AMD Radeon Adrenalin 19.7.1 driver comes with new image sharpening and anti-lag features
AMD Radeon users can update their software once again thanks to the Radeon Adrenalin 19.7.1 driver package, a release that comes with a few new features as well. However, not all the supported hardware gets to use the new image sharpening feature, which is only available for the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series. On the other hand, the anti-lag feature should work with a wider range of devices.
According to the release notes, the AMD Radeon Image Sharpening feature "provides contrast-adaptive sharpening combined with optional GPU upscaling that helps draw out detail and provide crisp-looking visuals" and works with DirectX 9, DirectX 12, and Vulkan games. The other noticeable change in the 19.7.1 driver update, namely AMD Radeon Anti-Lag, can be enabled in various DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 titles to can improve the input-to-display response time by up to 31 percent.
AMD Radeon Adrenalin 19.7.1 also comes with improvements to various other components of the whole software package, such as Link, Radeon Chill, and WattMan. As usual, the update fixes a few bugs, including two overlay-related issues, a DLL file signing problem with Easy Anti-Cheat, and more. The driver is only available for the 64-bit releases of the Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating systems.
