At Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2023, AMD’s team of software engineers shared the first details about the next upscaling technology.
AMD GDC’s briefing on FSR3 hasn’t provided all the answers. This technology is still under active development and there is not even a release date for when it will be officially available. Nevertheless, the successor to FSR2 and the highly anticipated competitor to DLSS3 is perhaps the most important technology AMD has released this year.
Despite being announced almost 4 months ago, it’s clear that AMD still has a long way to go before it can ship technologies that rely on frame interpolation, such as NVIDIA DLSS3. However, AMD may have an ace up its sleeve and it does support more than one GPU architecture. This was pointed out by Azor Frank in November last year, however the GDC update provided no further comment on this.
Conversely, gamers and game developers can tell that AMD’s software engineering team is targeting 2x performance compared to FSR 2.0. Such an increase is made possible thanks to the higher pixel count generated through frame interpolation.
AMD expects FSR 3.0 gameplay to be a smoother experience than FSR 2.0. AMD is working hard to reduce latency, which is key to achieving the best gaming experience. Next, AMD wanted to make the FSR2 to FSR3 upgrade path as easy as possible. This will definitely have a big impact on how quickly the third generation FSR is adopted.
More importantly, AMD confirmed that FSR 3 will be open source via the MIT license. This means that AMD’s third upscaling technology will be free for anyone to pick up and easily edit. Once FSR3 is ready, the company will likely release samples and full documentation. Once this happens, NVIDIA DLSS3 games can quickly start seeing FSR3 mods, just like they did with DLSS2/FSR2.
