AMD has launched its highly anticipated spatial upscaling solution, FidelityFX Super Resolution. An open-source, cross-platform technology that utilizes an advanced edge reconstruction algorithm to analyze features in the source image and recreate them at a higher target resolution, FidelityFX Super Resolution is said to deliver 2.4X higher performance on average under its “Performance” mode at 4K across select titles compared to native resolution. AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution is supported on more than 100 AMD processors and GPUs, as well as select NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. Gamers can try the technology out beginning today in 22 Racing Series, Anno 1800, Evil Genius 2, Godfall, Kingshunt, Terminator: Resistance, and The Riftbreaker. Support for AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution will be added to Resident Evil Village, Far Cry 6, and other major titles at a later date.
“Our goal with FidelityFX Super Resolution was to develop an advanced, world-class upscaling solution based on industry standards that can quickly and easily be implemented by game developers, and is designed for how gamers really play games,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “FSR is the industry’s ideal upscaler – it does not require any specialized, proprietary hardware and is supported across a broad spectrum of platforms and ecosystems for all gamers to experience and enjoy. We couldn’t be happier with the response and support by our developer partners and can’t wait for gamers to get their hands on FSR to try it for themselves.”
