AMD’s FSR 2.0 (FidelityFX Super Resolution) frame rate boosting feature, which uses temporal upscaling, is coming to Hitman 3 and a number of other games in the not too distant future.
Team Red just released one blog entry (opens in new tab) Unveiling of five new games supporting 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 these include Microsoft Flight Simulator, Eve Online and Forspoken (when it comes out later in the year – again this will be the first game to support DirectStorage, in particular ).
The full list of 16 games scheduled to support FSR 2.0 is as follows:
- world of the abyss
- EVE Online
- hit man 3
- Microsoft flight simulator
- Perfect World remake
- Rescue Team: Live
- great people
- Swordsman Remake
- The Callisto Protocol
- Unknown 9: Awakening
FSR 2.0 uses temporal upscaling, making it a major advance over FSR 1.0, which used spatial upscaling. The difference is that when it comes to temporal, FSR pulls data to not only work its magic from the current frame in game, but also from previous frames – just like Nvidia DLSS – resulting in a better upscaled image in terms of quality .
Analysis: Impressive progress and FSR 1.0 games to come
With those 16 incoming games and three titles already sporting the upscaling tech, that’s a total of 19 games that have brought or will bring FSR 2.0 on board.
In case you missed it, the launch game with FSR 2.0 was Deathloop, and since then we’ve watched the tech come to God of War and Farming Simulator 22. AMD has also provided some new benchmarks for the latter games, showing for example that Gott of War hit 66 frames per second (fps) by default on 4K “Ultra” settings on an RX 6950 XT. That jumped 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, very close to native 4K).
It’s good to see FSR 2.0 making commendable progress in sheer numbers, while it’s fair to say that a sizeable chunk of games coming on board are more obscure affairs, there are still some definitely big names in there the mix.
What’s interesting is that some games are still announcing support for FSR 1.0, with AMD observing that this is because the developers in question started incorporating the technology some time ago. Games receiving FSR 1.0 include Arma Reforger, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, iRacing, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online, and V Rising.
So yes, Hitman 3 gets both FSR 1.0 and 2.0 support, giving people a choice, with FSR 1.0 putting less strain on the GPUs – for worse results of course – but that means those with a lower graphics card that falls below the hardware recommendations for FSR 2.0 still have an option to fall back on to increase the frame rate.
