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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
