AMD Fluid Motion Frames Released, Together with Several Improvements, Here’s How To Use AFMF

AMD has been teasing us with its version of frame generation technology since last year. Finally, AMD has an answer to NVIDIA’s DLSS 3. The company recently released its driver Software 24.1.1 and Fluid Motion Frames, along with several improvements. Fluid Motion Frames, or AFMF, is the marketing term for AMD’s frame generation. So, it looks like NVIDIA is not the only one who is into making “fake frames” now. Jokes aside, AMD’s FMF implementation is quite different despite trying to achieve the same result. While NVIDIA opted for a hardware-based implementation (limited to RTX 40 series only), AMD’s FMF is on the driver level. It will also work with the current RX 7000 series and previous RX 6000 series GPUs. It even works with APUs like Ryzen 7 8700G. AMD shared the news via its community blog post; more details are below.

To apply AFMF globally, just activate HYPR-RX in the Home Tab when opening AMD Software for a straightforward, one-click solution. For those seeking personalized adjustments for each game, locate the feature in the Gaming Tab under the Games section. Here, you can apply AFMF individually, ensuring increased frame rates and smoother gameplay across different titles.

Improved Video Enhancements and Optimizations

Users can now access enhanced video features in the updated 24.1.1 version of AMD Software. Simply toggle the switch in the Graphics tab to experience improved video sharpness and clarity. This improvement applies to applications like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Media Player, offering support for resolutions up to 4k. Users will notice better fidelity and clarity, especially in lower-quality videos. It’s important to note that this feature currently functions only for single display configurations.

How To Enable AMD’s Video Upscale Feature?

To activate this feature, open AMD Software and go to the Graphics Settings tab. Locate and switch ON the Video Upscale feature. Once activated, users can adjust the level of detail enhancement using the dedicated control slider to achieve the optimal setting based on the media content.

For users on supported laptops running on battery, navigate to the “Video Playback” tab in Windows settings and select the “Optimize for video quality” setting to enhance support further.

Note that browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge require an additional step to enable the feature for video playback (e.g., on YouTube). Type “edge://flags” or “chrome://flags” into the address bar, locate “Media Foundation for Clear,” and change its state from Default to Enabled.

AMD Assistant

In the recent AMD Software driver update, a new feature called AMD Assistant has been introduced. AMD Assistant monitors your system and automatically adjusts AMD Software features to optimize your gaming experience. For instance, if a game’s FPS drops below 60, AMD Assistant will automatically enable features like HYPR-RX during subsequent launches of the same game to improve frame rates for a better gaming experience.
