Yesterday we reported that AMD Radeon Graphics’s annual pressure shaft benefit driver may be named “Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition” and added the Radeon Boost Smart Frame Stakes Enhancement feature. Careful netizens found that in a footnote on AMD’s official website, not only “Radeon Boost” was reaffirmed, but also “Integer Scaling” (deleted before the cut- was).
The so-called integer scaling, simply put, is in some pixel-level games, especially in the simulator running the old game, will pass the closest pixel multiplication model, so that even at high resolution can still maintain a clear picture, sharp image edge. Traditional bilinear scaling changes the color data of the multiplier pixels, causing the picture to blur.
NVIDIA first started supporting integer scaling in the 436.02 driver released at the end of August, although Turing architecture graphics only, Intel core graphics cards were subsequently added, but only 10nm Ice Lake Ten Core. Theoretically, integer scaling requires hardware-accelerated programmable scaling filter support, the old card should be no, but in the footnote AMD stressed that the DX11/DX12/Vulkan environment, the first 8 years ago in the GCN 7000 series graphics card can also be supported, the RX 5000 series can be lower to the DX9 environment.
As for the Radeon Boost, the RX 400 Series graphics card or Ryzen APU is required to support it.
Unsurprisingly, the annual driver will be released in mid-to-late December.
