AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition is getting a new update with two amazing features: AMD HYPR-RX1 and AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag+2. HYPR-RX is our latest feature that allows users to easily optimize their Radeon Graphics and achieve elevated performance and reduce latency in games. With HYPR-RX enabled, AMD Radeon™ Super Resolution3 (RSR), AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag4, and AMD Radeon™ Boost5 work together to elevate your performance and minimize your input latency by stacking the benefits from each one of these technologies on any compatible HYPR-TUNED game.
What is a HYPR-TUNED game? It simply means games that we have automatically enabled RSR or AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution6 (FSR) within after HYPR-RX is enabled - meaning no user-intervention in the game is required. To be clear, non HYPR-TUNED games can still take advantage of the performance benefits of HYPR-RX, they only need an extra step where you would lower your input resolution to activate RSR or select an FSR preset within the game settings to play with these features.
We are starting off with these 15 supported HYPR-TUNED titles for launch, but we will expand to many more current and upcoming titles in the future. These initially supported titles are:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Dying Light 2 Stay Human
Forza Horizon 5
Horizon Zero Dawn
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Red Dead Redemption 2
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
To give you a sneak peek at the performance stacking effect you can expect from enabling HYPR-RX, below are some results from 6 HYPR-TUNED titles tested across various Radeon RX GPUs:
See endnote RS-584. Anti-Lag+ product support is limited to RDNA3-based products, including the Radeon RX 7000 Series or newer.
HYPR-RX also enables new and upcoming technologies like AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag+ to further enhance your gaming experience. For more information on Radeon Anti-Lag and Anti-Lag+, click on the following link: https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/radeon-software-anti-lag
Gamers running an AMD Ryzen and Radeon based platform can also get added benefits from our AMD Smart Technologies, such as AMD Smart Access Memory™ and AMD SmartShift7. HYPR-RX enables these features as long as they are supported on your system.
Our team of engineers at AMD are dedicated to delivering new technologies and solutions so that you are always getting the best gaming experiences possible on your AMD Radeon™ GPU. We can’t wait to share more details regarding the things to come.
INTRODUCING AMD RADEON™ ANTI-LAG+: RESPONSIVENESS REDEFINED
The AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag feature in AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition can shrink input latency by almost a full frame to help increase responsiveness in your game. Radeon™ Anti-Lag helps minimize input latency by pacing the CPU work and reducing the amount of CPU work in the queue so it doesn’t get too far ahead of the GPU. If this is the first time you’re reading about this feature, we have an in-depth blog post here so you can learn more: https://community.amd.com/t5/gaming/optimize-your-gameplay-with-radeon-software-latency-reducing/ba-...
With our latest AMD Software update, we’re introducing AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag+. Anti-Lag+ takes responsive gaming to the next level by introducing Anti-Lag with specific latency-reducing profiles per-game. In our internal testing, here’s how Anti-Lag+ reduced latency across the following titles:
See endnote RS-581, RS-586, Anti-Lag+ product support is limited to RDNA3-based products, including the Radeon RX 7000 Series or newer.
For users looking to benchmark AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+, we’ve also implemented a new feature, within AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition, in which users can now toggle on/off a latency monitor on titles that support AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+.
To use this feature, users can toggle the overlay with the default hotkey: Alt+Shift+L. To compare the difference between Anti-Lag+ ON vs. OFF, when the overlay is enabled alongside Anti-Lag+, the user can hold the right-Ctrl key or also hold the Delete key to switch Anti-Lag+ OFF and the latency monitor overlay will reflect the respective latency in milliseconds.
What separates Anti-Lag+ from competitors is that it allows users to minimize input lag without requiring SDK integration like other solutions and it interoperates with Radeon Boost and Radeon Super Resolution to deliver further performance enhancements.
NOISE SUPPRESSION UPDATES: INTELLIGENT AUDIO ENHANCEMENT
In 2022, we launched AMD Noise Suppression11 to a strong reception because of how simple and effective it was at separating background noise from your voice.
This year, we are adding the option to choose between CPU and GPU processing for Noise Suppression, so you can shift processing power to better suit your gaming or work experiences. While gaming, AMD recommends selecting CPU-based noise suppression processing to preserve your GPU for graphics rendering without compromise.
