AMD has announced the release of the Adrenalin Edition 2022 and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0.
The new Adrenalin Edition 2022 now features AMD Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) technology to deliver increased performance with high-quality visuals, an updated AMD Link application that allows users to turn their gaming PC into a personal gaming cloud and host local multiplayer games with friends connecting from almost anywhere, as well as AMD Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) to enhance visuals for video playback, and web applications apart from games.
Adrenalin Edition now includes a number of new and upgraded capabilities, including:
AMD Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) Technology – RSR is an in-driver spatial upscaling feature that is built on the same algorithm as AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution technology. It delivers near-native resolution and increased performance in games that run in exclusive full-screen mode on AMD RDNA architecture-based discrete graphics, and is compatible with thousands of games.
AMD Link – Updated AMD Link Play feature now allows up to four users to connect to an AMD Radeon graphics-powered PC from an Android- or Windows-based PC, phone, tablet, or TV to play local multiplayer games. The application is also introducing customizable hotkeys, allowing gamers to use their device as a secondary controller for their PC. AMD Link is now accessible from the Microsoft store and can be downloaded as a standalone application on non-AMD-based PCs, inviting an even wider range of users and hardware to join a personal gaming cloud.
Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Bringing crispness and clarity to in-game visuals that have been softened by upscaling and post-process effects, the latest version of RIS can now be used to enhance visuals in video playback and other productivity applications with a single click.
Fast Downloads – Save time and reduce the driver download size when updating AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition directly from the application, downloading and installing only the files that need updating on the PC.
Improved Toast Notifications – Provides users with a clearer snapshot on which key features are enabled or disabled whenever they launch a game.
Meanwhile, AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 uses temporal data and optimized anti-aliasing to boost framerates in supported games while delivering similar or better image quality than native resolution without requiring dedicated machine learning hardware. AMD revealed that one of the first titles to support the technology is Arkane Studios' Deathloop.
AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition is now available can be downloaded from the AMD Drivers and Support page while AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 is expected to be available in Q2 2022.
