AMD unleashes FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.2 for current games

AMD has announced the release of its AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.2, the company’s latest open-source and cross-platform temporal upscaling technology that has been built to deliver incredible image quality and help boost framerates in supported games.

The company said  FSR 2.1 has been very successful, with more than half of the games available with FSR 2 already using v2.1 (or higher).

“But here at AMD our pace of development never slows down, and we recently announced FSR 2.2 at our AMD Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics launch on November 3. This new version provides additional quality enhancements over FSR 2.1, especially in high-speed games such as the first game to get it, Forza Horizon 5, updated with FSR 2.2 on November 8, 2022,” said Alexander Blake-Davies, software product marketing specialist for Radeon Software for Developers at AMD.

“We’re excited to announce that two more high-speed games have and will be getting FSR 2.2. The first game is Need for Speed Unbound, which was released on December 2, 2022. The second is F1   22, which will be updated with FSR 2.2 in January 2023. Along with these new FSR 2.2 games, we’re also thrilled to announce that an upcoming update to 3DMark will add an FSR Feature Test that will use FSR 2.2,” the executive added.

AMD said the AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.2 is the latest update to its temporal upscaling technology and upgrades the already improved upscaling image quality of FSR 2.1  with further quality enhancements to alleviate ghosting on fast-moving objects, such as the cars found in the three games that currently support FSR 2.2. Forza Horizon 5 by Playground Games and Xbox Game Studios was the first game to get FSR 2.2 in an update released on November.

Gamers can now race through the vibrant and ever-evolving open-world landscapes of Mexico with FSR 2 helping deliver stunning visual quality at incredible framerates even with the newly added in-game ray tracing effects enabled, AMD said.

The next game to get FSR 2.2 was Need for Speed Unbound from Electronic Arts and Criterion Games, the latest game in this long-running and hugely popular street racing franchise.

Using FSR 2.2, gamers can experience the game’s new signature art style that blends street art with the most realistic-looking cars in Need for Speed history at higher framerates with incredible image quality.

Need for Speed Unbound launched with FSR 2.2 on December 2, 2022. Additionally, EA Play members have access to a 10-hour trial version and EA Play Pro members can dive into the full Palace Edition of the game. You can check out some 4K screenshots of the game with FSR 2.2 enabled below.

The third game that is getting FSR 2.2 is F1 22 from Electronic Arts and Codemasters. With FSR 2.2, gamers be able to take their virtual F1 racing experience to the next level with amazing framerates at high resolutions with ray tracing on and even in VR.

There is already support for FSR 1 in the game today and the update with FSR 2.2 will be available in January 2023.

Significantly, even though it only launched earlier this year, of that 226 games a large portion of them now support or will support FSR 2 – there are 97 available or upcoming games with support for FSR 2, and 54 of those games are available now for play, with the majority of them supporting FSR 2.1 or higher.
