GDC 2024 Announces AMD FSR 3.1, FSR 3 in 40 Games

When AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 3 (FSR 3) was released in September of last year, compatible games should see significant frame-rate boosts from the hardware. Their state-of-the-art open upscaling technology, AMD FSR 3, has been updated with new features such as a new “Native AA” quality setting for better picture quality and advanced frame generation technology for considerable framerate boosts in compatible games. It works with many different graphics cards made by AMD and other manufacturers.

In December 2023, AMD made the source code for AMD FSR 3 and its first two games, Forspoken and Immortals of Aveum, available to GPUOpen developers. To aid in smoother frame production, AMD FSR 3’s frame pacing was adjusted, and other variable refresh rate (VRR) technologies, such as AMD FreeSync, were supported. The game Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was the first to employ the enhanced FSR 3.

Since the start of 2024, the usage of AMD FSR 3 in games has increased substantially. Using FSR 3, a number of amazing games, like Starfield, The Last of Us Part I, Dragon: Infinite Wealth, and many more, have been updated or published. It raises the overall number of FSR 3 games that are now available and planned as of March 20, 2024 after just six months of its launch. The most current version of their improved frame generation and open upscaling technology, AMD FSR 3.1, was recently revealed at GDC 2024.

AMD has released FSR 3.1, which offers improved upscaling quality

Enhancing picture quality by upscaling:

Reduction of flickering, shimmering, and “fizziness” around moving objects; improved temporal stability at rest and in motion are some of the benefits of upscaling visual quality.
enhanced detail retention and a decrease in ghosting.

Disentangling frame creation from FSR 3 upscaling:

It is feasible to employ several upscaling techniques with FSR 3.1 frame producing technology by isolating the FSR 3 upscaling process from the frame production process.

New FidelityFX API from AMD:

The AMD FidelityFX API simplifies debugging and FSR update compatibility for developers.

Vulkan and Xbox GDK are supported.

The video that follows, which is our GDC 2024 FSR 3 presentation, has further details about FSR 3.1:

GPUOpen will provide AMD FSR 3.1 to developers in Q2, and games will integrate it later in the year.

There are a number of noteworthy additions, updates, and new features planned.
The game update will include FSR 3.1’s features, which may be utilized with other upscaling techniques. These features include enhanced temporal upscaling picture quality and the capacity to separate frame creation from upscaling. The upscaling enhancements of FSR 3.1 are shown in these Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart samples.

Advice on How to Utilize AMD FSR 3 Frame Generation

For the greatest possible high-quality gaming experience and to minimize any delay caused by the technology, it is highly encouraged to be operating at a minimum of ~60 FPS before deploying Frame Generation, as previously noted in their AMD FSR 3 papers. This holds true whether the new “Native AA” option or any other upscaling quality level is used with FSR 3 Frame Generation. AMD suggest you to adjust the visual settings, resolution, and FSR upscaling quality mode of a suitable game in order to help achieve this.

AMD Free Sync

When utilizing FSR 3 with a VRR display, AMD recommend that you maintain your framerate (with frame generation enabled) within the monitor’s refresh range to prevent screen tearing. To ensure this, you may try use V-Sync or the game’s integrated frame limiter; but, doing so can introduce latency and judder that is clearly evident.

Furthermore, we recommend turning on Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling (HAGS) in Windows 11 under Settings -> System -> Display -> Graphics Settings while using AMD FSR 3. HAGS is enabled in Windows 11 2022 Update when AMD Radeon RX 7900/7800/7700 Series Graphics Cards are utilized with AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition 23.12.1 or later.

AMD FSR 3 is now available and will be accessible in 40 games shortly

We introduced AMD FSR 3 in September of 2023. It could be played in the games Immortals of Aveum and Forspoken at the time. There were ten additional games that will soon be released. After just six months, an incredible forty titles are either already available or will be released shortly that support FSR 3.

The pace at which FSR 3 is being added to games has been steadily rising since the start of 2024. Some popular games include Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Farming Simulator 22, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, REMNANT II, Starfield, The Last of Us Part I, and The Thaumaturge. that have either debuted with FSR 3 or incorporated it lately. Below is a complete list of all 19 supported game titles as of March 20, 2024.
