    • Up to 97% average increase in performance across select titles at 1080p resolution when AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) is ON and upscaled with FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2) at Quality Mode, using AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 24.1.1 on the Radeon™ RX 7600XT GPU, versus when AFMF and FSR 2 upscaling are OFF. RS-630
    • Up to 103% average increase in performance across select titles at 1440p resolution when AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) is ON and upscaled with FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2) at Quality Mode, using AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 24.1.1 on the Radeon™ RX 7600XT GPU, versus when AFMF and FSR 2 upscaling are OFF. RS-631
    • AFMF preserves image quality by dynamically disabling frame generation during fast visual motion.

AMD Video Upscaling – Advanced video upscale algorithm to improve video playback image quality for AMD Radeon™ RX 7000 desktop series GPUs.

What to Know

AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF)

  • AFMF can be enabled for any DirectX® 11 and 12 title using HYPR-RX.
  • AFMF may introduce additional latency to games and may not offer the optimal experience for fast-paced competitive titles. AFMF is recommended to be combined with AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag to reduce in-game latency while maintaining a minimum in-game fps of 60.
  • Due to the potential latency impact of AFMF, it must be manually enabled in the per-game settings for certain fast-paced competitive titles, even if AFMF was already enabled globally. Gamers are free to enable AFMF in these titles based on their preference and gameplay style, however, they may not experience optimal performance – specifically at lower frame rates.
  • AFMF may be enabled or disabled on the fly using the default hotkey of Alt-Shift-G.
  • AFMF currently requires the game to be played in fullscreen mode with VSYNC disabled.
    • For better compatibility with borderless-fullscreen titles, Windows 11 users can enable "Optimizations for windowed games".
    • For a better visual experience, AFMF is recommended to be used with variable refresh rate enabled.
  • Users can check AFMF’s frame generation status using AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition™’s in-game overlay.
  • AFMF adds frame generation technology to boost FPS outside the game’s engine. Users can use AMD Software Performance Metrics Overlay to see the resulting FPS.
    • Support for third-party performance monitoring tools is not available at this moment.
  • For systems setup using Hybrid Graphics (such as laptops featuring an integrated and discrete GPU), AFMF must be supported on the displaying GPU to be activated.
  • Stay tuned for future enhancements and innovations coming to HYPR-RX with AFMF, focusing on elevating image quality, smoothness, and latency. Enjoy gaming with HYPR-RX.

AMD Video Upscaling

  • AMD Video Upscaling can be enabled for most DirectX 11 applications to improve image quality. However, certain applications such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge may require an additional step to activate AMD Video Upscaling.
  • For Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, 'Media Foundation for Clear' must be enabled. This setting can be configured in the browser settings accessed through chrome://flags/ or edge://flags/.
  • Users have the flexibility to adjust the level of sharpness added by AMD Video Upscaling using the slider located within the Graphics tab.

AMD Technical Preview Driver

  • Users had the opportunity to get an early look of AFMF through the AMD Technical Preview Drivers and provide their feedback to build and refine the feature. The feedback received through our online communities and AMD Bug Report Tool helped create a more stable experience for AFMF in AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 24.1.1.
  • Users looking for updates of future AMD Technical Preview Drivers can subscribe to our newsletter HERE.

Fixed Issues

  • Performance drop may be observed in some DirectML workloads.
  • Intermittent grey screen after driver upgrade with certain monitors (such as Nixeus NX-EDG274K) on Radeon™ RX 7000 series GPUs.
  • Graphics API metric may show as N/A in certain UWP applications.
  • Heavy stuttering may be experienced while playing Warframe and loading into a new area or starting a mission.
  • Black artifacts may be observed in smoke effects while playing Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® III.
  • Black texture flickering may be observed while playing Starfield on some AMD Graphics Products, such as the Radeon™ RX 5600 XT.
  • Intermittent install failure may be observed when using the factory reset setting.

What about 24.2.1 ?


For me on 7900xt 24.2.1 has the same problems with the crashes. For rendering I cannot say, since I don't use it.


24.2.1 crashes as well on the 7900xtx only drivers i found to work perfect after you clean out old drivers with DDU was 23.11.1



I used DDU cleaned out drivers then installed older drivers 23.11.1 works perfect now.

This driver version breaks Lightroom Classic. Constant freezing, crashing, and weird color changes. Confirmed by wiping 1 week old laptop and building up one piece of software at a time until LRc no longer worked.

This driver made all my games unplayable. I'm not exaggerating either. I get either a directx error on Warzone, or it just crashes my PC completely. Helldivers crashes before I can even get through training, every single time. PUBG looks like potato land. Tarkov crashes randomly.

I rolled back to 23.11.1 from November and every game is rock solid. I'm not sure about Helldivers because I returned it through Steam... but you guys have to do something about these drivers. Both the December driver and now this January driver crash games constantly. I paid $900 for my 7900XTX and while it's not a 4090, this thing shouldn't have these kinds of issues.

I am all for Drivers that improve performance , and I am all for getting better performance out of older equipment saving people money.




I also believe that the devices you buy, should especially these days have the pure brute horsepower to do the job on simple basic drivers!


I honestly applaud AMD and Nvidia for  trying to get the best "FPS" out of their cards, but WHY????


the only way your going to benefit from a High FPS is if you have a High HZ monitor. 60Hz = 60 FPS, 100Hz Monitor = 100FPS, 120Hz Monitor =120FPS you get the gist!

The Majority of People are running 60Hz Monitors so they are locked at 60FPS, they then use the Horsepower of the cards to increase their visual experience of the game / application at the capability of their Monitor.

Using Frame Generation,  is giving you the upped experience, but at the cost of the actual scenes.


I for one would like to    have the drivers Enrich the visual display  with Ray Tracing - shading - colour replication, all at my Monitors capabilities. Not making me have too run out and spend Hundred's & thousands of Pounds / Dollars / Euros / Whatever is your local currency in buying a 300Hz + Monitor to play a game that's going to cost you $/€/£60 to buy!!!


Over and Above the Problems I have had with These Drivers, I am More than impressed with the Asus Gaming OC 7900XTX, its still playing Metro Exodus Full Ray Tracing  as well (possibly Better) as My EVGA RTX2080 FTW3 Gaming Ultra (they really have to shorten these names!!!) did. and at 4K 60Hz.


This may be a moan and Groan page in the majority, but I hope AMD Keeps going Forward , as well as intel and Nvidia ,  it benefits everyone in the long run!!!


as an unsolicited Dig in, in case  anyone from AMD actually reads these!!!  How about Joining in with Steve and Wendel  / Gamers Nexus , and get the Old RGB standardised, as well as a few other things that need to go back the way on a common platform!!
