AMD Releases Radeon Crimson ReLive Drivers – XConnect Technology Improvements for Vega 56

XConnect is AMD’s technology that allows seamless plug and play ability for eGPU enclosures, and with this update, AMD is increasing the number of eGPU solutions that support AMD’s RX Vega 56 graphics cards in this configuration. There’s also an extensive list of fixes (including a particularly nasty bug where system devices such as printers could be removed during Radeon Software uninstallation) and known issues, which you can catch after the break. As always, you can download your drivers right here, on the best website of the known universe. Just follow the link below.

 

Plug In and Game On

Now it’s easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon™ graphics card. With AMD XConnect™ technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon™ Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in-1 over Thunderbolt™ 31 at any time, just like a USB flash drive—a first for external GPUs!

 

External GPUs Done Right

Portability meets performance with AMD XConnect™ technology.1

  • Serious framerates: Get the performance of a gaming PC on the go.
  • Easy to use: Great gaming on the go doesn’t have to be complicated thanks to AMD XConnect™ technology.
  • Easy to carry: Performance and portability on your terms – take powerful graphics when you need them, or leave them behind when you don’t.
  • Game bigger: When your high-resolution screen isn’t enough, put your games on the big screen with support for external displays up to 4K resolution.
  • Work smarter: Take it to the next level at your desk with all the comfort and capability of a desktop PC on your notebook with support for multiple monitors, additional peripherals and more.
  • Keep playing: Gamers know that most gaming notebooks can never be upgraded, but with AMD XConnect™, Radeon™ graphics can be upgraded at any time to keep you in the game in the future.2
