AMD Releases Radeon Adrenalin 21.6.1 Driver with FidelityFX Super Resolution

AMD FSR HotHardware

AMD has released the latest update for its Radeon Adrenalin driver, which includes the recently announced FidelityFX Super Resolution technology.

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) is the highly anticipated feature considered as the main competitor to Nvidia DLSS technology. FSR works similar to DLSS in which the technology upscales the image while preserving image quality, in turn, improving overall game performance. While Nvidia DLSS tech is only limited to its RTX series GPUs, AMD is bringing FSR to its current RX6000 series and older GPUs, including some Nvidia GPUs that don't officially support DLSS.

Since Nvidia has been in this game longer, its DLSS tech has improved over the years and the technology is now capable of delivering superior performance and incredible image quality. This is where AMD will need to work if it aims at offering tough competition to Nvidia. Despite that, AMD already has an upper hand which is the support for older-gen GPUs that Nvidia currently doesn't offer.

With the release of the Radeon Adrenalin 21.6.1 driver, a bunch of games will be adopting the FSR technology. However, game developers will also have to release game-specific updates to enable FSR in their games. Here is the list of games that currently supports AMD FSR:

  • 22 Racing Series
  • Anno 1800
  • Evil Genius 2: World Domination
  • Godfall
  • Kingshunt
  • Terminator: Resistance
  • The Riftbreaker

AMD has also announced the next batch of games that will support FSR upon release:

  • Asterigos
  • Baldur's Gate III
  • DOTA 2
  • Edge of Eternity
  • FarCry 6
  • Farming Simulator 22
  • Forspoken
  • Myst
  • Necromunda: Hired Gun
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Swordsman Remake
  • Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt

AMD also shared an FSR performance chart for Godfall, The Riftbreaker, and Terminator: Resistance. The company used the Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, RX 6700 XT, RX 6800M, and RX 580 GPUs for testing. Check out the chart below:
