AMD is indeed a competitor for Nvidia DLSS. FidelityFX Super Resolution big test has appeared

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) upscaling technology became available two days ago with the release of the fresh Radeon Adrenalin 2020 21.6.1 graphics driver. And today we can take a look at the first big review of this technology and compare it with Nvidia DLSS.

The authors prepared a large video with a detailed analysis of the FSR quality in different modes, compared, as far as possible, AMD technology with Nvidia DLSS and made a number of conclusions.

Let’s start with performance. As you can see, depending on the video card, mode and resolution, FSR activation increases performance by an amount from 20-25% to 100% or even more. The biggest gains are seen in 4K. For example, the far from the most productive GeForce GTX 1660 Super can handle Godfall even in 4K, and the FSR Quality mode is enough for this.

The most important technology issue is image quality. Both DLSS and FSR are not free to improve performance. Both technologies lower the rendering resolution, and then, in one way or another, complete the missing pixels. Nvidia relies on machine learning and tensor cores in GeForce RTX graphics cards for DLSS 2.0, and AMD FSR is a simpler spatial upscaling method that the company calls an advanced edge reconstruction algorithm. Therefore, after the announcement, experts did not expect much from AMD’s new development. However, tests showed that the company did very well.

In the Ultra Quality and Quality modes, the clarity of the image and the detail of textures are not reduced very much, and it is often easy to notice it only with a static picture and a strong zoom. During the game without looking at the monitor, most of the difference may not notice at all. At the same time, productivity grows on average by 40% and 65%, respectively.

At the same time, tests showed that it is better to use FSR in 4K in the above modes, or in 1440p and only in Ultra Quality mode. In other modes, as well as in all modes in Full HD, there is a noticeable decrease in image quality and the appearance of artifacts in the form of flickering.

If we compare FSR with DLSS 2, although this can only be done in different games so far, it turns out that AMD’s less technologically advanced technology has its advantages. The performance gains for technologies are about the same, but at the same time FSR does not suffer from the appearance of halos of fast-moving objects and large artifacts, as was the case in Death Stranding (this was fixed in DLSS 2.2). In addition, in the case of DLSS, sometimes the AI ​​draws small distant objects in a somewhat strange way. Also on the side of FSR is cross-platform and easier integration into games.

DLSS, in turn, copes better with upscaling in Full HD, and in some cases even the most productive mode does not greatly affect the picture quality. In addition, the technology has simply been on the market for much longer and already boasts support for almost 60 games, including very large projects.

The best-selling portable console Steam Deck will become more affordable. Valve more than doubles production

The best selling portable console Steam Deck will become more affordable

The Steam Deck console will be available in large volumes soon.

Valve has published a message that it is increasing the production of the console, more than doubling it!

It is unclear whether this will be enough to meet demand, since the company initially accepted a lot of orders for the console, and now it is very false to buy it. But such a significant increase in production volumes should have a positive impact on the availability and prices from resellers.

The company also announced that it has just completed deliveries of set-top boxes that were booked in the second quarter, and will begin accepting pre-orders for the third on June 30th. However, delivery on the site is still indicated no earlier than October.

7000 for 64 cores up to 45GHz AMD Threadripper 5000WX

At first there were rumors about this, then AMD officially confirmed everything: the powerful AMD Threadripper 5000WX processors will go on sale and become available to everyone. As it turned out, the CPU is already available in China.

The official start of sales is in July, at the same time the recommended retail prices will be announced. In the meantime, sellers are asking for Threadripper 5000WX much more than what they asked for their predecessors. Thus, the 64-core Threadripper 5995WX is offered for $7,030, while the official cost of the Threadripper 3995WX is $5,850. The 32-core Threadripper 5975WX is priced at $3,590, while its predecessor, the Threadripper 3975WX, is officially listed at $2,750. The Threadripper 5965WX is also available in China for the equivalent of $2,570.

The 16-core 5955WX and the 12-core 5945WX were left behind. Maybe they won’t go to retail at all.

At the moment, the reasons for the rise in price are not reported. However, it is possible that this was influenced by the expected increase in electricity prices. According to Bloomberg, about 22,000 industrial enterprises will buy electricity at a 15% higher price. This will lead to an increase in the cost of the final product.

It is TSMC that manufactures processors for Apple, Qualcomm AMD, Nvidia, and so on. thus, price increases will affect all segments of electronics – smartphones, game consoles, PCs, servers, and so on.
