Game developers can now access select AMD FidelityFX effects with specific optimizations for Windows® and Xbox.

The story is too old to be commented.

I saw AMD FidelityFX logo on the RE8 PS5 demo comparisons.

Interesting that the article doesn't mention it is also available on PS5.

RazzerRedux190d ago

That's because this is a press release from a Microsoft event:

"News from the Graphics Keynote at Microsoft® Game Stack Live"

Maybe this explains how PS5 is nearly hitting 60 FPS locked with RT. I wonder if RE8 also supports DLSS. The next great GFX battle between AMD/Nvidia may be underway.

Fishy Fingers190d ago (Edited 190d ago )

DLSS is Nvidia so if it is, will be PC. FidelityFX being the AMD "equivalent" (I use the term generously), would be interesting to see how they compare.

Edit: Capcom partnered with AMD so I guess its unlikely, at least for a while

Eonjay190d ago

@Fishy Fingers

Yes RE8 partnered with AMD. This is something you see Nvidia do all the time that you don't see AMD doing enough.

NeoGamer232190d ago

Yup, just like in the Unreal Engine next gen demo there was no mention of XB and in the Sony MLB blog there is no mention of the XB version of the game.

These are examples of how marketing is becoming more and more about ignoring what you don't want people to hear. And more about trumpeting what you want people to hear.

Gamers need to be awake and realize that these are companies are trying to push only their products. They don't want you to buy someone else's products. Gamers have to be critical and look through the marketing fluff no matter which vendor is spewing it.

There’s currently no word if AMD is adding this tech to Ps5 from most if not all sources.

This technology same as their VRS technique is another feature AMD worked closely with Microsoft to create that I just don’t see them investing in to make available everywhere day one.

RazzerRedux190d ago

This tech is explicitly licensed for use in the PS5 version of RE 8 as it was listed in the game demo.

i3eyond the Circle190d ago (Edited 190d ago )

There’s a few features in FidelityFX that are open source that are on the Ps5. But FSR.. is not on Ps5. Every article released the past 12 hours details this.. just google..

AMD fidelityfx super resolution Ps5

It may come down the line but not now.

RazzerRedux190d ago (Edited 190d ago )

"There’s a few features in FidelityFX that are open source that are on the Ps5."

This entire article is about the FidelityFX "open source" features. First sentence:

"We have always believed that our AMD FidelityFX family of effects should be accessible: truly open source, free to modify, highly optimized, and cross-platform."

This was never specifically about FSR and the article doesn't specifically reference it at all.

Every article google returns says FSR is coming to Xbox and PS. Nothing more. But feel free to point to the one that says otherwise.

"Literally every article released and still currently breaking says the contrary."

Where? Please post a link. I'd like to read it.

i3eyond the Circle190d ago (Edited 190d ago )

Literally every article released and still currently breaking says the contrary even from that link...

You right tho.

Click the link you provided...Hit Top Stories...then...More News. And the top articles are there TechRadar, MP1st, NotebookCheck, PC Gamer, WCCfTech...

It’s all there man you provided it.

RazzerRedux190d ago (Edited 190d ago )

"But FSR.. is not on Ps5."

The articles say there is "no word" on PS5. "no word" doesn't mean FSR is not on PS5. It means Sony/AMD haven't made any such announcement. This is all speculation, nothing more.

Christopher190d ago

@Razzer shouldn't have to work this hard to educate people.

Eonjay190d ago

Fidelity SR is on every RDNA platform. Period. This is coming from AMD.

Bruh189d ago

What? lol they have literally the same GPU with the only difference being Microsoft opting more more CUs why would the PS5 not support it?

gravedigger189d ago (Edited 189d ago )

Sony can use different names of toolkits for their own PS API which are also available on DX12, Vulkan....
Also, Sony can build their own type of FidelityFX incorporating its custom Geometry Engine

Why would MS mention Sony at an Xbox event as that would be like complaining that Sony don't mention Xbox at a PS event

Cool. Glad this tech is gaining traction.

frostypants189d ago

Get out of here with your non-controversial comment. Seriously, who downvotes this?

bangoskank189d ago (Edited 189d ago )

I have a 6800xt card so I admit I'm a little biased. Ha!

Ryushaa190d ago

People just have to realize there is nothing new here, only that the already available FidelityFX is now usable on Xbox. Just read carefully the article people.
NO DLSS competitor here.
From the article: "... Contrast Adaptive Sharpening, Variable Shading, and Raytraced Shadow Denoiser technologies are available."

Notellin190d ago

AMD Super Resolution is coming after this update.

Sayai jin190d ago

Cool. I am glad this is available for Xbox and PS.

alb1899189d ago

In the moment just on XBOX.

curtain_swoosh189d ago

no, Returnal apparently uses it too. and thats on ps5.

RazzerRedux189d ago (Edited 189d ago )

Incorrect. It is being used on PS as well. This was announced at a Microsoft event and so they are only talking about Xbox.
