AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.1 driver adds official support for Image Sharpening & Anti-Lag

AMD has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.1 driver adds official support for both Image Sharpening and Anti-Lag.

Going into more details, Image Sharpening can be enabled for DirectX 9, DirectX 12 and Vulkan games on AMD Radeon RX 5700 series graphics and provides contrast-adaptive sharpening combined with optional GPU upscaling that helps draw out detail and provide crisp-looking visuals.

On the other hand, Anti-Lag is compatible with AMD Radeon GCN-based discrete graphics and newer, can be enabled for DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 games and improves input-to-display response time with up to 31% reduction in lag.

It’s also worth noting that this new driver adds an Automatic Low Latency Mode, allowing supported graphics products to communicate with your connected TV and enter low-latency (gaming) mode automatically, as well as Settings Snapshot which is a new feature that allows you to create, save and load your custom settings and configurations for Radeon Settings.
