There’s a new collaboration between AMD and Xbox to push Starfield’s graphics to the max.
Starfield, Bethesda’s highly anticipated sci-fi role-playing game, will feature the veteran Bethesda Creation Engine. However, this new title will also boast AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.0 technology.
This has been confirmed by the company itself in a statement. It’s a new collaboration that adds to the long list of collaborations between the two companies. And that plans to make a difference in the face of direct competition within the genre.
One more collaboration for the portfolio
This is not AMD’s first collaboration with a product associated with Xbox. The company already provides the processors and graphics cards for the Xbox Series X|S consoles, as well as the previous Xbox One. In addition, AMD has also worked with Bethesda in the past to optimize games such as Doom Eternal and Fallout 76.
FSR 2.0 technology is based on an algorithm that scales the resolution of games from below native resolution to the desired resolution, applying a sharpening filter that improves image quality. In a nutshell, this technology allows you to improve the performance and image quality of games without the need for specific hardware, offering an alternative to Nvidia’s DLSS.
Starfield will pioneer this technology on Xbox consoles
Starfield will be one of the first games to take advantage of this technology on Xbox X Series X|S consoles. A technology that would add to the advantages, such as Smart Delivery or Quick Resume.
In this way, Xbox and PC consoles will achieve higher performance without sacrificing too much visual fidelity. According to AMD, FSR 2.0 is compatible with more than 100 graphics cards and processors, including those of competitors.
Currently, there are more than 40 titles that support FSR 2.0, including Resident Evil Village, Far Cry 6, and Godfall. And, as of September 6 of this year, Starfield will be added to the list. It is worth remembering that the game will be exclusively for PC and Xbox, as well as being available from day one on the Xbox Game Pass service.
