The new AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1 driver is now available, enhancing Radeon Pro professional graphics with stability, performance, security features, simplicity and more.
Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1 accelerates product design workflows with a host of features designed to boost designer’s and engineer’s productivity, including performance improvements in select applications and over 320 “Day Zero” ISV application certifications. The new features include support for workstation wireless VR, improved image quality using AMD Radeon Pro Image Boost, expanded functionality for AMD Remote Workstation, and “One Driver” support coming soon for the AMD Radeon VII.
Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1 launches with over 320 “Day Zero” ISV application certifications for Radeon Pro graphics cards including for Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk VRED Professional, Bentley Systems Microstation, GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD, SideFX Houdini, SIEMENS NX, and SIEMENS Solid Edge.
Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1 supports workstation wireless VR on AMD Radeon VR Ready Creator graphics cards 8, ready for the upcoming release of AMD’s Radeon Pro ReLive for VR application for standalone VR with 6DoF tracking technology. With this new workstation wireless VR capability, designers can visualize and interact with their creations on their workstation PC with a wireless standalone VR headset.
This new feature is the professional version of our Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) technology tuned for use with professional applications and allows Radeon Pro graphics to output at a higher resolution (up to 5K) and then scale down to the lower native resolution of your display. Radeon Pro Image Boost allows you to present complex and detailed designs.
AMD Remote Workstation has been upgraded to support application virtualization and streaming using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenApp & XenDesktop). We also recently announced that AMD Remote Workstation support is available on more platforms, including the HPE Edgeline EL4000 Engineering Workstation.
Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise 19.Q1 simplifies deployment and delivers the stability, simplicity and security of Radeon Pro Software to knowledge workers using commercial applications and content creators using media and entertainment applications with AMD Radeon graphics cards (Radeon VII “One Driver” support coming soon). However, the workstation application certifications and optimizations available with AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise when using Radeon Pro graphics cards are NOT available when using AMD Radeon graphics cards.
