AMD recently released a Far Cry 6 featurette where the chipmaker showed off some of the technologies that went into making the game. The most interesting part of the video shows how FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) provides a very substantial performance uplift in the game.
Far Cry 6 is an AMD title after all so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the developers have optimized the game for AMD Ryzen processors and Radeon graphics card. Far Cry 6 is part of AMD’s latest ‘Raise the Game’ bundle and comes as a free copy for customers who bought an eligible AMD-powered system.
AMD didn’t share the specifications for the system that was running Far Cry 6 in the video nor did the chipmaker detail the graphics setting that was used. Without FSR, the AMD system delivered frame rates between 61.8 FPS and 63.8 FPS. When FSR was enabled, the frame rates bounce between 87.1 FPS and 90 FPS. Therefore, we’re looking at an increase in performance up to 46%.
