Fully compatible with a wide range of graphics adapters, the AMD Radeon Adrenalin Edition 19.7.1 driver comes with a new image sharpening feature (on AMD Radeon RX 5700 hardware in DirectX 9, DirectX 12, and Vulkan titles) and anti-lag for DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 games, which improves input-to-display response time by up to 31 percent.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
