AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 Now in Counter-Strike 2 integration

AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2

AMD Radeon Anti-Lag, an in-driver technology, reduces click-to-response latency for faster gaming in 2019. It has since become one of AMD’s most popular software capabilities. A more recent iteration of this technology, Radeon Anti-Lag+, was unveiled in the AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition programme last year, resulting in even lower latency. AMD rolled back Anti-Lag+ so AMD could make some improvements to ensure a better user experience for everyone, even though many of you had been enjoying its benefits across your favourite games. Since then, AMD know many of you have been eagerly waiting for its return.

AMD is pleased to inform you that AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2, AMD’s improved latency reduction technology, has returned. First of all Instead of being an in-driver solution, this new version of Anti-Lag is now a game-integrated technology, taking it to the next level. In order to incorporate AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 into Counter-Strike 2, AMD has worked closely with Valve. A technical preview and game update are also available. For the best in low-latency gaming and a more responsive esports experience, the AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition driver is now available. Continue reading to find out more about AMD Radeon Anti-Lag 2 and how to get access to the preview right now.

Counter-Strike 2 AMD Anti Lag

Anti-Lag and Radeon Anti Lag 2

By ensuring that the CPU pace is in sync with the GPU, Radeon Anti-Lag technology minimises the amount of CPU work that is left unfinished. Games become more responsive as a result of shorter input-to-display response times. AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition has long included driver-based Radeon Anti-Lag. Any game can use it to minimise latency and increase responsiveness.

Better frame syncing is made possible by the game’s integrated AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2, which applies frame alignment directly into the game code and combines it with the driver-controlled CPU pacing. This results in click-to-response latency that is even lower than that of an in-driver only programme such as Radeon Anti-Lag. As AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 is an in-game feature, game developers must incorporate it into their creations; Counter-Strike 2 was the first to do so.

Incredible Low-Latency Play

AMD has already discussed how AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 can provide the best possible low-latency gaming experience for Counter-Strike 2, but let’s take a look at some real numbers that demonstrate just how much more responsive your matches will be when playing the game on a variety of desktop and mobile AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards, as well as AMD Ryzen 8000 G-Series Processors with Radeon graphics, when compared to both turning off Anti-Lag and using the in-driver Radeon Anti-Lag.

By comparing AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 to no Anti-Lag (7), the average latency reduction across this spectrum of Radeon graphics cards and Ryzen G-Series processors is 37%, which is a noteworthy reduction.AMD’s updated in-game technology reduces latency by 95% more than AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2, confirming its supremacy over the in-driver solution.

Counter-Strike 2 Radeon Anti-Lag 2 Use

Steps to use AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 technical preview in Counter-Strike 2:

  • Install the Adrenalin Edition 24.5.1 AMD Software for Anti-Lag 2 Technical Preview driver after downloading it.
  • The Counter-Strike 2 “ADVANCED VIDEO” settings menu will then have “AMD Anti-Lag 2.0” enabled by default.

  • Win more Counter-Strike 2 matches with ultra-low click-to-response latency!
  • Click the upper right button to report AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition bugs with the AMD Bug Report Tool.

  • Discuss AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 on AMD’s AMD Red Team Community Forums.

By holding down the right CTRL key to view the latency with Anti-Lag off, you can also compare the latency between AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 and Anti-Lag off.

Product Compatibility for Radeon

Despite being incorporated into games, AMD Radeon Anti Lag 2 still requires cooperation with AMD’s AMD Software: Only AMD Radeon graphics cards are supported by the Adrenalin Edition graphics driver. It works with discrete and integrated GPUs above and with t as follows:

  • AMD Radeon RX 5000 series graphics, both for desktop and mobile use.
  • Radeon graphics processors and above are included in the AMD Ryzen 6000 Series. With the exception of certain AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors featuring AMD GCN architecture-based graphics.

What Happens to Radeon Anti-Lag 2 Next?

AMD is releasing the AMD Radeon Anti-Lag 2 SDK for game developers on GPUOpen next, and you can anticipate seeing AMD Radeon Anti-Lag 2 in more titles after it’s available as a Technical Preview in Counter-Strike 2. Follow AMD on social media @ AMD (X, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok) and AMD Community channels to get the most recent information about all of AMD’s incredible AMD technologies, including Radeon Anti-Lag 2.

With AMD Radeon Anti-Lag 2, a new feature that is presently under technical preview, you can expect improved gaming responsiveness through less input lag.Knowledge is divided as follows:

What Functions It Has:

  • Minimises input lag, particularly in situations requiring a GPU.
  • Improves the timing of the CPU and GPU to do this.
  • Provides options for the ideal frame rate during gameplay.


  • Just Counter-Strike 2 is available in technical preview at the moment.
  • In the “ADVANCED VIDEO” options section of Counter-Strike 2, enabled by default.


Requires graphics powered by the AMD RDNA architecture, which includes both discrete and integrated GPUs.


  • Since AMD is still in the technical preview stage, the specifications for Anti-Lag 2 are not yet available.
  • Further details are available in the official AMD release notes: [ON AMD, AMD Anti-Lag 2]

Extra Information:

  • Owing to possible compatibility problems, AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+, the prior version, is no longer available.
