NVIDIA DLSS, based on the use of AI hardware inside NVIDIA GPUs, to reconstruct scenes at a higher resolution, allowing the GPU to render at a lower resolution than the output resolution and gain in frame rate at certain resolutions. DLSS is increasingly supported by developers, which has led AMD to launch a similar solution for its GPUs, which do not have units for AI and therefore the FSR works differently.
These are the first games to support AMD FSR
One of the advantages of AMD FSR over NVIDIA DLSS is the fact that it does not require learning the inference algorithm because it is not AI-based. So while we wait for June 22, when AMD will give us new details, we already know which 7 games will support AMD FSR on launch day:
- 22 series of races
- Year 1800
- Evil genius 2
- the fall of god
- The King’s Hunt
- Termination resistance
- The fault breaker
To these will be added 12 other games in the days or weeks that will come later, the list of which is as follows:
- The gate of Baldur III
- DOTA 2
- Edge of eternity
- FarCry 6
- Farming Simulator 22
- Necromunda: Rental Pistol
- Resident Evil Village
- Swordsman remake
- Vampire the masked blood hunt.
The FSR therefore opens with a good collection of current games. Although it won’t end there, since the AMD FSR is designed to have broad support from the start.
Extensive developer support
The 19 games mentioned in the previous section they’re not the only ones that support AMD’s super-resolution algorithm And as expected, the fact that AMD will launch its FidelityFX Super Resolution under an open source license from MIT and on the other hand does not require training in its data centers makes it many developers have decided to adopt it. In total a few 44 studios and / or publishers
The AMD FSR will have 4 different quality levels, but at the moment we don’t know how it compares in terms of image quality to the NVIDIA DLSS solution. We will have to wait for new details to appear around the 22nd, as well as the comparisons. Has AMD succeeded in countering NVIDIA’s DLSS? In a few days we will find out, in any case, it will be a significant increase in the performance of the AMD RX 5000 and RX 6000 gaming GPUs.
