AMD GPU Services (AGS) library 5.0
« on: December 08, 2016, 09:55:50 PM »
 Version 5.0 is a major overhaul of the library designed to provide a much clearer view of the GPUs in the system and the displays attached to them. It also exposes the ability to query each display for HDR capabilities and put those HDR-capable displays into various HDR modes.
Highlights include the following:
 
  • Full GPU enumeration with adapter string, device id, revision id and vendor id.
  • Per-GPU display enumeration including information on display name, resolution, and HDR capabilities.
  • Optional user-supplied memory allocator.
  • Function to set displays into HDR mode.1
  • DirectX 11 shader compiler controls.1
  • DirectX 11 multiview extension.2
  • DirectX 11 Crossfire API updates.
    • Now supports using the API without needing a driver profile.
    • You can also now specify the transfer engine.
