    AMD's Scott Wasson walked us through the new Adrenalin driver update while the team visited GN HQ. We'll look at this further independently, but here's the overview.
    Ad: Buy the Thermaltake Core P3 geni.us/3qJNr on Amazon
    As noted above, this is something we will be looking at further independently, but AMD arrived at GN HQ ahead of driver availability. This gave us an opportunity to get an early look, though we're reserving judgment for further testing on desktop parts (only a laptop was used for this demo). Thus far, major improvements boasted include, of relevance to our audience, WattMan overhauls for fan profiles and overclocking options. We are still recovering from all the travel the past few days, but lots of cool stuff queued-up from the test lab. Give us a few days to work through the interview/collaborative content.

Damn, the installation on AMD.Com is not updated or something. After I installed 18.12.2, in Radeon Settings it says there is an update 18.12.2. The wattman is all the same. WTF??

@Gamers Nexus Were light levels in your studio lower than usual, or is it YouTube compression I couldn't help but notice the heavy dithering on the blacks (e.g. your t-shirt, the radeon cards on the table). I'm watching the 1080p@60 encoding.

It's easy for many of us that are GN frequenters to almost laugh off easy/auto types of tweaking and optimization, but this does apply to the gaming mass market. In other words, it makes overclocking and optimizing more accessible for those new and less experienced or technical-oriented in the market. TY AMD. We know you haven't given up in the GPU space. Navi looks good -- we'll finally be able to let Polaris R.I.P. by 2020. RX 590 isn't mind-blowing but beneficial for mainstream gaming. IMO, AMD Radeon graphics drivers firmly overtook nVidia drivers in 2018. The driver GUI for my GTX 1080 feels like circa-2005.

does older card uses this new features example like an R9 290 or 290x....the latest driver 2019 i use doesn't has the feature for performance and wattman fan curve feature...i mostly use MSI afterburner...some feature wont work with older card for the new driver on my hardware...well hoping if they coming with an update on that...mostly see these driver uses on the polaris card rather than older ones...

I like this. Me personally wouldn't use this anyway since I rather tweak things manually but for those that are new to PC like ex-console gamers, this is as welcome change. This is farcry from what I had to deal with in AMD 5 years ago. Back then, AMD went from monthly driver Update to yearly Update. That was my last straw to switch to Nvidia after 10 years of having AMD/ATI graphics solution. If AMD releases something more similar performing card to 1080TI, I would switch back to AMD in a heartbeat.

I have 18.12.2 for my Vega 64. Once it hits the temp I set on the fan curve, it ramps up to the rpm I set. Can you ask Scott if there is a possibility of them interpolating the rpm between the points set on the fan curve for the next update. The sound level change is kinda jarring and I feel like I wouldnt notice it as much if it was more gradual.

After seeing this video, I checked my RX-480's tab settings in WattMan and was surprised to discover that by default "Zero RPM" was set "ON" - so I guess the fan wasn't even running as seen in its rpm display? I turned this setting to "OFF" and the fan then showed it was running at about 850 rpm, and the GPU temperature dropped from about 60C down to near 40C. Why on earth was "Zero RPM" ever set as a default? I also tried to adjust the very confusing "Min Acoustic Limit" setting, which didn't seem to obviously do anything at all. *All these settings need some good "help" tips to reasonably explain them!*

NVIDIA should learn from AMD when it comes to software. NVIDIA Control Panel looks like something that escaped from 2004. It's slow, buggy and glitchy. Sure, it sort of does the job done, but come on, don't be freaking lazy NVIDIA. You make top notch hardware and software looks like you don't even bother. AMD on the other hand, has some issues hardware side, but damn, software is just epic. Which is why I'm hoping for AMD to get their stuff together so I can switch back to Radeon again. Or if NVIDIA moves their lazy butt and I might stay with NVIDIA... The fact GTX 1080Ti has the same control panel as GeForce 7600GT I believe that I owned ages ago is just baffling.

I want to say that I really respect AMD for what they are doing and their success with Ryzen, I really like you guys for trying to be competitive and stuff and being open with the public and the consumers, but I really couldnt care less about your driver updates and revamps at this point until You bring a usefull high end GPU to the market that would make a difference and shake the industry. Back in the day I was strong AMD supporter but in the recent years after the lack of CPUs from AMD and constant rebranding of GPUs and not being on par with nVidia I switched sides. Bought 1080 at launch and never regreted it, even till today. Bring us a killer GPU and kick nVidia in the teeth like you did with intel!

Sorry, but after all the driver troubles i got with my fury X for over a year and after switching to a GTX everything got solved like magic i`ll never buy a Radeon again. No more texture problems in FO4, no more stuttering in my video record and a cheaper electrical bill. Radeons are dead for me for a lonnnnnnnnnnnng time. The only game that card worked great were mad max and Doom 2016, but i guess that`s because they were vulkan titles.

Damn! That many of you facing the same problem!!!?? I thought it's just me! 😯 This problem started with my r9 280x, kept happaning randomly for years, a month ago i bought rx 590 and its became a major problem now... after launching any game or gpu benchmark app the screen goes black within 2-3 min as soon as the temp hits 70-75c! Only temporary solution i found is increase the gpu fan speed to 100 and keep the temp as low as it can... succeeded to run it about half an hour... as the temp keeps going up very slowly i believe it can happen again if it hits 70 or so... never tried more then 30 min yet! I'm totally horrified with this problem at this point! 😨🤕

This looks so much nicer to use than the Geforce Experience which I'd normally disable from startup after a week. Also sort of unrelated but MSI and EVGA please, please, please take note of what a functional interface should look like. I know you provide Afterburner and Precision X for free and we appreciate it, but the emphasis on aesthetic over function can be infuriating at times.

Hay Scott, the user has also requested for you to fix the driver so it doesn't have a random memory leak and high cpu usage from the Radeon Settings: Host Application. Can we get that fixed first because that bug has plagued the drivers for many, many years now. The only way I have fixed it, is to end task on that program after start-up. Fresh install and re-install never fixes it on my R7 360. I want to buy Nvidia just because of that problem and because of that problem I recommend Nvidia to others, because I'm the person that works on their stuff when they have problems!

So now when you play a game you have steam/origin/uplay/gog overlay, you have nvidia/amd overlay, you have windows/xbox overlay, so minimum 3 overlays (that you cant get rid off) are running with the game from the start - then if you use something like overwolf, or other overlays on top of that you have 4 or more. I imagine the hit on CPU/RAM is quite big - it is insane, I dont need 3th party software run with my game and I would need to do research to find out if I can disable them (at least you cant steam, dont know about xbox and nvidia/amd ones)
