AMD Radeon Super Resolution to launch this week as FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 details emerge
CapFrameX and VideoCardz have outlined what to expect from Fidelity Super Resolution (FSR) 2.0, which builds on the first generation of AMD's alternative to NVIDIA DLSS. According to CapFrameX, FSR 2.0 utilises temporal upscaling and optimised anti-aliasing, among other features. For reference, temporal upscaling uses data from previous frames to maximise image quality.
As the image below shows, AMD will assert that FSR 2.0 'delivers similar or better' image quality than running a game natively, which is quite the claim. Unsurprisingly, FSR 2.0 will yield superior results compared to FSR 1.0 and will boost framerates in supported games. Moreover, FSR 2.0 does not require dedicated machine learning (ML) hardware, opening it up to existing and older graphics cards.
Seprately, AMD is on the verge of releasing Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) too. As we discussed in January, RSR should provide up to 70% higher framerates in 'thousands of games'. Unlike FSR 2.0, RSR works at a driver level. Hence, developers will not need to make their games compatible with RSR. RSR will be available to all Radeon RX 5000 series graphics and newer, although all models will require at least AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 22.1.3 to utilise RSR. Purportedly, both technologies will be available from March 17.
