AMD announces FSR3 with frame generation for HYPR-RX
AMD had a surprise announcement at Gamescom, not only did the company introduce Radeon RX 7800XT and RX 7700XT, provided an update on FSR3 launching this fall, the company also confirmed FSR3 will be integrated into HYPR-RX.
The HYPR-RX should require no introduction because we mentioned it a few times, but not for a good reason. AMD promised to launch HYPR-RX tech in the first half of this year, which is sadly not the case. Officially this technology will launch in the first half of September, and it will be part of the latest Adrenalin GPU driver update.
The HYPR-RX integrated three technologies into one easy to use one-click solution: Anti-Lag+, Radeon Boost and Radeon Super Resolution. The latter has now been confirmed to be supported by Frame Generation, or how AMD calls it AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF). This is essentially a technology that adds fully generated frames and, as results can boost performance significantly, the same way NVIDIA DLSS3 does.
The major announcement today is that AMD FSR3’s frame generation will be integrated into HYPR-RX, it has been promised to be launched around Q1 next year. AMD has already developed this technology and confirmed it is is indeed working in the labs; however, it will take time for further optimizations.
This signifies that Fluid Motion Frames will operate at a driver level, eliminating the need for game developer optimizations. AMD showcased this technology, demonstrating a significant performance enhancement on the RX 7800 XT, increasing FPS from 73 to 178 once the new HYPR-RX feature is activated.
Nevertheless, before AFMF’s integration into HYPR-RX, the performance boost will be somewhat reduced, although still remarkable. This straightforward solution can be activated through AMD’s software without the necessity of scouring game settings for options. However, it remains unclear how this will function when both HYPR-RX and FSR are simultaneously enabled in a game.
As mentioned, HYPR-RX will launch in September, while the Fluid Motion Frame update will be released by the end of Q1 2024. AMD HYPR-RX technology will only work with Radeon GPUs because it is part of the Radeon GPU driver software.
Editor’s Note: We updated the story to reflect that HYPR-RX does not work with non-Radeon GPUs.
