This library provides software developers with the ability to query AMD GPU software and hardware state information that is not normally available through standard operating system or graphic APIs. The library includes support for querying graphics driver version info, Crossfire (AMD’s multi-GPU rendering technology) configuration info, as well as Eyefinity (AMD’s multi-display rendering technology) configuration info. AGS is available in dynamic library form for 32 and 64 bit versions of Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Latest version of AGS now exposes driver extensions.
