AMD Delivers Radeon Image Sharpening To Vega Owners With Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.9.3

Keith May

Radeon Image Sharpening was introduced along with the launch of the Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards as a way to help improve image fidelity by increasing the sharpness of an image through a one-click solution. But, at launch, it was limited to the Radeon RX 5700 series of graphics cards but only with DX9, DX12, and Vulkan titles launching in Windows 10. Earlier this month with Radeon Adrenalin 19.9.2 AMD expanded support to include the Radeon RX 470, RX 570, RX 480, RX 580, and RX 590 as well, but only with DX12 and Vulkan support, with DX9 being left out on this one, as we as requiring Windows 10. But today, Vega gets some sharp loving with Radeon Adrenalin 19.9.3. In the notes, AMD states this support is for Radeon VII, RX Vega 56/64, and Frontier Edition but doesn't seem to include Vega 8 and Vega 11. I know what you might be thinking, who cares about those low-level chips? Well, Vega 8 and Vega 11 could really benefit from something like this as they're often run at much lower resolutions. Now AMD, how about that Integer Scaling? I know it was HIGH on the list of things on your questionnaire that went out some time ago.

We’ve included the official driver release notes as well as known issues below:
