AMD users who haven’t been keeping up with red team’s drivers will definitely want to grab today’s Adrenalin Edition 22.3.1 release, as the latest package includes a handful of new features that promise to enhance gaming on Radeon graphics cards with improved performance and more. The most exciting one is probably Radeon Super Resolution (RSR), a new upscaling technology that will live alongside FidelityFX Super Resolution but include the benefit of working with practically all games, having been baked into the Adrenalin driver software. (RSR is exclusive to Radeon RX 5000 Series discrete desktop graphics cards and newer.) AMD’s Adrenalin Edition 22.3.1 also includes updates to AMD Link and Radeon Image Sharpening while offering improvements such as faster downloads and improved toast notifications.

A direct link to the Adrenalin Edition 22.3.1 installation package for Windows 10 and Windows 11 64-bit systems can be found here.

AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.3.1 Highlights (AMD)

Support For

  • Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) Technology – is an in-driver spatial upscaling feature that is built on the same algorithm as AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution technology. It delivers near-native resolution and increased performance across thousands of games that run in exclusive full screen mode on AMD RDNA-based and newer discrete graphics.
  • AMD Link – Updated AMD Link Play feature now allows up to four users to connect to an AMD Radeon graphics-powered PC from an Android- or Windows-based PC, phone, tablet or TV to play local multiplayer games. AMD Link is also introducing customizable hotkeys, allowing gamers to use their devices to control their gaming experience. AMD Link is now accessible from the Microsoft store and can be downloaded as a standalone application on non-AMD based PCs, inviting an even wider range of users and hardware to join a personal gaming cloud.
  • Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Bringing crispness and clarity to in-game visuals that have been softened by upscaling and post-process, the latest version of RIS can now be used to enhance visuals in video playback and other productivity applications with a single click.
  • Faster Downloads – Saves time and reduces the driver download size when updating AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition directly from the application, downloading and installing only the files that need updating on the PC.
  • Improved Toast Notifications – Provides users with a clearer snapshot on which key features are enabled or disabled whenever they launch a game.

Fixed Issues

  • Some users on Windows 10 operating system may observe the absence of the windows transparency aero effect.
  • On some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon RX 6800 XT Graphics, the Tuning page within AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition may display incorrect preset selections after installing the latest AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition driver.
  • While playing Forza Horizon 5 on some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon RX 6800 Graphics, longer than expected load times may be experienced when Ray Tracing is enabled and set at either Medium or High Ray Tracing Quality setting.
  • Visual artifacts may be observed while playing It Takes Two on some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon RX 6900 XT Graphics.
  • Enabling Radeon Chill for SteamVR may lead to inconsistent performances being experienced.
  • After disabling the Hotkeys feature in AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition, some hotkeys still function for some users when they restart their system.

Known Issues

  • Using Radeon Super Resolution on 2560×1600 resolution displays may produce a system hang. A temporary workaround is to set the display Scaling Mode to Full Panel.
  • While playing Cyberpunk 2077 on some AMD Graphics Products such as Radeon RX 570 Graphics, some users may observe an issue where indoor areas appear darker than expected.
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.
  • Radeon performance metrics and logging features may intermittently report extremely high and incorrect memory clock values.

  1. Wow.

    So I am amazed how driver updates seem to work on AMD.

    With the Nvidia GPU's I am used to I would find my max overclock settings when I first bought them, and then those same settings would remain my ideal settings for the life of the GPU, regardless of how many driver updates I installed.

    With my current 6900xt my max overclock settings seem to change violently from driver release to driver release.

    With the initial drivers I installed back when I bought it in October it wouldn't overvolt at all. If you turned the voltage below 1200mv it would almost instantly lock up when loaded up.

    With these drivers I can significantly undervolt it, but it is also running much hotter than it did before the driver update, resulting in core clocks not getting as high as they were before. With these drives, the best I've pushed in TimeSpy thus far has been a graphics score of 22989, when in the last drivers I could hit over 23400.

    Am I really going to ahve to tweak my overclocks and find my sweet spot every single time I upgrade drivers? That's kind of frustrating. It's enough to make me want to go back to Nvidia again.

    Tweaking is part of the game right? Wouldn't you be bored if driver and performance updates didn't do anything for you? I do find it odd that the driver updates are having such a dramatic effect though. So well done on that find. I don't OC (I know blasphemous) but appreciate you hammering at it for the good of us all!

    My days of overclocking for bragging rights of the highest number are long since over.

    Don't get me wrong, once done, I'll still share the number for fun, but that's not why I do it. I overclock because I need the performance.

    The cycle of tweaking settings, stability testing, tweaking settings, stability testing, etc. etc. is quite frankly tedious as all hell. If I have to do it every time there is a new driver, I'm going to be frustrated as all hell. I already don't have enough time for my computer hobby as it is. To add several hours of tweaking every single time there is a driver update will be a massive pain, even without the performance regressions I have seen.
  4. Try to run almost any new title at 4k and get minimum acceptable framerates?
    Oh you said need I thought you meant like for work or compiling something or another. Hence my confusion. :)

    Ah yes. That is fair.

    While I do use this machine for work, my work doesn't really tax the GPU at all. All of my work is essentially just basic desktop output type of stuff.

    The GPU is only there for the occasional game. Is it a need? No. Games are just for a temporary distraction.

    But if I can't get the GPU to support acceptable framerates, then it has no reason for existing at all :p
