AMD brings its powerful Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) feature to the Radeon RX 570, RX 580 and RX 590, as well as RX 470, and RX 480 graphics cards. With the latest Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition driver, mainstream Radeon gamers can now enjoy the same stunning, ultra-crisp visuals the Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs provide in a wide range of AAA, eSports and indie games.
RIS is an intelligent contrast-adaptive sharpening algorithm that brings crispness and clarity to in-game visuals that have been softened by other post-process effects, with virtually no impact on gaming performance. When paired with Radeon GPU upscaling, RIS enables sharp visuals and fluid frame rates on very high-resolution displays.
RIS works across DirectX 12 and Vulkan titles on the Radeon RX 570, RX 580, RX 590, RX 470, and RX 480 graphics cards and is enabled in Radeon Software, so game developers do not need to implement support for RIS into the games themselves.
AMD continues to democratize access to cutting-edge technology. From first time mainstream gamers to those looking for the best experiences in AAA 1080p gaming, the Radeon RX 500 and 400 series GPUs that now offer RIS allow gamers to immerse themselves in hyper-real, complex visual worlds while maintaining fluid framerates.
