AMD’s latest driver adds Anti-Lag+ to Counter Strike 2 and is optimised for the latest releases

AMD brings Anti-Lag+ to Counter Strike 2, and more, with new GPU drivers

AMD has released their new 23.10.1 GPU driver update for Windows PCs. This new update from AMD adds Anti-Lag+ support to Counter Strike 2. It also adds game-specific optimisations to both Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, and Lords of the Fallen.

When we wrote our original PC performance review and optimisation guide for Assassin’s Creed Mirage, we noted that AMD GPU performance was lower than we expected. This new AMD Software release should address this. We hope to retest Assassin’s Creed Mirage soon with the latest driver updates from AMD and Nvidia, as Nvidia has also boosted this game’s performance with new updates.

With their new 23.10.1 driver, AMD has also added several new bug fixes. This includes a stuttering fix for Counter Strike 2, fixes for EA Sports FC 24, and app crashes in Starfield for RX 7000 series GPUs.

AMD Anti-Lag+ in Counter Strike 2

Counter Strike 2 is an incredibly popular online FPS title, and minimising lag is one way that gamers can give themselves a competitive edge. With Anti-Lag+, AMD GPU users can now lower this game’s input latency to make the game feel more responsive, and to reduce the time it takes for player actions to impact gameplay.

AMD’s Anti-Lag+ technology is designed to give PC gamers the best possible gaming experience in Counter Strike 2.

GPU support

AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 23.10.1 supports graphics cards as far back as AMD’s Polaris-based RX 400 series GPUs. However, AMD has released their 23.10.1 driver in two forms. One version only supports RDNA-based Radeon GPUs. The other supports RDNA, Vega, and Polaris series GPUs.
