It's been one of the big question marks for AMD when it came to the launch of its new AMD Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards. Where's the DLSS equivelant? So much so that we mentioned it in our review of the flagship (and impressive) AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT. Today, as a part of its Computex 2021 presentation AMD lifted the lid on just that -- AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution.
Built on "open-source cutting-edge spatial upscaling technology" , it's set to become available to all developers and support the entire range of AMD graphics cards. And surprisingly, NVIDIA too.
AMD presented the new technology with a look at its implementation in Godfall.
It's impressive, with a 59% increase in performance in 4K using the 'Ultra Quality Mode' which is said to offer near-native like image quality. Like DLSS, FidelityFX Super Resolution will offer different modes -- with Performance Mode set to offer more than double the increase.
AMD notes that as an open-source bit of tech we should expect to see its integration in at least 10 titles this year.
No word on whether PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X integration is planned, but with both next-gen consoles running on AMD hardware it's probably safe to assume that it's a yes on both counts.
The real kicker though is that FidelityFX Super Resolution not only supports all AMD graphics hardware from the 6000 series to the 5000 and older, but NVIDIA GeForce too. In the presentation above we get to see it running on one of the most popular graphics cards of all time -- the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.
With NVIDIA's DLSS impressing due to its use of cutting edge AI hardware and software, it'll be interesting to see how the image quality of AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution compares once the support arrives in full.
