ASUS ROG Ally Now Supports AMD Fluid Motion Frames Technology

Gamers using Ryzen Z1 handhelds were disappointed to discover the latest updates regarding AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) support for desktops and mobile graphics. Unlike traditional graphics cards, gaming handhelds rely on proprietary graphics drivers provided by ASUS or Lenovo (in the example of the Legion Go system). While it is possible to install custom drivers to access the benefits of AMD driver support, this often results in complications with integrated software.

The positive development is that ASUS is rolling out the final updates to enable AFMF on the device. This eliminates the need for manual work, as local support will be available on the device. The AFMF feature will be officially launched on the ROG Ally today, although some regions have already started receiving the update.

The new update will appear on the device as an update for integrated graphics (iGPU) and Armory Crate SE (ACSE). Frame generation technology won't initially appear as an option in Command Center, but ASUS is actively working on adding this feature as well.

For those who may have overlooked the AFMF update, AMD introduced two methods for integrating additional frames into the graphics pipeline. It can work either as part of FidelityFX Super Resolution 3, as well as the upscaling component, although it doesn't have to be via the AFMF feature within the drivers or it can be used separately.

AMD has also introduced the option for gamers to access frame generation without requiring game developers to integrate FSR3 into their games. Gamers can enable AFMF globally for all games or opt for per-title activation, depending on what works best for them. However, such implementations lack testing by game developers and may yield different results. It is generally advised to enable AFMF for games already delivering 60 FPS or higher to improve the experience, although frame generation will work regardless. Gamers using a 120 Hz screen on the Ally now have the option to cap FPS at 60 FPS and use AFMF to potentially double the framerate, ultimately conserving power. The Lenovo Legion Go, also powered by the Ryzen Z1 series, currently lacks native support for AFMF.
