3DMark Joins Forces with AMD FSR 2 for Cutting-Edge Performance Analysis

AMD announced that UL Benchmarks will update 3DMark to incorporate functionality testing for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2), which will be released as a complimentary update. This feature should have been implemented earlier, as 3DMark has long provided NVIDIA DLSS functionality testing and added Intel XeSS functionality testing in October 2022. Now, the three major super-resolution technologies are finally consolidated.

To utilize this feature, any GPU that supports DirectX 12 and FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 is required, including AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel graphics cards. Gamers can evaluate FidelityFX Super Resolution 2’s performance efficiency on their hardware, with the software supporting various FSR 2 quality profiles and resolutions. Furthermore, a side-by-side comparison tool is provided, contrasting FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 and native rendering resolutions with Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA) enabled.

According to the official description, the FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 functionality test employs a scene from the Speed Way DirectX 12 Ultimate benchmark test. The test runs twice, initially with native rendering resolution and TAA enabled, followed by rendering at a lower resolution in FSR 2 mode. The tool then furnishes frame rate information for each mode and the degree of difference for FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 on a specific system.

The FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 functionality test is now available as a free update to all 3DMark Advanced and Professional Edition users. The sole exception applies to users who purchased before October 12, 2022, who must buy an upgrade to unlock the Speed Way benchmark test and FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 functionality test.
