AMD's Radeon RX Vega Launch Drivers Released

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅14.08.2017 14:39:39



Those eager to get their hands on AMD's latest GPU architecture don't have long to wait. Reviews have just gone live from outlets who were sampled, and the cards themselves are scheduled to be at stores in the UK from tomorrow (Tuesday 15th August). Quite rightly the Red Team want to ensure that the transition to Radeon RX Vega is a seamless as possible, and so in line with their Day 0 driver release schedule for major new videogame titles they've now launched a Day 0 update specifically for Vega.

The rather ponderously titled Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Radeon RX Vega Series is a touch skimpy on listing new features beyond the most important: support for Radeon RX Vega series graphics products. No games are specifically targeted for these drivers, but they are expected to roll in the improvements made through recent generations. Included among these updates are the recent additions to the ReLive package layout out at the end of July

Full release notes, such as they are, can be found below. The new drivers can be downloaded here, with separate packages for Windows 7 and 10. Only 64-bit versions of these operating systems are supported, and this driver update is unnecessary for those not running a RX Vega GPU.
