Next week, AMD will launch the FidelityFX Super Resolution or FSR for short. It’s the answer to Nvidia’s DLSS technology which should improve the performance of certain PC games, primarily at 1440p and 4K resolutions, and the good news is that it arrives for free and you won’t need the latest graphics cards to see the FSR in action.
You'll be able to get improved performance with Radeon cards from the RX 6000, RX 5000, RX 500 or RX Vega series, or any Ryzen APU. If you’re on the Nvidia side, FSR will work for you with the GTX 1000 series or newer RTX.
AMD has now revealed which games will support FSR, ie in which you can expect more frames per second in exchange for a slightly blurry image. Following its launch on June 22, SFO will be supported in a total of seven PC games, namely:
- Anno 1800
- Evil Genius 2
- Terminator Resistance
- The Riftbreaker
- 22 Racing Series
The line-up is not quite, to be honest, but AMD says that more than 40 developers are interested in FSR and confirm that 12 more games will support their technology, sometime in the future. These are the following games:
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- Dota 2
- Far Cry 6
- Farming Simulator 22
- Necromunda: Hired gun
- Resident Evil Village
- Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodhunt
This isn’t a very strong setup either, but it’s a start nonetheless. In Nvidia's camp, DLSS is supported in more than 50 games, including the most popular ones - Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, Minecraft, Rainbow Six Siege, and others. But DLSS is only available on RTX cards, while FSR will be available to almost everyone.
