AMD officially unveiled the FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 and Radeon Super Resolution. Here are all the details on the new technologies.
After the rumors of the past few days, AMD officially presented the FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 and Radeon Super Resolution technologies. FSR 2.0 will be available during Q2 2022, while RSR is available today as part of the AMD Software Adrenalin Edition.
According to the official presentation video, which you can view in the player below, we learn that FSR 2.0 will offer higher image quality and framerate than version 1.00 with all modes (Ultra Quality, Quality, Balanced, and Performance), as well as similar results if not even higher than those of native images.
The technology is based on temporal data and adopts an optimized anti-aliasing filter which, unlike Nvidia’s DLSS, does not take advantage of Machine Learning and therefore can be used with both AMD and competitor GPUs.
As mentioned at the beginning, the RSR (AMD Radeon Super Resolution) was also presented which offers all the advantages of the aforementioned technology, but working at the driver level with “thousands of games” that do not natively support the FSR, thus improving its performance. However in this case the technology is only supported by AMD 5000 series GPUs.
As mentioned at the beginning, the RSR is available today for compatible GPUs, while the FSR 2.0 will debut during the second quarter of 2022, with further details that should arrive during the GDC next week.
