AMD has revealed the games that will get updates to support the latest version of its upscaling technology, FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.0.
Deathloop will be the first title to receive FSR 2.0 support, which will roll out in a game update today.
Other games that will receive FSR 2.0 updates in the coming months include Microsoft Flight Simulator, EVE Online, Forspoken, and Farming Simulator.
Many big triple-A titles like Cyberpunk 2077, God of War, and Far Cry 6 already support FSR 1.0, so it’s expected that these titles will eventually get FSR 2.0 compatibility patches.
FSR 2.0’s most significant change from its predecessor is the switch from spatial upscaling to temporal upscaling. This means that FSR 2.0 can create cleaner and higher fidelity images than the upscaling technology’s previous version.
However, FSR 2.0’s technological improvements will require more powerful hardware to run. AMD recommends a GPU equivalent to an RX 6700 XT or RX 5700 XT to render 4K, while an RX 6500 XT or GTX 16-series card will be enough for 1080p.
FSR’s benefit over other upscaling technology like Nvidia’s DLSS is that it doesn’t require exclusive machine learning hardware, like Nvidia’s RTX-series graphics cards.
Eliminating this hardware-based restriction means FSR 2.0 can be implemented on older graphics cards and cards from different manufacturers and platforms.
For example, AMD has optimised FSR 2.0 for RDNA2-based hardware and therefore added it to the Xbox Series S/X development kit, meaning that some upcoming Xbox titles will launch with FSR 2.0 support baked-in.
