  • First Games to Use AMD's FSR 2.0 Upscaling Announced

    First Games to Use AMD's FSR 2.0 Upscaling Announced

    Besides Deathloop.

    In June 2021, AMD launched the 1.0 release of what they call FidelityFX Super Resolution. This was kind of AMD's answer to Nvidia's DLSS technology, except it did not require the use of special hardware and could be used by graphics cards dating back several generations. FSR allows users to upscale an image to provide them with better performance while still looking kind of good.

    FSR 1.0 isn't perfect, nor does it do as good a job as DLSS, but it did...

    More hardware that will be in short supply that you will never get to buy.

    CES 2022 is underway, though there really isn't much of an "in-person" presence this year. Even still, some new tech was announced on the first day that was worth sharing. AMD and Nvidia both announced new releases of their current lineup of Radeon and GeForce cards respectively. Intel announced its first generation of Arc series GPUs.

    AMD Releases Fix for Windows 11 Bug that Impacted Ryzen Performance

    This is just one part of the fix however.

    Earlier this month, it became apparent that there were some issues with AMD Ryzen performance when using Windows 11. In fact, these issues were present since some of the earliest betas for Windows 11 but they largely went ignored until the operating system's first public release. Some testing showed that system performance could decrease by roughly 15% compared to the same hardware running on Windows 10. At the time, AMD and Microsoft said...

    Windows 11 Causes AMD CPUs to Lose Performance

    Fixes are in the works, but are not out yet.

    If you are using an AMD based CPU and you plan on upgrading to Windows 11, you may want to hold off on that for a little while longer. Hell, I still say that you avoid Windows 11 regardless of your CPU for a good year or more if you can help it as it's just not in a good state right now.

    But if you're moving forward with Windows 11 despite this warning, you should be aware that you may experience reduced system performance by...

    Valve Teamed Up with AMD and Qualcomm to Create Faster Wi-Fi Technology

    The new tech is called Wi-Fi Dual Station and it's been designed for gamers.

    If you are at all serious about playing games competitively online, chances are you've been told that a wired Internet connection is the way to go. The main reason comes down to the increased latency and potential packet loss that comes with Wi-Fi connections. Now, thanks to the efforts of Valve, AMD, Qualcomm, and a few other companies, Wi-Fi might just be a very viable alternative.

    These companies...

    Windows 11 Dated for October 5

    Yeah, it's coming in hot.

    Microsoft announced that Windows 11 will be released on October 5. As expected, this new release will be available as a free upgrade for those who are using eligible Windows 10 PCs, or those that purchase new hardware with Windows 11 pre-installed. Though I suppose if you're buying new hardware, that doesn't make the Windows 11 upgrade "free" but I digress.

    As with most updates from Microsoft, the free upgrade will be released in phases....

    Assuming "everyone" is playing these select titles on PC.

    Just as they promised, AMD has launched their FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) feature today for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs.

It is designed to boost framerates and allow for "high-quality, high-resolution gaming experiences" in titles that support it.

    AMD's DLSS Competitor - FidelityFX Super Resolution - Launches June 22

    The technology is not locked to AMD cards either.

In short, this technology upscales gameplay from lower resolutions to provide performance benefits at higher resolutions. In some cases, it may even enhance the image quality.

    AMD is going a slightly different route than Nvidia on this one. Nvidia...
