    Enhanced image quality for 1080p media content scaled to 4K using adaptive directional filtering technology
    Extrapolating extra "detail" that was not there, rather then using 1:4 direct pixel mapping? Sounds like a way to reduce IQ....

    Other then that, looks a good list.

    Using pixel resize filter is a poor thing to use when scaling upwards (or downwards for that matter) as the pixels themselves become visible (won't they? my resize filter knowledge is a lil rusty); bilinear is fast, bicubic prettier, lanczos is/was best. more than likely this means that they have put in better shader support for whatever "adaptive directional" filter is (time based lanczos?) which means gorgeous intrapolation with little to no drop in speed :-)
    I'll be installing this tonight!

    What's "Frame Rate Target Control"? Doe let you set a frame rate target and the driver will turn features on and off on the fly to enable you to meet the target?

    Re: AMD releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition, download now

    I might give this a try on my main machine at home.

    My daughters? Nope, her 5800 APU and the old 6770 GPU plugged into it are now "legacy support". My E350 netbook, now legacy. The simultaneous release on Linux has reduced my A8-3870 and A8-6500 APU based machines to legacy (which in Linux terms means open source driver had better work or just chunk them in the bin).

    Edit to add: The E350 being legacy wouldn't bother me so much if there was a new machine worth buying for a replacement.

    It's a limit that you set to tell the gpu to never go above.. the real world example is if you have a 60hz monitor and a gcard that plays games at 120fps, that's all wasted potential that you can framelimit to 60hz which in turns lowers the workload on the gpu and makes you use less power and resources. Most games have a fps limiter as well, this one enforces it via drivers.

    Mainly you just set it to the maximum refresh rate of your monitor and that's it :-) it doesn't do much if you use a 120/144hz monitor and aim to get near that fps anyways.

    I have always found direct pixel-mapping to be far superior to any extrapolation.

    Isn't that what vSync does?

    But you can also extrapolate by adding in information from the previous frame.

    No. This allows for non-synced refresh (no waiting for complete frame sync), but caps the number of refreshes to whatever arbitrary value you like.

    In practise it means you get the low-input latency of non-synced refresh without having to worry about odd effects caused by going high on frame rates, for eg coil whine on menus or in some cases animation/timing issues causing stuttering.

    And 59 FPS ends up being 59 FPS, not 30

    It really depends on what you are watching and how big the scaling is. Bilinear is what tvs use for old composite i think and is terrible as it blurs everything. bicubic, lanczos and temporal based filters are much better as they maintain sharpness whilst extrapolating data to fill in the gaps. pure direct pixel-mapping makes it look the same as the lower resolution so i guess you could call it true to the original (it looks the same on a 27" at 1080p as it does on 4k on same size), it only really matters if you are blowing it up to a larger screen (27"1080p to 50"4k won't be as good).

    When resizing my art i always go for the highest quality filter i can get, but i guess for games/movies from 1080pto4k is a different kettle of fish ^_^

    It's quick, the beta works with my old system and 6870. I like the interface too.
