AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution image scaling technology will find its way into the Nintendo Switch game console. This follows a leaked user agreement stating that the upcoming Nintendo Switch Sports collection of sports games is licensed by AMD FidelityFX and FidelityFX Super Resolution.
Details on how AMD FSR support will be implemented on the Nintendo system are not included in the document. It can be assumed that the technology will be activated when connected to a TV if the console is to display an image in Full HD instead of HD resolution in portable mode.

The Nintendo Switch uses an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor with a graphics subsystem based on 256 Maxwell architecture CUDA cores. This platform does not support DLSS technology (an alternative to FSR). AMD FSR can be easily supported because it is an open standard that does not have any special hardware requirements.
Remember that AMD FSR technology support was previously included in the Steam Deck portable computer. The technology is built into the SteamOS operating system itself, on the basis of which the gadget works. In other words, AMD FSR can be activated for all games from the Steam library that are compatible with the Valve gaming device.
