Radeon Super Resolution scaling technology increases FPS in games by up to 70%

AMD presented the scaling technology Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) at CES 2022. According to the company, it is supported in thousands of different games. The technology will be released as part of the Radeon Software Adrenaline Edition graphics driver before the end of the first quarter of 2022. The use of RSR promises great increases in performance in gaming projects.

The company posted a video on its YouTube channel claiming a 70% performance increase in games running Radeon Super Resolution when upscaling from 1440p to 4K.

The company has also previously shown promotional material that reported a 55% performance improvement in Warframe using RSR. When enabled, the game’s frame rate in native 4K resolution has been increased from 222 FPS to 346 FPS when using RSR.

Radeon Super Resolution technology is based on AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution scaling technology. Only in contrast to the latter, RSR is implemented at the driver level and does not require the support of game developers to implement it in games.

“Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) is a scaling feature built into the video driver and uses the same algorithm as our AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology. With Radeon Super Resolution, gamers can enjoy higher performance in any compatible game.explains AMD.

The RSR function can be activated in the Radeon software driver settings. Thereafter, if the resolution is decreased in the game itself, RSR will automatically scale the image to the native resolution of the monitor screen.

Radeon Super Resolution Technology is supported on AMD Radeon RX graphics cards from RX 5000 and newer models.
