New and Enhanced Features
AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition provides gamers with a number of new and improved features, including:

Radeon Boost will be supported in numerous top games at launch, with additional titles added over time.

- Integer Display Scaling – Scales on-screen images from one pixel to four or more, giving classic games a retro, pixel-art style look with ultra-crisp scaling options for high-PPI displays without a performance penalty.
- DirectML Media Filters – Visual noise reduction and upscaling filters utilize machine learning to clean up photo and video files, delivering better quality than traditional denoise and upscale filters.
- Radeon Image Sharpening and Radeon Anti-Lag – Radeon Image Sharpening adds support for DirectX 11 games in addition to DX9, DX12, and Vulkan titles, and the feature now allows an adjustment for users to select the degree of sharpness. Radeon Anti-Lag adds support for DX 9 titles on pre-Radeon RX 5000 series graphics cards.
