    Not tried it myself. There was the option for a AMD Minimal Setup installer (~39MB) which just downloads the components you want.

    This driver release is absolutely superb. Just been testing Enhanced Sync and the Performance Overlay in Planetside 2 and they work perfectly. Love the new options to trim game footage captured with ReLive. Got a new monitor coming next week too so really looking forward to using Chill and FreeSync

    This is a bit like an early Xmas present from RTG here. The sheer number of improvements is amazing, particularly enhanced sync. This will keep me going fine until I can get a decent FreeSync monitor (IPS/VA, >=1440P, 24", ideally HDR but not a deal-breaker).

    Re: AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition released

    It is really impressive. I watched the PC Perspective interview with AMD on the drivers (HIGHLY recommend PCPER website and youtube and podcast) and the amount of progress is quite commendable. I will be downloading these drivers soon (I don't game much so I didn't get them yesterday, also I'm doing some crypto stuff so I don't want to have to restart at the moment).

    However as I commented on Reddit there still seem to be some Vega architecture features which the drivers don't take advantage of. The jury is out if these features even work (sheeesh) but I believe they most likely do (after all it's AMD, they are good) and I want to see these uarch features in the drivers sooner rather than later. Call it speculative, but I can see with these features the Vega 56 matching or beating 1080 perf. That's a guess. Good day!

    Re: AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition released

    For Linux users this is a big deal.

    KVM virtualisation drivers allow gpu access from hosts. Normal and Pro drivers are included in the release.

    The Vulkan driver is finally open sourced, though there is already a superb AMD Vulkan driver in the open source stack hopefully some ideas and code from AMD's driver can get blended in and make things even better.

    So even though I don't use the closed source AMD driver, some bits of this look rather good and should filter through.
