AMD reveals details on HYPR-RX feature to accelerate Radeon graphics cards

AMD HYPR-RX is a new graphics driver feature for Radeon graphics cards that will be included in the first half of 2023. AMD showed the technology as part of the announcement of the Radeon RX 7900 series graphics accelerators. Today the company decided to talk about it in more detail.

With the AMD HYPR-RX feature, you can boost performance and reduce latency in games with the click of a button by enabling Radeon Super Resolution, Radeon Boost, and Radeon Anti-Lag technologies. All three are already available separately as part of the Radeon graphics driver and are supported by a wide range of graphics card models. HYPR-RX becomes part of the Graphics tab of the Radeon Software application and provides multiple options for configuring the activation of specific features. The user can independently choose which ones are most suitable for a particular game.

Remember that the Radeon Anti-Lag feature is designed to reduce system latency, Radeon Boost allows you to enable support for dynamic resolution scaling, and Radeon Super Resolution (RSR), in turn, includes support for spatial image scaling , which improves game performance.

Not in all cases the use of RSR is considered optimal. For example, some games are better off using FSR 2.0 scaling technology (if supported by the game) because FSR 2.0 causes less image quality degradation when scaling. However, RSR, which is based on FSR 1.0 algorithms, has the advantage of working at the driver level, eliminating the need for manual changes to game settings. In other words, AMD HYPR-RX is a slightly more versatile solution that is supported by many games out of the box.

As an example of how HYPR-RX works, AMD cited Dying Light 2, where this feature increased the frame rate from 90 to 166, which is an 85% increase in performance. Tested on a system with Ryzen 9 7900X processor and DDR5-5200 RAM with 1080p in-game resolution and high graphics settings. Thanks to the RSR technology in the HYPR-RX, the game’s output resolution has been increased to 1440p. At the same time, the game lag has decreased from 30 to 11 ms.
