AMD releases the first video card driver with the Radeon Super Resolution feature. In addition, the American chip designer uses this major driver release to rename Radeon Software to AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition.
Radeon Super Resolution was announced in early January as a variant of the existing spatial upscaling technique FidelityFX Super Resolution. Unlike FSR, RSR works in almost every game, because it does not need to be integrated into a game, but works at driver level.
The compatibility with games from RSR is therefore better, but that with hardware is more limited. Where FSR works on almost any somewhat modern video card, in theory even on GPUs from competitor Nvidia, RSR requires a video card from the Radeon RX 5000 series or newer.
AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.3.1, as the driver is called in full, also brings new functions in other areas. For example, you can now connect the local game streaming service AMD Link on up to four devices to one PC at the same time, so you can play games with local multiplayer against each other. In addition, the driver includes a new version of Radeon Image Sharpening, which you can use not only for games, but also for sharpening when playing videos or even regular Windows programs.
Radeon gamers will also notice that the notification when starting a game now displays information about which driver functions are activated or not. In addition, the driver should be faster to install if you have a slow internet connection, because the updater only downloads the files that actually need to be updated.
The new driver is here can be downloaded separately, but from now on will of course also be distributed via the built-in updater of existing driver installations.
