New AMD Radeon GPU driver download reduces lag

Latest AMD graphics card driver update 23.9.1 introduces new features for Radeon RX 7000 GPUs, including anti-lag and image quality boosting.

AMD Radeon driver download update 23.9.1: an RX 7800 XT appears against a red background with a lightning bolt above it.

You can now access the latest AMD Radeon driver download, which brings several cool, new features for the latest AMD GPUs, such as the Radeon RX 7900 XT. The primary one, AMD Anti-Lag+, is designed to reduce input lag for RDNA 3 GPUs in certain games.

It improves on team red’s existing anti-lag software, which stops the CPU getting too far ahead of the GPU, by ‘applying frame alignment within the game code itself’. At the moment, this new tech is limited to just 12 titles, such as Apex Legends, Overwatch 2, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. However, AMD promises to expand Anti-Lag+ support to more games through updates set to arrive ‘in the coming months.’ 

Driver update 23.9.1 also introduces a feature called AMD Radeon Boost, which supports Anti-Lag+ by reducing the impact of dynamic resolution switching seen with high-DPI mice, for Resident Evil 4 Remake and Ghostwire: Tokyo.

The final feature on the menu is AMD HYPR-RX, which AMD describes as a new ‘driver experience. It lets you optimize your games on RDNA 3 GPUs to increase performance and decrease latency. All in all, it looks to be a promising update if you’re not a fan of latency. And who is?

New feature highlights

  • AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+ – Takes responsive gaming to the next level by introducing per-game profiling to intelligently pace frames further reducing input lag on RDNA 3-based Radeon GPUs. 
  • AMD Radeon Boost – Now supports AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+ and improves image quality through awareness of mouse sensitivity, reducing the image quality impact of dynamic resolution switching during motion that’s typically seen with high-DPI mice.
  • AMD HYPR-RX – Allows users to optimize their games using AMD Software features for their RDNA 3-based Radeon GPUs, achieving increased performance and lower latency with ease.
  • AMD Adrenalin Edition 23.9.1 – Introduces the ability to intelligently combine AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+, Boost, and Radeon Super Resolution to achieve improved performance and latency reduction than these features can achieve on their own.

What’s next?

  • AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+ – Initially supports 12 games, but new game support for AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+ will be released through AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition updates in the coming months. 
  • AMD HYPR-RX – The HYPR-RX experience will continue to grow, including support for AMD Fluid Motion Frames to boost FPS using frame generation for DirectX 11 and 12 games in Q1 2024.

Fixed issues

  • Error message may be observed when selecting Spatial sound format of ‘Dolby Atmos for home theatre.’
