AMD Expands Software Features, Smart Technologies
AMD said it’s updating its software suite for Radeon graphics with new features that will bring driver-based spatial upscaling to thousands of games.
The new feature, called Radeon Super Resolution, is powered by AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution technology, and it uses upscaling techniques to improve game performance at near-native resolutions.
Other new features in the AMD Software release includes a new version of AMD Link, which lets users play PC games on other devices from anywhere, and AMD Privacy View technology, which uses head- and eye-tracking technology from Eyeware to “deliver increased levels of privacy.”
AMD said it’s also expanding the capabilities of its “smart technologies,” with the Ryzen 6000 series now able to use the company’s Smart Access Memory technology. The company has also enhanced AMD SmartShift, now known as AMD SmartShift Max, to support a broader range of games and double performance across select titles when pairing certain Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs.
The chipmaker introduced a new technology called SmartShift Eco that it said can double gaming time on a laptop’s battery when using a system that has a Radeon RX 6850M XT GPU and an AMD Ryzen 6900H Series CPU. The company said another technology, called Smart Access Graphics, can provide a 15 percent performance boost.
