AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR to its Friends) will hit virtually every graphics card this June, and you can expect your favorite game to receive the treatment of super res Desire site bombing AMD site. Do you think we could get Rockstar to block FSR support for Red Dead Redemption 2 ahead of Nvidia’s DLSS by repeatedly calling AMD? Undoubtedly, this would be the "easy to integrate" part of FSR.
AMD has unveiled the exciting new feature during its main Computex 2021 presentation, and the impressive new technology promises to deliver frame rate hits to all Radeon GPUs that go back to the old RX 500 series cards.
But it’s not just limited to AMD’s own architectures, though, as Nvidia and presumably Intel are also invited to the FSR party. In fact, AMD demonstrated the venerable GTX 1060 running FidelityFX Super Resolution, with Godfall increasing performance by 41%. Compare that to the ultra-proprietary Nvidia DLSS, which is a very sweet move by AMD.
As our Katie noted, "AMD has extracted additional GPU performance from its competitor in a way that Nvidia can't."
The only thing that is perhaps a little less exciting than the FSR announcement is the fact that it is still something that needs to be enabled at the developer level and so far AMD only says that “more than ten studies and game engines will allow it. ”Support for FSR in 2021. However, more will come, and hopefully more details on exactly what they are, but AMD wants you to get involved right now.
pressuring developers vote for which game you need to have FSR skill.
This reminds me when Microsoft asked for compatibility recommendations with previous versions for the Xbox One, AMD decides to release a public ranking of which games are most requested. It was always fun.
The original Red Dead Redemption was number one on this list, so there is some symmetry when it comes to setting RDR2 at the top of FidelityFX's Super Resolution lists. And while it’s nice, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a tour for it, so offering a decent frame rate on older GPUs would be very welcome. Especially for graphics cards that DLSS can't avoid.
