A new report shows that AMD’s DLSS counterpart- FidelityFX Super Resolution, might be on track for release in March with a new Radeon driver update.

The feature was first announced alongside the reveal of the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, built on the RDNA 2 architecture. Essentially, it’s AMD’s own way of boosting framerates when ray tracing features, which are performance-intensive, are turned on. The RX 6000 GPUs launched without the feature which put them at a major disadvantage to NVIDIA’s RTX graphics cards.

At launch, the ray tracing performance of the RX 6000 cards were relatively comparable to NVIDIA’s, at least if you didn’t turn on DLSS. You can read more about their performance, specifically the Radeon RX 6800 XT in our review.

The new report on FidelityFX Super Resolution releasing in March comes from Prohardver, who also claim that an update to Radeon Boost is coming in the same driver update. Radeon Boost is AMD’s performance-enhancing feature which uses dynamic resolution scaling during fast movement. They also point to the new Infinite Cache present on the Radeon RX 6000 series being a driving factor in making Super Resolution work properly.

While FidelityFX Super Resolution is a much-anticipated feature which might level the playing field in gaming, AMD’s lack of support on other features still drive down the value of their graphics cards. With NVIDIA, you don’t only get DLSS (which is still implemented on a per-game basis), but NVIDIA Broadcast which has its own unique uses.

We’ll keep an eye out for AMD’s official announcement regarding the feature.
