AMD will be launching a new Crimson driver software for Radeon graphics powered computers very soon. The software will replace the Catalyst Control center and it has been designed to make configuration of graphics an easy task for the user.
AMD has been releasing updates on a regular basis for the CCC application as well as for the graphic drivers but the company has not bothered to change the dull interface of the control center.
AMD now seems to be serious about the looks and feel of its application because the company has claimed that it took nearly a year to design and develop Radeon Crimson.
AMD will be hoping that the hard work pays off and Crimson will be happily adopted by the Radeon GPU users and fans.
If you’re an AMD laptop or computer user, you will be well aware of the fact that navigation system in CCC is complex and you’ll have to spend a lot of time to configure graphics settings. The successor i.e AMD Radeon Crimson is very intuitive and it is bundled with some new graphics configuration option.
It has a beautiful and modern UI. This software uses tabbed interface just like its predecessor. The tabs are gray colored and the background color of the Interface is black, grey, red. The text is white. Crimson’s main interface i.e dashboard will feature social network links so that you can easily follow or contact AMD.
Crimson also features a new Eyefinity settings. It has tabs to configure desktop, gaming, preferences, video and notifications. It has a button to find and download the latest AMD drivers update.
The software will include several new presets that will offer the best gaming experience to the user.
The latest settings include shader cache, frame rate target controls, overclocking of the GPU, etc. Crimson will allow users to create graphics profile for the games installed on their machine. This feature is very useful because you don’t have to readjust graphics when you switch from one game to the other.
