AMD simply introduced that the corporate’s FidelityFX Super Resolution model v2.0.1 is out there to builders to make use of of their upcoming video games. The GPU Open weblog put up outlines AMD’s latest evolution of its temporal upscaling tech, goes deep into the combination methodology, and provides the rundown on help.

Similar to Nvidia’s AI-powered upscaling tech (DLSS), AMD’s algorithms primarily take the scene being rendered in a given game, and upscale it to the specified decision, in order to enhance efficiency however retain picture constancy. It can actually make a distinction, too. Way again at it is preliminary launch, we noticed FidelityFX Super Resolution work flawlessly in our first look, and the upscaling software has solely been bettering since then.

FSR 2.0, which we have proved can look higher than native 4K in Deathloop, comes with help for Vulkan and DirectX 12 right away. Soon devs will even be rolling out help for “Unreal Engine 4.26/4.27 and Unreal Engine 5 as a plugin from the Unreal Marketplace.”

The announcement for FSR 2.0 hitting dev’s toolkits means nice issues for avid gamers throughout the board, regardless of FSR 2.0 being tuned to run quicker on RDNA 2-powered graphics playing cards. AMD’s FSR 2.0 works on all method of GPU, from AMD’s to Nvidia’s. So you may nonetheless get some stage of profit from FSR even for those who’re with the green group. 

Back in March, Nvidia additionally launched an open-source framework to make it simpler for builders to plug AMD’s or Intel’s upscaling algorithms into their video games’ rendering pipelines.

The announcement notes that, since each FSR 1 and FSR 2 have their very own distinctive traits that work higher in numerous gameplay situations, “FSR 1 can still be exposed as its own upscaling option in addition to FSR 2 in game titles.” 

That means devs may give gamers the choice to select between FSR variations in-game, identical to they’ve allowed in Deathloop.

AMD’s at all times been all for for conserving the participant in management, as they steadiness efficiency with aesthetics to their very own liking. Now devs solely want to move to AMD’s FSR Github web page and comply with the rules to implement this nice upscaling tech.
