AMD’s FSR 2.0 (FidelityFX Super Resolution) framework boosting feature uses temporal upscaling, which is coming to the group of Hitman 3 and other games in the very distant future.
Team Red just published a Blog post (Opens in new tab) FSR reveals five new games that support 2.0, including Hitman 3, 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, including Microsoft Flight Simulator, Eve Online and ForceSpoken (which will be the first game to support this later in the year – direct storage, in particular).
The full list of 16 games due to FSR 2.0 support is as follows:
- The abyssal world
- EVE Online
- Hitman 3
- Microsoft Flight Simulator
- Over Prime
- Perfect World Remake
- Rescue Party: Live
- Super People
- Swordsman remake
- Callisto protocol
- Unknown 9: Awakening
FSR 2.0 uses temporal upscaling, which is a major step up from FSR 1.0, which uses spatial upscaling. The difference is that with Temporal, FSR does its magic not only from the current frame of the game but also from previous frames – drawing data to work as Nvidia DLSS does and it does for a better upscale image in terms of quality.
Analysis: Impressive progress and FSR 1.0 games are yet to come
Those 16 games are inbound, and all three titles already boast of upscaling technology, bringing or bringing in a total of 19 games of FSR 2.0.
If you’ve missed it, launch game Deathloop with FSR 2.0, and since then we’re seen technology coming to God of War and Farming Simulator 22. AMD also provided some new benchmarks for later games, for example in the God RX 6950 XT the battle default at 4K ‘ultra’ settings was 66 frames per second (fps). It’s significantly increased to 96 fps with FSR 2.0 in performance mode and 83 fps with FSR 2.0 in quality mode (for the best enhanced image quality, it looks very close to native 4K).
While it’s great to see admirable progress in FSR 2.0 raw numbers, it’s fair to say that a significant portion of the games coming on-board are more obscure deals, but there are still some definite big names in the mix.
Interestingly, support for FSR 1.0 is still being announced with some games, due to AMD noting that developers have been working on embedding the technology for some time. Games that get FSR 1.0 include Arma Reforger, Assassin ‘Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, Irasing, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online and V Rising.
So yes, Hitman 3 gets both FSR 1.0 and 2.0 support, while FSR 1.0 offers less pressure on GPUs and FSR 1.0 and 2.0 support – for poor results, of course – but that means less graphics card. Hardware recommendations for FSR 2.0 are still likely to fall behind for frame rate boosting.
