AMD detailed how constant improvements to Radeon Software has resulted in tangible performance gains in popular games. During the presentation, AMD also briefly touched upon FSR 2.0 and said Deathloop will be the first major title to enable FSR 2.0 support on May 12 with other popular titles to soon follow suit.

AMD detailed several improvements and advantages with its Radeon software platform during the launch of the refreshed Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT, and the Radeon RX 6650 XT cards.

AMD claimed that updates to the Radeon Adrenalin drivers have resulted in perceivable improvements in game performance. The company showed that the newer 22.10 drivers can offer as much as 13% improvement in Forza Horizon 5 at 4K Extreme DX12 compared to the 21.50 version. Radeon software's Privacy View uses presence detection technology to dim or fade the screen visibility to keep data away from prying eyes. 

AMD introduced FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) upscaling as an open-source, cross-platform alternative to Nvidia's DLSS technology that does not require dedicated machine learning hardware. Unlike Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) that is enabled within the driver, FSR requires developers to opt-in and enable support. The company said that more than 80 games have enabled FSR 1.0 support so far and is now ready to introduce FSR 2.0.

AMD first detailed improvements coming to FSR 2.0 at GDC 2022 on March 23, which can be viewed below. FSR 2.0 includes Quality, Balanced, and Performance modes along with an optional Ultra Performance mode and Dynamic Resolution Scaling.

Deathloop with be the first major game to enable FSR 2.0 support via an update that will be available to download on May 12. Other games slated to receive FSR 2.0 goodness soon include Asterigos, Delysium, EVE Online, Farming Simulator 22, Forspoken, Grounded, Microsoft Flight Simulator, NiShuiHan, Perfect World Remake, Swordsman Remake, and Unknown 9: Awakening.
