Why use RadeonPro?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I understand that the usage of RadeonPro can be very usefull against microstuttering in multiple card setups.
But is there another reason you use RadeonPro?

In my case, i use a single 7950, i use MSI afterburner to overclock it and i use MSI on screen display (comes with afterburner) to limit frames down to 59. This in combination with the in games' Vsync results in no screen tearing and no input lag 99% of the times. In fact i haven't been playing a game that does give me these annoying conditions.

So having the whole screen tearing and input lag covered, is there another reason to use RadeonPro in my case?

I think no. I mainly use RadeonPro because of it's OSD (with combination of HIS iTurbo) to monitor memory usage, temps and such. I think it's more useful for multi-GPU setups or if you want to set application specific settings or something like that.

I've just been trying it out, and i am dumping fraps as an OSD and i'm gonna be using RadeonPro, much more info, and it beats afterburner's OSD too.

Other then that, not sure yet. Maybe the AA injection things are something to look into, but i'm thinking it's not gonna be worth the hussle unless you have games that do not have AA at all.

SweetFX integration would be another reason to use RadeonPro. It even works on Nvidia cards.

Sweetfx and other graphical toggles all in one. Why wouldn't use it.

Is there like a sweet spot to go with on that?
I don't want games crashing because of it. And is it worth the hassle for games, for example, will my games run smoother and/or look better noticably?

I mostly play Guild Wars 2, is it worth it experimenting with it? or will i be wasting time because the benefits are hardly noticable/worth it.

If done right, your games will look better at the cost of a slight performance hit.

Definantly interresting. I will be looking into this, but what about a sweet spot? any settings that are generally good?

It honestly depends on the game as well as your own personal tastes. The default settings (SMAA+LumaSharpen+Vibrance) are a pretty good starting point for most games.

And Curves, people. CURVES CONTRAST!! tongue.gif

I have some good Metro:LL screenshots with SweetFX before/after:






For those shouting "overexposed!". As in all, "good" is a matter of personal tastes, and I like the increased contrast between dark/lit environments. Makes stealth more stealthier and keeps away the dusty & washed out feeling. The wonderful thing about SweetFX it's that is highly tweakable and as such, once you get the grip of which does what, you can custom it to your likings on a per game basis. Is easy as hell and can be done on-the-fly:Alt+Tab, change a setting, into the game again biggrin.gif

Add to that all the functionality of the vanilla CCC+AO for games without AO support, FXAA, SMAA, LOD adjustment, a variety of vsync/frame limiting modes, tweaks, HQ screenshots, HQ video, benchmarking, FPS counter, etc etc etc. A pretty good tool I must say...if only you were capable of downsampling(in time) and adding bits like in Nvidia Inspector, it would be perfect biggrin.gif
