AMD's FSR 2.0 (FidelityFX Super Resolution) frame rate boosting feature that uses time scaling will be coming to Hitman 3 and many other games in the not-too-distant future.
Team Red has just published a blog post (opens in a new tab) revealing five new games that will support FSR 2.0, including Hitman 3 as mentioned, as well as Abyss World, Rescue Party: Live, Super People, and The Callisto. Protocol.
AMD also reminded us of 11 other games that will receive FSR 2.0 in the future, and that includes Microsoft Flight Simulator, Eve Online, and Forspoken (when it launches later in the year; this will also be the first game to support DirectStorage, in particular).
The complete list of 16 games compatible with FSR 2.0 is as follows:
- abyssal world
- eve online
- Settled down
- hitman 3
- Microsoft Flight Simulator
- Ni Shui Han
- perfect world remake
- Rescue Party: Live
- good people
- New version of the swordsman
- The Callisto Protocol
- Unknown 9: Awakening
FSR 2.0 uses temporal scaling, which is a big improvement over FSR 1.0, which used spatial scaling. The difference is that with temporal, FSR pulls data to do its magic not only from the current frame in the game, but also from previous frames, just like Nvidia DLSS does, and that makes the image scale better in terms of quality.
Review: Impressive progress, and FSR 1.0 games are yet to come
With those 16 games on the way and three titles already benefiting from the improved technology, that's 19 games in total that have brought or are incorporating FSR 2.0.
In case you missed it, the launch game with FSR 2.0 was Deathloop, and since then we've seen the technology make its way to God of War and Farming Simulator 22. AMD has also provided new benchmarks for these latest games, showing For example, God of War at 4K 'ultra' on an RX 6950 XT achieved 66 frames per second (fps) by default. This increased significantly to 96fps with FSR 2.0 in performance mode and 83fps with FSR 2.0 in quality mode (for the best enhanced image quality, which closely resembles native 4K).
It's good to see that FSR 2.0 is making commendable progress in raw terms, although it's fair to say that a significant portion of the games integrated are darker affairs, there are still a few big names in the mix.
Interestingly, support for FSR 1.0 is still advertised with some games, AMD notes that this is because the developers in question started working on integrating the technology some time ago. These games getting FSR 1.0 include Arma Reforger, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, iRacing, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online, and V Rising.
So yes, Hitman 3 does support FSR 1.0 and 2.0, which gives people a choice, with FSR 1.0 being less taxing on GPUs (for lower results of course), but that means those with a card lower graphics that is below hardware recommendations. for FSR 2.0 you still have an option to fall back on to increase the frame rate.
