AMD partners with Samsung and Qualcomm: Bringing FSR technology to future smartphones
In recent years, with the widespread adoption of FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), many gamers have become quite familiar with the technology, which is now supported by numerous PC games. FSR appears poised to extend its reach beyond desktops and laptops, potentially making its way into the smartphone sector.
It has been revealed by netizens that AMD is collaborating with Samsung and Qualcomm to introduce FidelityFX Super Resolution technology into upcoming smartphones. Both Samsung and Qualcomm are eager to integrate this technology to compete with Apple’s MetalFX and Nvidia’s DLSS. It is reported that Samsung has decided to pair FidelityFX Super Resolution with ray tracing capabilities to serve their Galaxy smartphone series.
Unlike Nvidia’s DLSS, AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution is compatible with a wide range of GPUs, including those of competitors, making it particularly suitable for the mobile domain. It is anticipated that this feature will debut in flagship smartphones. Since Samsung has already employed AMD’s RDNA series architecture GPU IP in their Exynos chips, incorporating FidelityFX Super Resolution seems a natural progression. With the release of “Resident Evil 8: Village” for iPhone/iPad, Qualcomm may feel a heightened sense of competition and is looking to enhance the gaming performance of its high-end SoCs with FidelityFX Super Resolution, thereby consolidating its GPU performance edge.
For devices based on Arm and Android, the use of FidelityFX Super Resolution is undoubtedly a milestone event. As the collaboration between AMD, Samsung, and Qualcomm deepens, we can expect to hear more related developments in the coming months.
