AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 23.9.2 WHQL Driver released, For The Crew Motorfest, Lies of P, and Party Animals

AMD’s latest graphics driver offers some nice improvements for gamers. The new Radeon Software Adrenalin 23.9.2 WHQL driver provides optimal performance boosts in hot new titles like Lies of P, Party Animals, and The Crew Motorfest.

Gamers will also appreciate AMD’s new Anti-Lag+ technology that reduces input lag in games like Starfield, Witcher 3, ELDEN RING, and Immortal of Aveum. Anti-Lag+ can decrease latency by up to 45% compared to having the feature disabled, giving you a smoother, more responsive feel in these supported games. An on-screen overlay lets you monitor the latency reduction in action.

In addition to gaming enhancements, AMD has squashed some pesky bugs. The new driver resolves crashes that could happen in Baldur’s Gate 3 with Vulkan, as well as timeouts in SMITE. There are also fixes for intermittent crashes in F1 23.

You can grab the latest driver yourself from AMD’s website. Keep in mind that Polaris and Vega owners will need to get a different driver package from here. The full changelog below has all the nitty gritty details.

Overall, this release brings welcome improvements on both the performance and stability front. AMD continues to refine their software to provide a better experience for Radeon gamers.
