Update (7/31/17): The original version of this article incorrectly stated that AMD had released this software update. Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Vega-based Radeon Professional Graphics is not available for download today, and will be published when Vega-based professional products are released. At this time, this includes the $2199 MSRP Radeon Pro WX 9100 and $6999 MSRP Radeon Pro SSG (Vega), both of which are slated for September 13.

Following up last week’s launch of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2, AMD today is announcing Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition for Vega-based Radeon Professional Graphics, earlier known as version 17.8. With the official unveiling of Vega-based products yesterday, this edition of Radeon Pro Software brings support to the Radeon Pro WX 9100, Radeon Pro SSG (Vega), and Radeon Vega Frontier Edition.

Radeon Pro: Crimson ReLive Edition for Vega

ReLive Edition for Vega Pro comes with support for 8K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays, something that was included in this past Thursday’s release of Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Driver 17.Q3 for non-Vega Radeon Pro products. Likewise, ReLive enhancements from 17.7.2 will also be present in the Vega Radeon Pro software.

This version also comes with bug fixes and enhanced features for the Radeon ProRender plugins/add-ins such as Autodesk 3DS Max, Autodesk Maya, Solidworks, and Blender. Additionally, AMD notes that Radeon ProRender will be integrated into the upcoming R19 release of MAXON Cinema 4D. 

Security-wise, the Pro WX9100, the new Vega SSG, and Vega Frontier Edition have AMD Secure Processors, a feature recently seen in EPYC and Ryzen Pro CPUs. This hardware root of trust operates during both boot time and shutdown, and works in conjunction with Radeon Pro Software and Microsoft Device Guard.

The rest of ReLive Edition for Vega Pro builds on Radeon Pro Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.6, which was Radeon Vega Frontier Edition’s inaugural driver. This includes full functionality of Radeon Pro Software “Driver Options,” where the user can ‘swap’ between Radeon Pro Software and select Radeon Software versions without a reboot. Previously in ReLive Edition 17.6, swapping was limited to switching UIs.

ReLive Edition for Vega Pro allows the user to actually load two Radeon Software gaming drivers in addition to the installed professional driver. This will enable the use of gaming software features (except WattMan for adjusting GPU frequency). The swap functionality is intended for both game development workflows and just plain convenient gaming. AMD has clarified that this feature is only available for Vega-based professional products at the moment.

These drivers can be found at the AMD workstation graphics driver download page once Vega-based Radeon Pro cards are available.

    Half of the words in this article are Radeon, Pro, ReLive and Edition. It's unreadable. Reply

    You mean the guy responsible for the Radeon Streamline ReLive Pro Edition Vega WX Crimson Frontier marketing efforts?

    He’ll keep his job forever. He’s the only one who is mentally tough enough to be able to deal with having the title of Senior Vice President of Radeon Streamline ReLive Pro Edition Vega WX Crimson Frontier Marketing.

    decided to give new drivers a chance to maybe install on my 2008 R7 for the first time in 1.5-2 years. nooooope. spent 2+ hours uninstalling and reinstalling drivers trying to figure out which drivers in 2015 last worked. turned out after almost the entire 2 hours that it was 4Q14 that last installed. oh and each driver set was ~500MB except for the last. : | Reply

    2008 R7? What's that when it's at home? Reply

    Really glad AMD took the initiative to create ProRender GPU acceleration for various popular software. Few companies have interest after they've heavily invested in CUDA and Blender devs have not been completely successful in their OpenCL cycles' renderer on AMD after several years. Reply
