AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution Technology

Frames per second are crucial when it comes to Gaming. However, many gamers want to turn on the latest visual technologies in some games to increase immersion. But turning on visual effects affects performance drastically. Due to work from a home model, there has been a rise in laptop sales as more and more people are preferring to buy performance-oriented laptops. So AMD is fully geared up to release their AMD FidelityFX technology for all the gamers as an answer to the Ray Tracing & DLSS by Nvidia. AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution (FSR) will provide a great gaming experience with cutting-edge super high-quality edges and a high pixel density. The FSR technology uses spatial upscaling technology to boost the performance and at the same time deliver high-quality visuals.

They also showed us a demo of Godfall with the same settings, + Nvidia’s Ray tracing was giving us 49 FPS. Still, when FSR was turned on, there was a sudden improvement of frames of over 59% at native 4K resolution without losing out on any details.

AMD promises to release the FidelityFX Super Resolution technology as open-source software so that all developers can use the software to develop the games. Apart from the 6000 series Graphics Cards, the technology will be available across the entire Radeon ecosystem with FSR support even in older GPUs like RX500 Series & the Vega Series and with all Ryzen processors with Radeon graphics. Not only that, since FSR is open-source software, it will be supported on older Nvidia graphics cards like the GTX 10 Series as well and will push out much better frame rates than the card itself with FSR turned on. With over 41% performance benefit, AMD did outshine its competition this time.

AMD Radeon RX 6000M series

AMD’s fidelity fx technology is AMD’s straight-up answer to Nvidia 2nd Generation Ray Tracing. And to compete with Nvidia’s latest RTX 3000 Series Graphics cards for laptops, AMD came up with their new Radeon RX6000M Graphics solution for Laptops. AMD plans to bring the next-gen RDNA 2 desktop architecture to low-powered devices like laptops.

They unveiled three Graphics chips for laptops: the Radeon RX 6800M, RX 6700M, and the RX 6600M. AMD also partnered up with various brands to design and optimize Gaming laptops under their AMD Advantage Design Framework initiative to provide the best possible gaming experience.

The RDNA 2 based Radeon 6000M Graphics card offers more than 50% performance jump while running at 43% less power over the last-gen RDNA. The RX 6800M is the fastest AMD Radeon Laptop GPU running at 145W with 12GB Graphics Memory and designed especially for 1440p and 120FPS Gaming. Next up, we have the 6700M, which will have 10GB of Graphics memory and is built for 1440p 100FPS, and the lowest end RX 6600M will feature 8GB of Video memory with a TDP of 100W and will cater to 1080p 100FPS Gaming.

Along with all those, AMD also implemented technologies like AMD Infinity Cache and Direct X Raytracing. The RX6000M Graphics card is already available and will be shipped with new laptops from ASUS, Lenovo, MSI, and other OEMs in the industry.
