New features come to Radeon with the company's latest 19.7.1 driver

AMD has officially launched their Radeon Software Adrenalin 19.7.1 driver, bringing with it support for Navi alongside a boatload of other upgrades, the first of which is Navi exclusive. 

Users of AMD's Navi RX 5700 series graphics cards will be able to utilise Radeon Image Sharpening, which is available in DirectX 11, DirectX 9 and Vulkan compatible games, enabling contrast-adaptive sharpening in conjunction with optional CPU upscaling to draw out extra detail in games. 

Next up, we have Radeon anti-lag, which is a feature which is designed to reduce input lag and make PC games more responsive. This feature is targetted at esports games and can be enabled in DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 titles. 

AMD Link support has also been updated to support Android TV and Apple TV, making game streaming a lot simpler. Connectivity has also been improved thanks to a new auto-discovery mode. 

Users of HDMI 2.1 compliant screens will also be able to utilise Automatic Low Latency mode, which communicates with your display to automatically enable low latency gaming modes.
