AMD FSR3 now available in Forspoken
The latest update, patch 1.22, has just been rolled out for Forspoken, and it introduces support for FSR3.
Today marks the official release of a patch that fulfills AMD’s promise to introduce FSR3, AMD’s advanced temporal upscaling technology today. FSR3 incorporates Motion Fluid Frames, also known as Frame Generation technology, akin to DLSS3.
According to the patch notes, Frame Generation in FSR3 will be compatible with Radeon RX 5000, NVIDIA RTX 20, and Intel Arc A7 GPUs. For other GPU architectures, they will support the new upscaling components of FSR3 but will not include Frame Generation.
Square Enix has already identified the first known issue with FSR3, which relates to a reduction in framerate on monitors with a refresh rate of 240Hz or higher. This problem appears to arise when both FSR3 FG and V-Sync are activated, and it is recommended to disable V-Sync in such instances.
- Updated the game to support AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 3.
FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 3 combines temporal upscaling and frame generation to deliver significantly higher performance.
Frame generation is enabled separately from upscaling and is available when using AMD Radeon™ RX 5000 Series, NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 20 Series, and Intel® Arc™ 7 Series or newer GPUs. (Upscaling is still available to use on GPUs older than the products mentioned.)
- Added a new NativeAA quality mode option.
Native AA mode does not apply upscaling but applies high-quality anti-aliasing and sharpening.
- Added Frame Generation settings to the Graphics section of the menu.
- Fixed an issue causing the save data for the main game to appear in the DLC’s save data slot and the save data for the DLC to appear in the main game’s save data slot. (Steam version)
This fix only applies to newly created save data.
- Low frame rates can be experienced on some 240Hz and higher refresh rate monitors, when FSR3 Frame Generation and VSync are enabled.
To remediate this issue, make sure you are using the latest drivers from your video card manufacturer. You can also disable VSync, or set your monitor refresh rate to less than 240Hz.
The 30MB patch is now available on Steam. If your hardware supports it, you can start utilizing this technology immediately. As no early access was granted to the media, there won’t be any day-one coverage with detailed information from them. Please share your experiences with FSR3 in the comments section and let us know how it performs for you.
Update: AMD has provided the following charts demonstrating performance of FSR3 with and without Frame Generation support:
