AMD has released the latest Adrenalin 2020 Edition software that introduces a new look, more features, and game optimizations.
AMD has ditched its old Radeon Adrenalin design for something more robust and easy to navigate through. The new design now features a Home screen that displays a lot of information such as the games installed on your computer, your total hours spent, and average FPS on these games. Users may also press ALT + R to bring up the Adrenalin software into the screen without needing to tab out or exit the game entirely.
For people who love playing retro and 8-bit games, AMD included a Display Scaling feature to their latest software. Display Scaling allows 1 pixel to be scaled into four or more pixels to give games a crisper, less blurry look without sacrificing performance.
AMD’s latest driver software also features Radeon Boost, which dynamically reduces the game’s resolution in fast-paced games. The Adrenalin software recognizes fast mouse movements from your mouse to give an average 23% boost in framerate.
The latest Adrenalin 2020 Software also improved other features such as:
- AMD Link – Allows users to stream games onto their mobile devices.
- DirectML Media Filters – Uses machine learning to clean up photo and video files, reducing visual noise and better upscaling filters.
- Radeon Image Sharpening – Added support for Direct X 11 games, and added adjustments to allow users to select how sharp they want their games to look.
- Radeon Anti-Lag – Similar to NVIDIA’s multi-frame buffer, Radeon Anti-Lag reduces the amount of pre-rendered frames to reduce input lag from your input devices.
AMD also claims that the latest driver update includes optimizations that boost game performance by an average of 12% across multiple titles. Don’t expect to get a huge FPS bump in older titles, though, as most games released after the Adrenalin 2019 Edition have shown the biggest improvements.
