[Etek] Goodbye Catalyst Control Center – Hello Radeon Software Crimson Edition! - Page 7

None of the raptr features exist in this new software. Social media links are nothing more than a link to follow AMD on social sites (harmless). There are no video record functions in this new software ala raptr. There is also no auto-game optimizations ala raptr. You are safe. you can go back to defcon 1. go look at the slides and read the interviews with Terry makedon, if you would like. IT does however seem like Terry would like to put those features in a future version, which I imagine would be next years version of this software.

The main problem with Raptr is it comes off as being shovel-ware or some kind of near virus.

I'm so glad CCC is being ditched. It's been horrible for years now. AMD's mistake to partner with Raptr only made things worse.

I installed that raptr gaming app thing once upon a time just to try it....never again. I wish AMD never partnered with them.

I used it for some game recording before OBS supported it through a branch. Not bad, but not great either. Raptr's service itself also seems superfluous.

As long as it loads as quick if not quicker and I can get to the settings as fast I will be fine. If it's worse in either regard than it is a fail to me. I don't care about how it looks, I only care about stability, performance and ease of use.

Maybe, maybe not. I just see it as the retiring of nomenclature and branding that people attribute to the AMD/ATI flavored past so that the work product of the new Radeon Tech. Group isn't tainted. Being that they are a specialized and independent bunch now hopefully the work product will reflect it.

It used to have some good giveaways, but they haven't for a long time now.

I think after running it on my computer for 2 years I have enough points saved to buy a sticker from their market. tongue.gif

i like the focus on software development. it's sorely needed from AMD


as for the 'gaming' features, it looks like a simpler way to do some manual tweaking on a per-game basis. these are just per-game profiles, which isn't a new concept

i'm not sure how 3rd party apps handled this before, but I never really liked having to go change my clock/fan/framelimit speeds globally every time I switched from one game to another

granted, I haven't used AMD graphics cards in over 5 years for good reason, but if some of those same issues exist, then this would simplify things

What are people even using CCC for? (rhetorical question). I almost never have to open it for anything, it gets installed with drivers and that's about it. I suppose I do use it to toggle crossfire occasionally...
