Today, AMD has released one of its most anticipated software releases in recent years and possibly the most significant graphics driver release in the company’s history. The Radeon Software Crimson Edition features an all-new design, performance optimizations and a slew of new features for Radeon users. You can download the software here.

It also promises to load up 10x faster than the aforementioned Catalyst Control Center, which should mean a lot for users on traditional hard drives.

The new software is definitely exciting and we’ll have a full review/overview of our experiences with it in the coming week.
