AMD has provided more information about its new HYPR-RX technology due in 2023 . HYPR-RX is AMD’s one-click solution, covering various technologies for an all-in-one solution. It is a possible competitor to AMD’s NVIDIA Image Sharpening , DSR , and Reflex offerings .
HYPR-RX will combine AMD RSR (Radeon Super Resolution), Radeon Boost and Radeon Anti-lag . RSR basically upscales the game to a higher resolution after applying all the post-processing effects. This is slightly different from FSR in the sense that FSR fires much sooner. It is possible to enable RSR without changing in-game settings as it is a driver-level implementation emphasizing that RSR can be easily implemented.
Radeon Boost is also an interesting technology that renders the game at a lower resolution based on mouse movement. There have been instances of flickering although AMD is making improvements. Similarly, Radeon Anti-Lag slows down your CPU if the GPU can’t keep up. This reduces input lag, thereby improving responsiveness.
How to turn it on
AMD HYPR-RX can be enabled at startup using the AMD Adrenalin software . Basically, it will be a one-click button to boost FPS and reduce input lag in supported games. It is not known how easy the implementation will be, though AMD will make sure to support the latest games when HYPR-RX launches.
Performance and release date
In Dying Light 2 , HYPR-RX reduces input lag by almost 3x . At native 1080p, the average FPS is 90fps , which increases to 166fps when HYPR-RX is enabled. The fact that AMD has used medium frames speaks for itself. In terms of specs, AMD opted for a Ryzen 9 7900X processor paired with DDR5-5200 memory . The output image was 1440p , possibly due to RSR being part of HYPR-RX.
AMD HYPR-RX is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2023 , with no actual release date given.
