Xbox Series X will support AMD’s answer to Nvidia DLSS.
AMD will release an extended version of its FidelityFX sharpening tool called FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), June 22.
With this news, Microsoft has confirmed to IGN that Xbox Series X will support AMD technology.
“At Xbox, we are excited about the potential of AMD’s FidelityFX super-resolution technology as another great way for developers to increase frame rates and resolution,” a Microsoft spokesperson told the site. “We will have more to share about this soon.”
Microsoft integrated the original FidelityFX tool into the Xbox Series X/S development kit, which allows developers to “utilize platform-centric optimization” from the kit.
According to IGN, FidelityFX Super Resolution uses upgrade modes: balance, performance, quality, and super quality. Each mode focuses on achieving “higher image quality or increasing the frame rate of the game.”
FSR is similar to Nvidia’s DLSS because it improves the performance and frame rate of the game through upgrades (thanks to Neowin).
Unlike Nvidia, which uses a dedicated Tensor core to handle the super-sampling process, AMD GPUs do not have an equivalent machine learning chip. This means that FSR can be supported by a wide range of hardware, even Nvidia GPUs.
