ohh yes This is a big deal because it supports APU!

ID: h06d9mr

It'll be amazing for small PCs with an APU and Laptops

ID: h07v39s

Honestly, I think the results will be the worst when running in low resolution, low FPS situations. Will have to see what the actual implementation will look like on 22nd.

Well it also gives less reasons to upgrade to Radeon so double edged sword. (not like they have anything to sell right now)

ID: h064i77

That's true, but Nvidia has about an 80% share of the GPU market, so it hurts their competitor more than it does them, and the 1060 is the most common card, as he said. If you can get 1060/1070/1080 owners who are more likely to upgrade to Nvidia than AMD to put off their upgrade thanks to an AMD technology, some may switch to AMD once they do upgrade (especially if AMD has closed the raytracing gap in the meantime).

That comment is missing.

ID: h06xtcm

Oh. Maybe the number of external links caused it to be flagged by the bots or something. I thought that it was strange that no one was upvoting it. Thanks for the notice. I've added a couple of the images to my post above. Hopefully, that doesn't cause a problem, too.

I am very curious how the two technologies stack up against each other. Competition is great.

ID: h06k69o

yeah... about that.

ID: h076xvr

I'd say we should absolutely temper our expectations, but its worth noting that the original image looks absolutely fucked as is, its likely thats affecting the end quality, once again AMD screws the pooch on marketing.

ID: h082jdf

Both sides of that image look absolutely horrible TBH. Ridiculously overdone motion blur.

Isn't Tarkov CPU limited?

ID: h05nn3s

It looks like shit lol

ID: h06px21

It kinda does honestly

ID: h05p9hg

There is an ultra quality mode as well, this isn't the highest

ID: h063903

It's still the second highest...

ID: h05pfjy

I know most people are going to meme be this the differences between 27 fps 38 fps is the same difference between unplayable and playable respectively.

ID: h0682m3

Playing on high + native will look much better trying to upscale max settings and lose half the details in the process. I hope they were underselling the feature because it doesn't look good. At least not in this game or at this stage.

ID: h0811iv

Bruh that looks like ass

ID: h05svn7

That....looks bad.....

In stills it should look closer than that. Maybe jpg is the issue.

ID: h06051m

The guy replied to me that he pulled these slides straight from the press briefing and saved them in jpeg 100 quality.

ID: h05oyq1

This is on a GTX 1060 @ 1440p with heavy motion blur on this frame. Cherry pickers gonna pick. Show me the DLSS shot on an rx 580. I'll wait.

ID: h065n3y

I mean, AMD cherry picked this. I dont know why to be honest. Even with motion blur you can clearly see the difference... Why not disabling the motion blur if we cant see what they are supposed to show?

ID: h06gwo0

Is that your argument? That there is no dlss on amd cards so ANYTHING else is better than nothing at all?

ID: h06ar0o

Not sure which is worse, the TAA artifacts on the left or the super bad blur on the right.

ID: h082yo1

I'd have to go with the blur personally... It's like the very worst implementations of Nvidia TXAA from games that came out in 2013 - 2014 or so, but times a billion

ID: h05vl7e

Question is, is it because its a GTX 1060? Definitely doesn't look quality, but wonder if the vendor of that specific example is at fault. I wholly expect it'll take time to mature just like DLSS.

ID: h074soc

If the image quality depends on the brand/GPU, then they should fire whoever used a 1060 to showcase this feature. The point was to sell it, not leave most of us dubious. Now the best outcome is that AMD's marketing is incompetent and FSR actually looks better than here, which isn't exactly comforting.

ID: h06iefr

I think we all knew it wasn't going to match DLSS2.0, but this isn't great. However, I will withold judgement until I see it in action and everyone can see it in action.

10 : Anonymous2021/06/01 03:47 ID: h05mosn

I sure hope image quality ends up being good. Though I am somewhat concerned about how "quality mode" looks. It looks a lot like DLSS 1.0.

ID: h066l0j

To be fair, AMD still themselves have a long road to making their FSR as good as DLSS. This is still new tech to them.

ID: h06jzwy

They don't need to make FSR better themselves.
I am pretty sure Microsoft, Sony and Vulkan will take care of that once they adopt it into their SDKs.
Don't forget. Its Open Source and the Game Devs have the Possibility to contribute Improvements back to the Original Codebase. Something that is impossible with DLSS.

quality mode yet image isnt sharp.. a play right out of frank azor's book

12 : Anonymous2021/06/01 08:31 ID: h0680j1

This is super exciting. It's worse than DLSS 2.0 but its available on way more of the market, so it has the potential to take over as the main priority for both!

13 : Anonymous2021/06/01 07:51 ID: h065hn1

So, from the clearest example image given, it looks like DLSS 1.0 level, and likely only the top "Ultra Quality" setting will be worth using.

The image on the right is so much worse than the native that it makes me wonder if native 1080p would actually look better and perform better too (since 1440p is 78% more pixels than 1080p).

Guess we're going to have to wait for independent image quality analysis from people like Hardware Unboxed and Gamers Nexus.

I'm so sad by the news that RX 400 GPU series won't support FSR, but RX 500 series will take it.

I think unfair this restriction on such similar GPUs (Polaris 11/20, GCN 4.0).

ID: h05nbnn

Dude it probably will, it supports a 1060, they just didn’t want to name every single architecture and model

ID: h05qg48

they never mention 400 anymore because 500 was a refresh, i assume 400 is supported if nvidia is........

ID: h05qurs

Go to

I don't see RX 4XX checkboxes (even in RX 500 Series category), but i see Radeon VII in RX Vega series.

That's strange...

ID: h05r386

I think 470 and 480 will be supported, there are 400 series non polaris cards so they cant say all 400 series.

ID: h07xexd

I honestly don't see why pretty much any GCN card and newer wouldn't be supported. Will have to see what happens on the actual day of release.

16 : Anonymous2021/06/01 06:12 ID: h05ys8r

Can this be ran with Radeon Image Sharpening? If yes the image quality can still be improved significantly.

ID: h06qnyy

This is what I want to know, normally RIS at 80%, if I knew a game was smudgy like this I could bump it up to 100%

18 : Anonymous2021/06/01 07:42 ID: h064yxo

DLSS + FideliyFX = Unlimited FPS

19 : Anonymous2021/06/01 08:26 ID: h067qlv

Would be amazing to see both of them working in tandem.

20 : Anonymous2021/06/01 08:47 ID: h0690o5

Throw in checkerboarding as well!

21 : Anonymous2021/06/01 22:06 ID: h08sdx6

Wouldn’t that not make sense ? Like yea a game can support both but I don’t think you can actively have both enabled

AMD: «Did you ever hear the story of Darth DLSS the upscaler?»

NVIDIA GTX 1060: «no»

AMD: «I thought not. It's not a story the NVIDIA would tell you. It's a Sith legend. DLSS was a Dark Lord of Deep Learning, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to use algorithms to upscale frames... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the GPUs he cared about from suffering FPS drops with RTX ON.
The dark side of Deep Learning is a pathway to many algorithms some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was having a restricted user base, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he told his rival AMD of the power he had, then his rival learned it and made a competing algorithm while NVIDIA suffered because of the shortage.
Ironic, he could save GPUs from FPS drops, but not his own GTX series.»

NVIDIA GTX 1060: «Is it possible to learn this power?»

AMD: «Not from NVIDIA.»

When will this be available on Xbox Series X?

27 : Anonymous2021/06/01 14:17 ID: h071v5p

That's on Microsoft and Sony to disclose. It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't talk about it and just implemented it though.

28 : Anonymous2021/06/01 18:11 ID: h07xjag

The day AMD releases it to game devs, has nothing to do with the consoles themselves.

29 : Anonymous2021/06/01 10:44 ID: h06gp49

Awesome! I don't expect a miracle but at least my RX470 (IF supported) could reach 60 fps on some new games

30 : Anonymous2021/06/01 13:08 ID: h06tnov

For what descrete gpu's will this be available?

31 : Anonymous2021/06/01 16:17 ID: h07hs03

probably a better start than DLSS 1.0 but a far cry from DLSS 2.0

We gonna have to wait for RX 7000 series and FSR 2.0

32 : Anonymous2021/06/01 16:36 ID: h07khjj

AMD already has better then DLSS 1.0 quality upscaling with CAS over a year and a half ago.

33 : Anonymous2021/06/01 18:04 ID: h07wkp6

To be fair, CAS was a competitor to Nvidia's Sharpening filter which also released like a year ago, not DLSS.

34 : Anonymous2021/06/01 18:21 ID: h07yvse

do yall know how or when ill be able to download that on my gtx 1060 ?

35 : Anonymous2021/06/01 19:27 ID: h087upb

Did they give a reason why they'd support RX 5xx but not RX 4xx? The 5xx was just a 4xx refresh.... Hell, they're supporting the GTX 1060 which was the RX 480 competitor...

36 : Anonymous2021/06/01 19:52 ID: h08b4nf

Flight Simulator would be a good title with this implemented
