AMD’s Radeon Pro Software Enterprise Edition is designed to meet the exacting demands of enterprises, with quarterly driver updates that deliver enterprise-grade quality on a consistent basis. Today’s 18.Q2 release continues to provide the reliability, security features, simplicity, and innovations professionals have come to expect of Radeon™ Pro Software, along with performance increases in leading professional applications. In addition, the 18.Q2 driver adds support for the Windows® 10 April 2018 Update.

The AMD Commitment to Enterprise Edition Quality

AMD’s comprehensive stability testing process helps ensure that every Enterprise Edition driver delivers enterprise-grade quality and reliability to our users. Our enterprise drivers go through waves of both AMD and OEM partner testing, and this extensive pre-launch testing helps to minimize post-launch issues.

OEM and ISV Partner testing and a final wave of beta user testing helps ensure the highest-quality enterprise software, and in 2017 this led to zero issues reported by over 99.99% of our customers. 1

AMD’s extensive ISV application certification testing results in enterprise software that is certified on over 80 of the leading applications professionals use. For our last 18.Q1 Enterprise Edition driver, we had a 100% pass rate for all the certifications we submitted. 1
