Rumors about 4 distorted intermediate images

from Andrew Link
Details about AMD’s FSR 3 (Fidelity FX Super Resolution 3) and its frame generation, as offered by DLSS 3, are available via Github. The new details seem to indicate that the upcoming technology can be enabled on the driver side and will produce more than one intermediate image.

GPU Open code via Github has FSR 3 (Fidelity FX Super Resolution 3) updates. In accordance with this, it seems that AMD is implementing frame generation like Nvidia in DLSS 3 and wants to generate not just one intermediate image, but even four. For comparison: Nvidia creates one image for each frame displayed. More synthetic intermediate images don’t have to be good at first, because frame generation also has disadvantages – such as high input lag.

It is difficult to say at the moment how things will turn out in the end. Advertising aside, FSR 3 and its features have been relatively quiet. AMD has stated so far that it will not necessarily use AI for FSR Fidelity FX Super Resolution because it has more suitable use cases for AI hardware. It will be interesting in the future to see what the AMD image computation results would look like — especially at higher values ​​like 1 — without the hardware-accelerated, AI-powered “fluid motion.” In any case, AMD promises twice the framerates of FSR 3 compared to FSR 2.

It is also assumed that FSR 3 will then only work with Radeon graphics cards because the implementation on the driver side precludes use on third party hardware. But the last word is certainly not said here either, because AMD has always emphasized the open approach to FSR technology and the discovery made in the code can serve as a fallback.

Some time ago, the case for FSR 3 was discussed, with Frank Azor emphasizing that the technology announced for 2023 should not only be powered by RDNA 3.”[AMD FSR 3] Not a quick reaction or thing [auf DLSS3]It’s something we’ve been working on for quite some time. Why is it taking a little longer than I hoped? The most important thing about FSR is that the philosophy of FSR and FSR so far not only works on RDNA 2 or RDNA 1 but also on other generations of AMD graphics cards. It also runs on competitive graphics cards. It’s much more difficult than just getting it to work on RDNA 3. […] We really want to work on more than just RDNA3. Starting sometime in 2023.
