AMD has released a new graphics driver update that disables its newly introduced Anti-Lag+ technology in all supported games. The latest graphics driver (23.10.2) is a follow-up to 23.10.1, which launched about a week ago and introduced Anti-Lag+. counter attack 2,

AMD has confirmed via official release notes that the reason for disabling the anti-lag technology is due to recent reports about some online games that were detecting Anti-Lag+ as a hacking tool, resulting in bans on players. Was put in place. AMD also said it is actively working with game developers and hopes to find a solution to re-enable Anti-Lag+ and restore it to gamers affected by anti-cheat restrictions.

counter attack Game developer Valve also warned gamers about the recent restrictions on its social media channels. “AMD’s latest driver makes its ‘Anti-Lag/+’ feature available cs2, which is implemented by separating engine DLL functions. If you are an AMD customer and play CS2, do not enable anti-lag/+; Any tampering with the CS code will result in a VAC ban” Valve said on Twitter (formerly X).

Anti-Lag+ is a recent version of AMD’s anti-lag technology that aims to reduce the time between when frames are released by the CPU and when they are displayed on the monitor, generally increasing how responsive games feel. Yes, it is improving. Available with AMD’s graphics software, Anti-Lag+ works by integrating itself into the game’s code to monitor the synchronization of frames within the render queue. It seems surprising that AMD did not thoroughly test this feature before making the technology available to a broader user base.

Regardless of its intentions, the company should have collaborated with game developers to avoid this problem, as it is common knowledge that anti-cheat systems check a game’s DLL for any signs of tampering. AMD could have easily prevented such issues from arising by asking game developers to include Anti-Lag+ in the whitelist of approved software for anti-cheat systems.

For now, we highly recommend updating to the latest driver update from AMD’s official website to avoid any restrictions.
