Today, AMD rolled out Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) support for Radeon VII, RX Vega 64, RX Vega 56 and Vega Frontier Edition graphics cards with the Radeon Adrenalin Software 19.9.3 driver, bringing AMD’s popular image sharpening technology to scores of additional Radeon gamers.

RIS delivers new levels of crispness and clarity to in-game visuals that have been softened by upscaling and post-process effects. When paired with Radeon GPU upscaling, RIS enables sharp visuals and fluid frame rates for DX12 and Vulkan titles on very high-resolution displays – with virtually no impact on gaming performance.

Support for AMD Vega GPUs follows the recent announcement of support for RIS on Radeon RX 470, RX 480, RX 570, RX 580, and RX 590 graphics cards (in addition to support for Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics). As RIS is enabled in Radeon Software, game developers do not need to implement support for RIS into the games themselves. Rather, gamers need only flip a switch and enjoy.
