AMD Brings Frame Generation “AFMF” to All Games on All Radeon GPUs: 2x Performance for All

AMD has added Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) to its preview driver, allowing the use of frame generation on all Radeon graphics cards across all DX11 and DX12 games. All you need to do is enable HYPR-RX or the AMD Fluid Motion toggle in the Adrenalin control panel. Before you do that on an AMD GPU, be sure to install the Adrenalin Edition Technical Preview Driver v23.30.01.02. Since this is a preview driver some bugs are expected.

AMD’s Fluid Motion Frame technology isn’t the same as FSR 3. The latter utilizes motion vectors and other temporal inputs provided by the game engine while AFMF solely relies on driver-level info such as pixel and voxel data. A big positive for Team Radeon is that NVIDIA limits DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” to its RTX 40 series GPUs” while AMD’s AFMF is available on pretty much every Radeon GPU.

The latest AMD Preview driver adds initial support for HDR with AFMF while also fixing some of the frame pacing issues reported by users on the older drivers. The driver notes claim a smoother gameplay experience, as well as better image quality.

Newer titles such as Starfield should see a more nuanced impact on image quality with AFMF enabled. That said, don’t expect any miracles from a driver-level frame-generation technology just yet.
