Great news for Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S owners. A few days ago, we told you that AMD will launch its new technology at the end of June: AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution. This is the response to the DLSS AMD to Nvidia, to improve the performance of video games through software, which will give us more power on the same machines. Now it has been confirmed that AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution is coming to Xbox consoles.
Microsoft has confirmed, in statements to IGN, that Xbox Series X | S will have support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution in the future, which will cause the resolution and the rate of images per second to be even better on both consoles. In general, both this technology and Nvidia’s DLSS are changing video games, because we can move better games on the same hardware.
“At Xbox, we are excited about the potential of AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution technology as another great method for developers to increase frame rate and resolution. We will have more to share on this soon, ” a Microsoft spokesperson told IGN. Will we see information on this topic in E3 2021? It would not be unreasonable.
FidelityFX Super Resolution is a supersampling technology that will increase both the performance and the image quality of the games that support it, and will have several image enhancement modes, prioritizing more quality or higher fps. In principle, this news confirms what everyone already assumed, since the architecture of the new Xbox consoles is prepared to support this technology, something that has already been commented. Still, confirmation is still important.
Although this technology is the answer to DLSS, it does not work the same. FidelityFX Super Resolution does not require machine learning and is open source. DLSS relies on Artificial Intelligence to improve, something that is not the case in AMD’s solution.
