AMD released a new blog post this morning highlighting the adoption rate of FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 (FSR 2.0) among video game titles and developers. AMD says FSR 2.0 will soon support 16 new games, including big names like Hitman 3 and Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Adoption of FSR 2.0 by game development studios is also encouraging, with 19 new studios using AMD’s upscaling technology. ACME Game Studio, Arkane Lyon, Asobo Studio, CCP Games, GIANTS Software, IO Interactive, Luoxigu Network, Obsidian Entertainment, Perfect World Games (developer of Perfect World and Swordsman), Reflection/Bandai Namco, Respawn Entertainment, rct.ai, Santa Monica Studio, Soulive/Netmarble F&C, Striking Distance Studios, Tag Studio, Thunder Fire and Thunder Fire Interactive are among the companies
FSR 2.0 support has now been included in 16 more games, bringing the total number of updated games to 19. A few of the upcoming games are Abyss World, Asterigos, Delysium, EVE Online, Forspoken, Grounded, Hitman 3, Microsoft Flight Simulator, NiShuiHan, Overprime, Perfect World Remake, Rescue Party: Live!, Super People, Swordsman Remake, The Callisto Protocol and Unknown 9: Awakening. Games like God of War, Death Loop and Farming Simulator 22 already support FSR 2.0.
AMD also announced that FSR 1.0 support will be increased at the same time
Version 1.0 is now supported by Arma Reforger, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, Raji: An Ancient Epic Enhanced Edition, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online, and V Rising.
Since FSR 2.0 is now publicly available, this may seem odd. The simpler scaling approach in FSR 1.0, on the other hand, uses significantly less GPU resources. Additionally, game developers will find that the requirements for version 1.0 are less stringent. Due to these two characteristics, FSR 1.0 may be more attractive than FSR 2.0. Nothing, however, is stopping game developers from merging 1.0 and 2.0 into one game.
AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT and RX 6750 XT GPUs, along with a Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU and 3600 MHz DDR4 RAM, were used to test AMD’s latest “6×50 XT” series GPU.
Surprisingly, AMD also said that support for FSR 1.0 will be extended at the same time. Arma Reforger, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, Raji: An Ancient Epic Enhanced Edition, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online and V Rising are now compatible with version 1.0.
Since FSR 2.0 is now publicly available, this might seem unusual. In contrast, FSR 1.0’s relatively simple scaling solution consumes significantly less GPU resources. Additionally, game makers will find the 1.0 criteria to be less demanding. FSR 1.0 may be more attractive than FSR 2.0 due to these two qualities. However, nothing prevents game developers from combining versions 1.0 and 2.0 into one game.
AMD’s latest “6×50 XT” series GPUs were tested with Radeon RX 6950 XT and RX 6750 XT GPUs, along with a Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU and 3600 MHz DDR4 RAM. Even though the 6650 XT is technically part of the test suite, AMD unintentionally duplicated the 6750 XT slides twice in Farming Simulator 22, so we won’t know how it performs until AMD fixes the issue. ‘editing.
With the RX 6750 XT at identical settings, we see the same behavior, but at a slightly lower frame rate, which is to be expected. At native resolution, frame rates aren’t great, with an average FPS within 40 seconds. On the other hand, the quality mode increases the frame rate to an average of 54 frames per second. The Balanced option is only marginally better at 58 FPS.
Unfortunately, AMD made an editing error in their article and included many slides of the RX 6750 XT, so there are currently no RX 6650 XT results in Farming Simulator 22. However, AMD states that with the 6650 XT, FSR 2.0 improves performance in Farming Simulator 22 by up to 1.4x at 4K.
