Nintendo Switch will soon support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

Due to their compact size, portable consoles tend to have weaker hardware, so developers have to find other methods to run games with better visuals at stable frame rates. One way is using upscaling technologies like AMD FSR, which could soon be implemented in a number of Nintendo Switch games. 

Nintendo Switch Sports, a sequel to Wii Sports, is currently undergoing playtesting ahead of release and as a result, there have been some leaks. Twitter user, @NWPlayer123, got their hands on documentation that comes with the game. In the user agreement, we can see that Nintendo has permission from AMD to use FidelityFX Super Resolution 1.0 (FSR), making this the first Switch game to support the technology.

The Nintendo Switch uses an Nvidia Tegra chip, but as an open-source technology, FSR can be adapted to work. It is possible that eventually Nintendo also works on getting support for Nvidia's own Image Sharpening technology.

We hope to see AMD FSR in action once Nintendo Switch Sports releases on April 29th.

KitGuru says: Do you think we will see other Switch games using AMD FSR? Which games would you like to see using AMD's upscaling technology?
