AMD’s next-generation FidelityFX Super Resolution suite, FSR 3, was officially introduced at the Game Developers Conference GDC 2023. FSR 3 adds new frame interpolation technology to games and doubles performance.
AMD is bringing a similar feature to FSR 3, which AMD says generates interpolated frames via Motion Vectors and AMD Fluid Motion.
In terms of performance, AMD FSR 3 doubles the performance of FSR 2 at 4K resolution, and AMD showed a demo running Unreal Engine 5 with frame rates jumping from 60 FPS (FSR 2) to 112 FPS (FSR 3).
AMD said that games currently using FSR 2 integration will be very easy to migrate to FSR 3. FSR 3 will also be open source under the MIT license.
AMD has not announced an official release date for FSR 3, but it is expected to be available in the first half of 2023. According to the previous version strategy, FSR 3 frame inserts are also expected to be available for non-AMD graphics cards, so users with older Nvidia graphics cards can look forward to it.
Finally, AMD announced the FidelityFX SDK for game developers, which will be available in Q2 2023. The SDK comes with native backends for Vulkan and DirectX12, as well as a custom backend for AMD’s Cauldron.
AMD also announced three new FidelityFX effects: FidelityFX Depth of Field, FidelityFX Lens, and FidelityFX Blur.
