AMD Quick Stream

What is AMD Quick Stream?

AMD Quick Stream Technology is an Internet stream optimization software powered by AppEx Networks’ IPEQ (IP End to end Quality Of Service) technology that prioritizes and shapes the Internet data streams flowing in and out the PC, allowing the high-priority streams and apps to dynamically enjoy the better network resources when competing the limited bandwidth with other less important ones. At the sametime it boosts the overall Internet performance by shaping both the inbound and outbound traffic to eliminate or reduce the chances of traffic congestions. AMD Quick Stream Technology offers the end users smoother and enhanced Internet experiences.

Microsoft is upgrading my Windows 8 to 8.1 and before it did that, we were to check on compatibility of drivers; the only non-compatible thing found was AMD Quick Stream. If I remove this, then upgrade to Windows 8.1, will I need to have replaced it with something else? I'm clueless on some things, like drivers

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and it came with this AMD Quick Stream software. My wifi worked but when I installed 3G USB modem, it refused to browse. I can ping but not browse. I battled with this for days till I went to Adapter settings (for the 3G modem) and unchecked the AMD Quick Stream, it started working. Is it beneficial? I do not know but I do know that it gave me sleepless nights till I 'fixed' it.
