AMD Anti-Lag+ returns

Translate from : AMD Anti-Lag+ vender tilbage
AMD's Anti-Lag+ technology will soon return in an even better state, confirmed Frank Azor, Principal Architect of Gaming at AMD. This technology reduces input lag and improves system latency in games. Support for Anti-Lag+ continues in the games that support it.

AMD's advanced Anti-Lag+ technology, which is known to improve the gaming experience by reducing input lag and improving system latency, is returning in an improved version. This has been confirmed by Frank Azor, who is the Chief Architect of Gaming at AMD. AMD's Anti-Lag+ technology was originally designed to be the red team's answer to NVIDIA's Reflex, both aiming to reduce input lag and improve system latency.

These technologies are essential when running games with image generation technologies such as AMD FSR 3 and NVIDIA DLSS 3. AMD's solution should have been a step up as it could not only be enabled within supported games but also enabled through drivers with a simple toggle as part of AMD's HYPR-RX suite.

Tests have shown in some places that Anti-Lag+ worked great with the launch of FSR 3 titles like Forspoken and Immortals of Aveum. However, this driver toggle quickly backfired on AMD as it led to players being banned from several online games including Call of Duty: Warzone, Counter-Strike 2, Overwatch 2, etc. The main problem was that toggling the Anti-Lag+ through the driver of a specific game led to modification of the game files, which were detected as "cheats" by game-specific anti-cheat technology.

Configuring AMD Anti-Lag+

The widespread bans resulted in several developers and publishers asking players to avoid Anti-Lag+ in their games. AMD also chose to remove the Anti-Lag+ driver from their website and later issue a new driver that rolled back Anti-Lag+ support.

This meant that the promised driver-side Anti-Lag+ was rolled back, and it's now almost 4 months since we saw the technology in action.

But AMD now confirms that Anti-Lag+ is coming back and will be in a much better state than before. Support for AMD's Anti-Lag+ technology is still available in the games that support it. AMD has worked with these developers to add Anti-Lag+ support, and it doesn't require a driver-side toggle for activation. Currently, AMD has the following Anti-Lag+ supported games:

  • Apex Legends
  • Overwatch 2
  • Dying Light 2
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Resident Evil 4
  • Ghostwire: Tokyo
  • Fortnite
  • Last of Us: Part 1
  • Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
  • Resident Evil 3
  • Borderlands 3

The list may seem smaller than the previous one because all online games were removed due to player bans. We may see them added again when AMD rolls out the newer version that works better with online titles. The technology will still be supported by the newer RDNA 3 GPUs (Radeon RX 7000), while the rest of the GPUs will support the standard Anti-Lag technology. In addition to this, a few new and upcoming FSR 3 titles were also confirmed by AMD which include:

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  • Farming Simulator 22
  • House Pinball 2
  • Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
  • Mortal Online 2
  • MotorCubs RC
  • Nightingale
  • Starfield (beta update)
  • Starship Troopers: Extermination
  • The Thaumaturge
  • The Talos Principle 2
