I have reached over 120 fps in Dota 2 by using a 9-yo GTX 650 with FSR on FHD, unbelievable. Also, the Image Quality is good. about 90% compared to the original

Really happy to hear you're able to get into the game with some high FPS. Know how important it is for esports titles.

This is a big big thing. When in the history of pc gaming does anyone give you free performance? Its like saying " download more ram for free performance".

Only this time its real.

Keep it up AMD!

ID: h2vw0io

cyberpunk when?!

ID: h2w1s05

Honestly, I'm terrified they'll half ass it and it'll give FSR a bad reputation lmao.

ID: h2vqwmx

we need FSR in Warzone

pls 🙂

Imagine every game using FSR implemented such way in dota2. All you had to do is turn on FSR and lower the slider until you get your desired fps instead of fix preset like ultra quality and so on.

ID: h2v8kvb

A slider would be great. I think for those of us sitting at 55fps and just want a few more to lock 60, the very first setting of ultra quality you saw on Gamers Nexus has a dramatic increase in performance but also a fair amount of lost pixels which translate to info for quality, id like to straddle that line to get 60 ya know.

ID: h2vn5vp

No Man's Sky implemented DLSS in the latest update, fingers crossed for them to implement FSR with a slider too.

ID: h2vomnc

Hello Games is one of the game developers mention on AMD's site as supporting FSR. So...

ID: h2vi538

Valve being valve, I'm sure they will share how they did it with AMD.

Presets aren't a bad thing but having a slider as well would be very powerful if it could be implemented in all engines that already do resolution sliders.

ID: h2vs71u

That's not a Valve-specific thing. FSR natively supports both fixed and arbitrary scaling.

4 : Anonymous2021/06/24 05:13 ID: h2urgsc

what value you used for the fsr slider?

ID: h2urk76

I set 60%

ID: h2urqpk

equivalent to fsr balanced.

5 : Anonymous2021/06/24 05:26 ID: h2usi2u

Wait, FSR works with Nvidia cards? That's pretty sweet. I've got a GTX 1060 as well as an AMD wx 7100 try this out on.

ID: h2ux9lm

Yep, go for it!

ID: h2v18wk

You guys are madlads. Thanks!

ID: h2vd22u

Do you know which games support it right now?

ID: h2vk7m4

Does it also work for older AMD cards like the fury and 390?

ID: h2uzwgs

Doesnt really use special hardware. Treat it like any other general processing effect. As long as the game supports it, itll probably run on a device that could at least run the game. AMD only claims RX400/GTX 1000 series or newer probably because they internally tested it. Everything else is YMMV, similar to how when nvidia lifted the compatability on freesync, using non nvidia certified freesync monitors was YMMV.

ID: h2v09gd

Freesync is another good example of why AMD deserves some love. This is coming from someone with a Nvidia GPU, but a freesync monitor that's compatible. It's pretty uncommon for a company to make a competitors product better like that.

ID: h2utayo

Bro, someone played with fsr on intel integrated graphics from i7 4th gen. It's insane.

ID: h2uvczn

Props to AMD for doing this. This is how you get people behind your brand.

ID: h2usk05

Yes, It worked

ID: h2ut35s


ID: h2uxiw4

It works on any GPU that can launch the game. However its only in DirectX11, DX12, and Vulkan titles so far. I don't know if it actually works on DX9 games or if companies just haven't implemented. I assume not many DX9 games would even are to add it though.

ID: h2vc0ha

I don't think anyone, who bought a graphic card that created in last 10 years, would have a problem in dx9 titles.

ID: h2uzvn8

Thanks. I have a 2070 and DLSS is about the only feature that I feel has put Nvidia over AMD. It's amazing seeing AMD giving older Nvidia GPUs new life that they weren't even willing to give themselves when they had the chance.

ID: h2vp7k2

It's gpu agnostic, it works on Intel GPUs too.

6 : Anonymous2021/06/24 11:34 ID: h2vhb36

Yes this is incredible. The only game I play is Dota 2 and I have a 4K monitor and used to have a GTX 1080 that I sold after 3 years for more than I bought it knew for. I couldn’t pass that opportunity up. I’ve been settling for using my old GTX 680 since and only playing at 1440p I can now run the game at 4K again on this ancient GPU. It doesn’t look as good as the 1080 running it natively at 4K but my goodness is is it close enough!

7 : Anonymous2021/06/24 08:33 ID: h2v5eax

Can anyone tell me if it works on Haswell/Skylake iGPU?

8 : Anonymous2021/06/24 14:16 ID: h2vy9a1

Love to hear it! Game on!

9 : Anonymous2021/06/24 11:33 ID: h2vh8xh

I must have been living under a rock, what is FSR?

10 : Anonymous2021/06/24 08:36 ID: h2v5l73

wait, is it already available for dota2? I thought it was still coming soon

ID: h2v6y0h

Yeh its already out along with the new battlepass

ID: h2vit7t

which is very surprising because there's Valve Time. I'm thinking it may actually be a lauch title but they can't get it in time so they needed the 3 extra days

11 : Anonymous2021/06/24 09:24 ID: h2v8fsx

How's the blur, though?

That's my main concern, I'm fortunate enough to have a pretty good GPU (GTX 1080), though I'm driving a 3440x1440 display and, as I learned, some less optimized titles, namely RDR2, run like trash regardless of settings - FSR would be an absolute saving grace assuming the blur isn't too bad.

ID: h2vil8l

Depends on the quality setting and your own tolerance to blur. I tried FSR in Riftbreaker with a GTX 1080 and a Samsung G9 @ 5120 x 1440.

For me, High Quality and Quality looks about the same as native. Textures are blurrier on balanced and performance but still acceptable during gameplay if you prefer more FPS over image quality.

ID: h2vdsd7

1080 gang here. I have 1440p main monitor, but my TV is 4k, so running games on that, at native res is kinda hard... No game I play supports it yet, but what I've heard ultra quality is +30% fps without noticiable quality drop...

ID: h2vlvi6

Although AMD doesn't recommend doing this, you can use the sharpening filter from your driver to eliminate some of the blur FSR brings. For me this worked fine so far in the titles that I could test.

12 : Anonymous2021/06/24 10:38 ID: h2vd7o4

I have gtx 950 mobile on 6 year old laptop. Would this work on this gpu?

ID: h2vijc0


13 : Anonymous2021/06/24 13:11 ID: h2vqkty

is FSR AMD's answer to Nvidia's DLSS?

ID: h2vxf8l

Yes but it works on any GPU pretty much.

14 : Anonymous2021/06/24 15:41 ID: h2w9iyp

FSR has revitalized my laptop. I use it for work but had to turn on PC for dota.. not anymore!

Can play at native res (1600*900) instead of 720p.. at 60fps

FSR is a godsend for low spec gamers.

I really wish it takes off hard. So far im very impressed.

Some games like apex and dota 2 you just dont care about visuals as long as the fps is steady.

Excellent job AMD!

15 : Anonymous2021/06/24 10:57 ID: h2veje3

MY next card will be an AMD. Go Team Red.

16 : Anonymous2021/06/24 09:54 ID: h2vab95

the official page says only these nvidia cards are supported
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 20 Series
NVIDIA® GeForce® 16 Series
NVIDIA® GeForce® 10 Series
does it also work on older cards?

ID: h2vffpr

From Dota 2 update page.

FidelityFX Super Resolution works on any GPU compatible with DirectX 11 or Vulkan.

ID: h2vdfie

It even works on some Intel IGP

ID: h2vi07y

Supported doesn't always mean only works with. Just that where it doesn't work there will be support.
