God of War gets support for AMD FSR 2.0

epic adventure God of War (opens in new tab)is set to look a little more elegant on your PC as the game was recently updated to support FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 (opens in new tab).

FSR is AMD’s equivalent of Nvidia DLSS (opens in new tab), a set of technologies that dynamically scales images from a lower baseline resolution to match the screen’s native resolution. Basically, it takes some of the pressure off your GPU to run games at higher resolutions, allowing you to play at improved settings or a smoother frame rate with less of an impact on image quality. It can also help compensate for particularly demanding graphics technologies such as real-time ray tracing.

FSR 2.0 offers a noticeable improvement over FSR 1.0, with the switch from spatial upscaling to temporal upscaling (which scales up the image based on multi-frame data), bringing it much closer to the performance of Nvidia’s hitherto superior DLSS technology. . FSR can also be used with a much wider range of GPUs than DLSS, which requires you to own an RTX 20 series card or better. FSR 2.0 is more demanding than the previous version, however, with AMD recommending an RX 5700 XT or 6700 XT for 4k gaming, or a 6500XT for throwing axes at people in 1080p. You can read a more detailed breakdown of how FSR works in this article (opens in new tab).

I’m a big fan of upscaling technology. With graphics cards still being insanely expensive (although you can buy them now, which is something), DLSS and FSR can help extend the life of your current rig – particularly the latter, as it’s not tied to a limited number. of GPUs. That said, God of War is only the third game so far to add support for FSR 2.0, preceded by deathloop (opens in new tab)and, strangely, Agriculture Simulator 22 (opens in new tab). so it’s not This one still useful, although several other games are dropped to include the option soon, including Microsoft Flight Simulator (opens in new tab), Renegade (opens in new tab), Of punishment (opens in new tab)and EVE Online (opens in new tab).
