You answered a question with a question....dont you think this is a major driver release?
No, it's a major driver release, similar to those from 2014 and 2015.I don't know if it's a major driver release, that's why I asked. To me it looks like bundled software and not drivers.
Last years release had a 1% improvement in general - http://www.anandtech.com/show/9811/amd-crimson-driver-overview/5Reported to also have performance improvements at the driver level.

http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-software-crimson-relive-driver-leak/On the performance side, Radeon cards such as the RX 480 see up to 8% performance increase with ReLive.
You can record right now with Plays.TV and GameDVR with AMD hardware with near zero, or zero performance hit. Shadowplay performance is also near zero hit as far as i know.Performance is a little better than Shadowplay.
The cards can do better encoding than Live is able to do for now but better support should not be far away.
