A more or less direct competitor of NVIDIA’s DLSS, FSR 2.0 boosts the performance of graphics cards with some success.

Exactly a year ago, AMD launched the FidelityFX Super Resolution in order to propose an alternative to the remarkable solution Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) from NVIDIA. A real success for AMD, which also hit the nail on the head in March with the presentation of version 2 and which can now boast of already having “more than 110 games” compatible with FSR.

Available for free on GPUOpen

The adoption of AMD technology does not seem to have to lose momentum and the American underlines that the ” FSR 2.0 supports 22 available and upcoming games “. Thereby, Hitman 3 is already compatible while Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands should soon follow.

More importantly, in order to support its adoption, AMD has decided to make FSR 2.0 free for developers. It is now available in the form of an open source API available on the GPUOpen site. Extensive documentation is accessible as well as the C++ and HLSL source code.

AMD specifies that plug-ins for Unreal Engine 4 and 5 are planned soon, that Xbox support is current and that FSR 2.0 will be available in the Xbox GDK. To find out more, it is of course possible to visit AMD’s blog.
