AMD releases new Radeon driver and turns off Anti-Lag+ to prevent gamers from getting banned

AMD is rolling out a new graphics driver. Version 23.10.2 is now available for supported Radeon GPUs with support for Assassin's Creed Mirage, The Lords of the Fallen, and Forza Motorsport. More importantly, the update turns off the AMD Anti-Lag+ feature to prevent gamers from getting banned in multiplayer games. Here is what AMD has to say about the situation:

AMD has received reports of some games triggering anti-cheat bans on gamers when AMD Anti-Lag+ technology is enabled on Radeon graphics. To address this, we have released the AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 23.10.2 driver that disables Anti-Lag+ technology in all supported games, and we recommend gamers use the new driver. AMD is actively working with game developers on a resolution to re-enable Anti-Lag+ and to help reinstate gamers who were impacted by the anti-cheat bans. We will provide more information when available.

For those unfamiliar, AMD Radeon Anti-Lag+ is a technology that ensures your processor is not getting "far ahead" of the graphics card to reduce the amount of CPU work queued up. AMD claims the feature allows for better frame syncing and lower input latency.

Here are other changes Radeon Software version 23.10.2 brings:
