Starting with the performance side of things, AMD is providing a 10-15% average performance benefit in some of the latest AAA games like Project CARS 2 and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands.

For the mainstream gamers who are flocking to eSports-ready games like Overwatch, a huge 14% performance improvement is very welcomed.

There's also borderless windowed multi-GPU support now, which is probably not used that much - but there are some multi-GPU gamers (note, no longer CrossFire) that will love this feature.
