As part of its focus on the software side of things, AMD will release a new feature to boost gaming performance by up to 85% on Radeon GPUs. Hypr-RX will be a one-click solution to unleash extra performance on all Radeon graphics cards, courtesy of its open-source suite of technologies. In addition to frame rates, it’ll also improve latency, cutting it by a third in games like Dying Light 2:
Official AMD slides show an uplift of 85% in Techland’s latest zombie-survival thriller. Unfortunately, Hypr-RX doesn’t bring anything new to the table and is a blend of existing FidelityFX technologies. It combines Radeon Super Resolution (FSR 1.0), Radeon Boost, and Radeon Anti-Lag to extract additional performance from the GPU at the expense of image quality.
Radeon Super Resolution is a driver-level implementation of FSR 1.0 and suffers from visual artifacts when dealing with transparent textures. Radeon Boost AMD Radeon Boost dynamically lowers the in-game resolution when fast on-screen character motion is detected via user input, offering a steady uplift in performance. In games supporting DirectX12, Variable Rate Shading (VRS) is added to further enhance frame rates.
Anti-Lag is AMD’s version of NVIDIA Reflex and reduces the in-game latency to improve your chances of winning in high-speed shooters like Call of Duty, Fortnite, and PUBG.
