Nintendo Switch Sports will support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

Nintendo announced at the face-to-face meeting on February 10 that the Nintendo Switch Sports game will be launched on the Nintendo Switch and will be released on April 29. The new game adds football, badminton, volleyball, and golf in the fall.

Recently, Twitter user @NWPlayer123 discovered that AMD FidelityFX and FidelityFX Super Resolution licenses are found in the user agreement for Nintendo Switch Sports, but do not explain how they are used in the game. Depending on how the technology is used and where the Nintendo Switch is used, it’s likely to be used in higher resolution TV models.

The Nintendo Switch uses the NVIDIA Tegra X1 SoC, and the CPU part is four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores. The GPU uses the Maxwell architecture with 256 CUDA cores and 4GB of LPDDR4-3200 memory. This chip of Nvidia does not support DLSS technology, although Nvidia also provides NIS technology, it is rumored that Nintendo chose a more complex implementation method.

Currently, Valve has enabled FidelityFX Super-Resolution for Steam Deck. This is a technology that uses low-resolution images for multi-frame composition and turns low-resolution rendered images into high-resolution images to improve game performance. Although there have been rumors that the Nintendo Switch will have an upgraded version with a stronger SoC, there is no real evidence so far. Perhaps FidelityFX Super Resolution is a more realistic solution.

Nintendo Switch Sports will be tested online from February 18th to 20th and will be officially released on April 29th.
