At the Navi launch event, AMD made a big fuss about their new sharpening technique called FidelityFX. It is a contrast adaptive sharpening algorithm that helps to highlight the finer details of an image/graphic and is supposed to do so without introducing artifacts. Unlike Radeon Image Sharpening, FidelityFX requires per game implementation which can make its adoption a little challenging. Nonetheless, AMD is making decent progress since Ubisoft’s upcoming tactical shooter Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the sequel to Wildlands is set to become the fourth title to use this feature. Ubisoft released a PC Features’ overview trailer on YouTube which highlights all such features and optimizations in the game.
The inclusion of “Full PC Optimisation” and “Ultra Graphics PC MODE” in this features’ trailer is kind of hilarious since optimizing a game is not really something to tout about as a standalone feature. Something more noteworthy is the support for Multi-monitor and Ultrawide setup which can enhance the immersion of a player.
Other notable PC features include
- Discord Support
- Gameplay & Menu Eye tracking with
- Standalone benchmark,
and last but not the least
- FidelityFX integration for high fidelity image production.
You will be able to access the Beta version from the 5th of September via Uplay with the full release scheduled to be on the 4th of October.
