CapFrameX: AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 to be announced soon

It looks like the upcoming GDC 2022 session about next-gen upscaling technologies might indeed give us a glimpse of the future FSR technology.

The developer of CapFrameX benchmarking and monitoring software claims to have seen the footage from the FSR 2.0 demo. This would be the first time a demo of AMD’s next-gen upscaling technology is mentioned.

According to the tweet, the FSR 2.0 is based on temporal upscaling, which would be a major shift from the current implementation of FSR. Interestingly, unlike XeSS and DLSS, no AI-acceleration would be required. This means that the technology could work with a wider range of GPUs. The developer claims it would be supported by all vendors, but does not mention which GPU architectures specifically.

The announcement of FSR 2.0 was not expected till at least RDNA3 architecture release, now planned for Q3/Q4 based on the leaks. However, with no requirement for AI acceleration, the technology might be supported by shader cores, possibly using similar instruction like Intel XeSS (DP4a).

In two weeks at Game Developer Conference 2022, AMD will be hosting a session called “Next-Generation Image Upscaling for Games”. Assuming that the tweet and this GDC presentation are related, then we might see the first demo of the technology.

However, one should note that GDC requires registration. According to AMD though, all GDC sessions will be available a day later, on March 24th 4PM GMT on GPUOpen website.
