I used AMD Computex 2021 to announce specific details and start date for “Fidelity FX Super Resolution” technology – there is a matching video. According to AMD, FSR uses “the latest, highly optimized upgrade technology to increase the frame rate and deliver a high-quality, high-fidelity gaming experience without the need to upgrade to a new graphics card”.
Here’s what AMD says about FSR (Fidelity FX Super Resolution):
AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution uses the latest upgrade technology to increase the frame rate and provide a high-quality, high-definition gaming experience without the need for a new graphics card. Get up to 2.5X 4K performance with FSR “Performance” in select games. Compatible with virtually any graphics card, from integrated graphics to the ultra-enthusiastic graphics card. The cutting-edge spatial refresh algorithm delivers gaming experiences with almost original precision with particularly high-quality edges and details.
“With FidelityFX Super Resolution, AMD introduced another amazing platform-independent feature that is easy for developers to implement and gives Godfall players better performance with higher resolution as everything pops up, including ray tracing.” – Keith Lee, CEO of Counterplay Games
This year, there are already more than a dozen developer studios and game engines on board, which will provide AMD’s FSR. AMD also mentions “over a hundred GPUs and CPUs” that will support FSR. AMD’s variant of the AI-assisted upgrade should be of particular interest to laptops and desktops with integrated graphics, which can actually handle some of the current games at 1080p resolution. Fidelity FX Super Resolution should be available June 22, and by then more details about the technology should be known, as announced in the summary.
