AMD Fluid Motion Frames gets fourth update
Just a reminder, the current implementation of AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) isn’t yet integrated into an official driver branch. AMD is actively refining this technology to ensure it delivers an improved gaming experience upon its official release. However, feedback thus far has been positive, and the latest preview driver has further enhanced this support.
The most crucial update is that AFMF can now be globally enabled for all DirectX11 and DirectX12 games. It’s no longer limited to a select list of games, as was previously communicated by AMD. This means a significant increase in Frame Generation support and marks a milestone. Notably, AMD’s Frame Generation technology now enjoys broader game support than NVIDIA DLSS3. Furthermore, it also means that more Radeon GPUs support the technology compared to all GeForce RTX 40 models, as NVIDIA has restricted the feature for older GPUs.
Users have confirmed that the “improvement to frame pacing” has indeed resulted in much smoother gameplay. The issues of lag and higher frame times were among the most frequently cited problems with AFMF in the past, but AMD has made substantial progress in addressing these concerns.
There is now also support for HDR once AFMF is engaged, so AMD is clearly ticking all the boxes before AFMF makes its way to the official driver branch, which is hopefully not far away.
October 13th – What’s New?
- We have added initial support for HDR to expand the AFMF gaming experience.
- After monitoring user experience feedback, AFMF can now be globally enabled on all DirectX® 11 and 12 titles.
- Users may use the per-app settings to individually disable or enable AFMF.
- Improvements to frame pacing have been made, resulting in an overall smoother gameplay experience and improved image quality.
- Additional game support for AMD Radeon™️ Anti-Lag+
- MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
- Deep Rock Galactic
- Warhammer 40,000: Darktide
- Sniper Elite 5
- Remnant II
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales
- Spider-Man Remastered
- PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS
- Call of Duty ®: Modern Warfare ® II
- Tiny Tina’s Wonderland
- Hogwarts Legacy
- Resident Evil 3
The list mentions updated support for Anti-Lag+, but it is important to mention that the technology has some major issues for online games. It is highly recommended not to use this technology unless it is clearly part of the official driver branch and has been confirmed by game developer to be supported. Like we saw in an example from Counter Strike 2, even official mention from AMD does not guarantee full support and in some cases it may result in a ban.
