In recent months, we kicked off a special project inside of the Radeon™ Software group known as Project ReSX (Radeon™ eSports Experience). The goal of this project was to optimize the performance of some of the most popular PC games in the world on Radeon™ GPUs, to ensure the best possible eSports experience for Radeon graphics card owners.

Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.1 incorporates a host of changes made possible by Project ReSX. It delivers some notable performance improvements over the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition version released late last year. With a focus on overall gaming experience, Project ReSX focused on improving FPS performance, 99th percentile frame times and click-to-response to deliver a better eSports experience. Here are some of the gains:
