Over the course of last night AMD has released Adrenaline 23.10.1. In addition to improvements in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, The Lords of the Fallen, and Forza Motorsport, this driver release also brings support for Anti-Lag+. With anti-lag+ It’s a function to reduce latency in games – especially in competitive games like Counter Strike 2.
However, Valve does not recommend using Anti-Lag+ in Counter Strike 2, as a matter of fact Post on X Offers.
Anti-Lag+ obviously tampers with some DLL files in the game and this in turn means changes in the game code that Valve does not allow and this eventually leads to a VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat) ban. Therefore, Valve explicitly does not recommend using Anti-Lag+. According to Valve, until there is an update from AMD or similar collaboration, nothing can be done about tampering or ban detection.
Anti-Lag+ works at the driver level and is not integrated directly into the game like NVIDIA’s Reflex. Of course, AMD sells itself a certain amount of freedom in implementing Anti-Lag+, but as you can see by now, this is not always problem-free. Anti-Lag+ technology is supported by Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards.
So far, there has been no statement from AMD on this subject.
