AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) hasn’t exactly been thrilling for gamers who were expecting an upscaling solution that could beat (or even measure up to) NVIDIA DLSS, but the latest rumors suggest that something new from red team could be right around the corner. According to CapFrameX, AMD will be announcing FSR 2.0 soon, an updated version of the technology that is reportedly “very impressive” thanks to a handful of improvements that include temporal upscaling and the lack of need for AI acceleration, enabling a more comprehensive level of GPU support. AMD has also supposedly claimed that FSR 2.0 can create an image that’s superior to native resolution.

An event listed on the session viewer for this year’s GDC event seems to confirm that AMD is definitely readying up a demonstration for the next iteration of FSR.
