The HYPR-X is related to graphics cards from AMD. It will be available in the first half of 2023. The idea is to offer the user a simple and quick way to boost performance.
Strictly speaking, this isn’t new since the HYPR-X was unveiled last month during the presentation of the Radeon RX 7900 series. Its goal is to offer one-click performance improvement. It combines three different technologies namely Radeon Super Resolution, Radeon Boost and Radeon Anti-Lag.
All of these features are available individually through AMD Software and are supported by a wide range of GPUs. The HYPR-X will appear alongside other preset profiles in the Graphics tab of the AMD Software driver.
In view of the different technologies implemented, the improvement in performance will be based on
- Lower system latency
- a dynamic scaling of the definition,
- and the exploitation of RSR (spatial upscaler).
The RSR uses the FSR 1.0 which suffers from poorer image quality than that offered by the FSR 2.0. However, we have an action at the driver level and not at the game level. As a result, AMD offers a more universal approach capable of working with many titles.
According to the first information proposed by AMD, the activation of HYPR-X under Dying Light 2 increases the framerate by 85% (90 to 166 FPS) while lowering the latency from 30 ms to 11 ms. The tests were conducted with a Ryzen 9 7900X and DDR5-5200 at 1080p with graphics options on high.
AMD confirms that HYPR-X will be available in the first half of 2023 without specifying when exactly.
