In addition to new chips, AMD also presented FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology of the second version. It will rely on the improved upscaling and anti-aliasing engine needed to offload the graphics adapter with little degradation in image quality. As before, the technology will not be tied to hardware and will be able to function on most video cards from other manufacturers.



The main feature of FSR 2.0 is an improved approach to upscaling. The algorithm of the previous version of the technology functioned like a photo editor, which only stretched the existing frame to the assigned parameter and slightly increased sharpness. To carry out such an action, the participation of the game engine was also necessary. In addition, at low resolutions, the mechanism did not have enough information to resize the image while maintaining aspect ratio, which adversely affected the image quality.

FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 works in a modernized way to improve the frame. In the course of work, the technology applies the main color tone of the frame, depth and motion vectors in the rendering pipeline. In addition, data from past frames is used to reproduce the image with increased resolution. FSR 2.0 also has its own anti-aliasing techniques that can replace the toolkit embedded in the engine.

FidelityFX Super Resolution 2nd version does not need separate AI blocks. The technology will become available for a variety of third-party video adapters. According to AMD, the technology needs to be added to their titles by the game creators themselves. For example, Arkane Studios has already done this in their Deathloop action. Players will be able to see the improved algorithm already in the 2nd half of this year.



At the same time, AMD also introduced the Radeon Super Resolution function, which in fact is the FSR of the 1st iteration, which was implemented in the driver. This solution makes it possible to enable upscaling in each game in full screen mode. This technology will differ from FSR in that all elements in the image will be scaled, and not just three-dimensional frames.

RSR will be added to the upcoming Adrenalin Edition 2022 driver update. Only owners of RX 5000 and newer video cards will be able to try it.
