When AMD announced FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) at Computex 2021, the company also revealed a list of compatible Radeon graphics cards, ending with the 4 year old RX 580 and RX 570. As it turns out, RX 400 series graphics cards will also be supported.
The announcement was made on AMD’s official subreddit by an AMD representative. Considering that both the RX 580 and RX 570 are basically overclocked versions of the RX 480 and the RX 470, it was only logical for AMD to add them to the list.
The AMD GPUs included in the list are the Radeon RX 6000 series, the RX 5000 series, the RX 500 series, the Vega series, and now the RX 480 and RX 470. It’s unclear if the RX 560 and RX 550 are included in the “RX 500 series” part of the list.
Besides AMD GPUs, the AMD FSR will also be compatible with Nvidia GPUs, starting with the GTX 10 series and above. Hopefully, Intel GPUs may also support AMD’s upscaling technology once they release.
AMD will release FSR to the public on June 22nd.
KitGuru says: We don’t know how well FSR will perform up against Nvidia’s DLSS alternative. However, one thing is clear, AMD is winning in regards to GPU compatibility, with support for the feature extending to 5-year old graphics cards while also being vendor agnostic.
