AMD’s FSR 2.0 (FidelityFX Super Resolution) frame rate boost feature that uses temporary upscaling is coming to Hitman 3 and a ton of other games in the not-too-distant future.
Team Red just published a blog post (opens in new tab) revealing five new games that support FSR 2.0, including Hitman 3 as mentioned, as well as Abyss World, Rescue Party: Live, Super People and The Callisto Protocol.
AMD also reminded us of 11 other games that will get FSR 2.0 in the future, and that includes Microsoft Flight Simulator, Eve Online and Forspoken (when it comes out later in the year – this will also be the first game to support DirectStorage, with name).
The full list of 16 games that support FSR 2.0 is as follows:
- Abyss World
- EVE Online
- Hitman 3
- Microsoft Flight Simulator
- Perfect World Remake
- Rescue Party: Live
- great people
- Swordsman Remake
- The Callisto protocol
- Unknown 9: Awakening
FSR 2.0 uses temporal scaling, which makes it a big step forward over FSR 1.0 that used spatial scaling. The difference is that with temporal FSR it pulls data to work its magic, not just from the current frame in-game, but also from previous frames – just like Nvidia DLSS does – and this makes for a better upscaled image in terms of quality.
Analysis: Impressive progress and FSR 1.0 games still coming
With those 16 games coming in and three titles already boasting about the upscaling technology, that’s a total of 19 games that have brought or are bringing FSR 2.0 on board.
In case you missed it, the launch game with FSR 2.0 was Deathloop, and since then we’ve witnessed the technology come to God of War and Farming Simulator 22. AMD also provided some new benchmarks for the latest games, which for example shows that at 4K ‘ultra’ settings on an RX 6950 XT, God of War achieves 66 frames per second (fps) by default. That increased significantly to 96 fps with FSR 2.0 in performance mode and 83 fps with FSR 2.0 in quality mode (for the best upscaled image quality, which looks very close to native 4K).
It’s good to see FSR 2.0 making commendable progress in raw numbers, even though it’s fair to say a significant portion of the games coming on board are more obscure affairs, there are still some obvious big names in the mix. mix.
What’s interesting to note is that support for FSR 1.0 is still being announced for some games, with AMD noting that this is because the developers in question started work on integrating the technology some time ago. The games getting FSR 1.0 are Arma Reforger, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, iRacing, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online, and V Rising.
So yes, Hitman 3 will get both FSR 1.0 and 2.0 support, giving people a choice, with FSR 1.0 putting less of a strain on GPUs – for inferior results, of course – but that means those with a lesser graphics card falling below the hardware recommendations. for FSR 2.0 still have an option to fall back on for increasing the frame rate.
