AMD might be close to launching its competitor to DLSS. A new report claims that developers already have their hands on FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), and by the looks of it, it should release next month.
According to Coreteks, the developers who have access to AMD FSR have different versions of it, so some details regarding the technology might still be undecided. This also makes it harder to compare the performance uplift from AMD FSR with that of Nvidia DLSS, but developers considered the image quality and performance to be good overall.
Unlike DLSS, AMD FSR won't need training from a GAN and instead uses an algorithmic super sampling responsible for upscaling the image with minimal performance overhead. Moreover, the feature is introduced “early in the pipeline”, contrary to DLSS, which is implemented at the end.
The report also tells us the AMD FSR is relatively easy to implement and that it might be compatible with Nvidia GPUs, suggesting that the technology will be open-source. As for a release date, reports indicate a June launch.

KitGuru says: AMD's long-awaited DLSS alternative is making progress. Whether it ends up releasing next month still remains to be seen, but we'll hopefully see some announcements from AMD around E3.
