Say goodbye to there Catalyst, and welcome the Software in general, and Crimson in particular.

AMD's current move feels like an attempt to resemble the main competitor , Which has been pushing forward for years, Experience - one software that concentrates all the capabilities and features associated with the cards Under a single designed roof and brand, which also includes its drivers (previously branded separately as ForceWare, similar to AMD's Catalyst).
