AMD Announces DLSS Slayer; Big Performance Gains, Also on GeForce

AMD has unveiled the FidelityFX Super Resolution technology that will help increase the frame rate when playing demanding titles. It is the company's answer to DLSS from Nvidia.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  • AMD presented FidelityFX Super Resolution;
  • The technology is the answer to DLSS from Nvidia;
  • It will enable us to increase the fps by up to 200%.

AMD unveiled its new technology called FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR). It is a direct answer to Nvidia's DLSS. It also performs the same function, but unlike the competing solution, it does not use artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms. It will help in getting significantly more fps during gameplay and will launch on June 22, this year.

FidelityFX Super Resolution will be available for use on all cards of the Radeon RX series. In addition, the technology will also be supported by Ryzen APUs and competing products. In fact, FSR will benefit owners of GPUs from Nvidia (even if they do not support DLSS). As an example, the GeForce GTX 1060 was given, which was able to generate 41% more fps using AMD's technology. FidelityFX will also support DirectX 12, Vulkan and DirectX 11 libraries.

The company also explained how we will be able to use FSR. Supported games will use four different settings - Ultra Quality, Quality, Balanced and Performance. Players will be able to choose which effects they are most interested in. Ultra Quality will increase performance by up to 59% while maintaining the highest image quality. Subsequent settings will provide increasing gains in frame rate, but lower quality. The Performance option is supposed to allow for performance gains of up to 206%.

For now, AMD presented the operation of its technology only on the example of Godfall. It is not yet known what other titles will use FSR. Most likely, we will learn more at the time of the release of the new feature, which is June 22.
