowplay recording software.

Also included in the update are features like Radeon Chill (which "dynamically regulates frame rate based on... in-game movements" to reduce power draw and keep temperatures under control) and increased Radeon WattMan support to allow easier overclocking for more AMD GPUs. 

This driver isn't limited to consumer GPUs; AMD's line of Radeon Pro professional graphics cards will also get the update. This includes the ReLive recording software, which can be used to record either gameplay or the user's desktop.

A full list of features and download links for this driver can be found here.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
