Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) is now available on several more Radeon RX GPUs. The feature brings improved clarity and crispness without having a significant impact on game performance. Specifically, the Radeon RX 570, RX 580, RX 590, RX 470, and RX 480 gained support for RIS.
RIS aims to deliver better-looking gameplay without having a noticeable negative effect on gameplay performance. The feature coming to more budget-friendly cards means that gamers can get better-looking games without having to break the bank.
RIS improves gameplay visuals by adding clarity and crispness to areas of games that have been softened by post-process effects.
RIS works with the latest Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition driver, which can be downloaded from AMD's website. The feature works across DirectX 12 and Vulkan titles on the newly supported cards, meaning developers do not need to implement RIS support into games.
