Will AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution outclass NVIDIA’S DLSS?

The much-anticipated launch of FideltyFX Super Resolution due this spring.

AMD plans to give its rival NVIDIA a tough run by the much-anticipated launch of FideltyFX Super Resolution this spring. AMD shared a sneak peek of the FideltyFX Super Resolution at the launch of the Radeon RX 6000 series. However, AMD declared that the solution was still under development with the assistance of several game developers, and certainly, no other significant details were entailed back then.

The already present market dominator NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super-Sampling) is an AI-based technology, which kicked off in 2018 when the GeForce RTX 20 series was launched. Hence, DLSS actively demonstrates the upscaling of an image with lower resolution into an image with higher resolution. So far, two generations of DLSS have been launched. The first generation known as the DLSS 1.0 was not up to par, as it enhanced performance at the expense of lowering the image quality. Hence, typically games used the native resolution with standard AA methods rather than DLSS. On the other hand, the evolution of the second-generation known as DLSS 2.0 not only boosted the performance but also managed to achieve the same image quality as the native resolution. This upgrade marked the dominance of NVIDIA’s DLSS in the market.

However, AMD is making headlines as it plans to set in motion the rival of NVIDIA’s DLSS in the March of 2021, as a part of a major Adrenaline Radeon driver release. This release will primarily comprise of two major updates. The first being the introduction of the FideltyFX Super Resolution, while the second being the update of Radeon Boost, which works dynamically (response to motion) for enhancing game smoothness. The new update to the AMD Radeon Boost feature will be able to cope up with some issues in regards to dynamic scaling, enabling the games to uplift performance, with increased frame rates by reducing the overall resolution.

AMD already possesses a lead when it comes to cost and power consumption of new GPUs (Graphics Processing Units). With that being said, AMD for sure qualifies as a tough competitor to NVIDIA and might give them a good run for their market share. Hence, to sum up, everything that has been stated so far, if AMD is able to master the upscaling technique in their new release of the FideltyFX Super Resolution, who knows they might become the new wizard of the sampling technology!
