A Deeper Look into System Lag
AMD’s latest introduction, the “System Lag” feature, monitors PC latency in games compatible with Anti-Lag+ technology. This serves a similar purpose as NVIDIA‘s PC Latency feature but is restricted to AMD’s RDNA 3 GPUs, like the Radeon RX 7000 series. CapFrameX tests revealed similar latency levels between NVIDIA‘s PC Latency and AMD’s System Lag, emphasizing the reliability and functionality of both tools. Alongside System Lag, AMD’s new driver paves the way for Fluid Motion Frames, aspiring to optimize video playback.
The Rise of Ryzen 7000 “Phoenix” APUs
A buzz surrounds AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 “Phoenix” APUs, tailored for the AM5 platform. Based on the emerging details, these next-generation APUs might harness the potency of the Zen 4 and Zen 4C hybrid architecture. If this hybrid Phoenix core configuration truly finds its way into desktop AM5 platforms, it signifies a captivating turn for AMD. Especially, with these chips promising up to 8 Zen 4 CPU cores and 12 RDNA 3 compute units.
Fluid Motion Frames: Now for a Broader Audience
Originally an exclusive for the latest RDNA 3 “Radeon RX 7000” GPUs, the Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) technology is now accessible to the RDNA 2 “Radeon RX 6000” GPU users. This expansion enhances frames per second in games, crafting a seamless gaming encounter.
However, for an optimal experience, integrating this feature with AMD Radeon Anti-Lag/Anti-Lag+ is advisable. Users should also be aware of some known glitches, though AMD is actively addressing these concerns.
AMD’s forward march in the gaming sphere manifests through its constant innovations and upgrades. These novelties, though promising, will undergo the true test when embraced by the larger gaming community. The harmony between performance efficiency and computational power seems to be AMD’s current melody. Gamers worldwide eagerly await the crescendo.
