AMD has announced two new technologies as part of its software lineup: FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.0 and Radeon Super Resolution (RSR), which aim to get more out of GPUs with a ” work smarter, not harder ” approach.
AMD notes that FSR 2.0 will offer better image quality than FSR 1.0 in all four modes (Ultra Quality, Quality, Balanced, and Performance). FSR 2.0 promises to offer higher frame rates than its original iteration and compete more closely with DLSS 2.0. While DLSS 2.0 uses machine learning, AMD’s solution optimizes antialiasing based on temporal data.
FidelityFX Super Resolution is AMD’s supersampling technology that launched last June as a competitor to Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). Unlike DLSS, which only works on Nvidia RTX GPUs, FSR is open source and compatible with graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia.
Along with FSR 2.0, AMD has also announced Radeon Super Resolution. The tech giant says ” takes everything good ” that FidelityFX Super Resolution offers and puts it into a controller. This means it will allow you to enable FSR features in various games that don’t yet have native support, offering an extra boost in performance. However, RSR support only occurs with AMD Radeon RX 5000 (or newer) GPUs.
FSR 2.0 doesn’t have a release date, though AMD could share more information about a release window next Wednesday at GDC. While Radeon Super Resolution is available today as part of AMD’s new software: Adrenalin Edition.
