Upsize Performance and Maximize Fidelity in God of War and Farming Simulator 22
May 12, 2022, was a big day for AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution (FSR) (3) — DEATHLOOP was the first game to be updated with FSR 2.0, and we were thrilled to see the incredible response* to the next generation of our open-source upscaling technology. Now we are extremely excited to tell you that two more games have been updated to add support for FSR 2.0, Farming Simulator 22 by GIANTS Software and God of War by Santa Monica Studio and PlayStation Studios.
FSR 2.0 is the next-level AMD temporal upscaling technology designed to deliver similar or better than native image quality (4) and boost framerates in supported games across a wide range of products and platforms. Along with the two new FSR 2.0 game updates above, five more games have now joined the list of upcoming FSR 2.0 titles – Abyss World, Hitman 3, Rescue Party: Live!, Super People, and The Callisto Protocol. In addition, more games have been updated to support FSR 1.0. Read on for more details about the latest and upcoming FSR games.
God of War FSR 2.0 Performance
The latest update to God of War is now available* and updates the already available support for FSR 1.0 in the game to FSR 2.0. The next-level “2.0” temporal upscaling technology provides better image quality across all FSR quality modes and resolutions while still substantially boosting performance.
4K God of War with FSR 2.0 on the AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT Graphics Card
On the AMD Radeon™ RX 6950 XT graphics card, AMD’s ultimate graphics card for gaming, gamers can experience up to 1.5x higher framerates at 4K at “Ultra” graphics quality when compared to native resolution (FSR “Off”) when using AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 in “Performance” mode (1). This boost allows you to help Kratos fulfill his quest in God of War at up to over 90 FPS in 4K at the highest detail settings.

Looking at the new AMD graphics powerhouse for 1440p gaming, the AMD Radeon™ RX 6750 XT GPU, FSR 2.0 lets you play God of War at 4K with no compromises at “Ultra” graphics quality.

On the Radeon RX 6750 XT GPU, FSR 2.0 also boosts performance by up to 1.5x in 4K “Ultra” when compared to native resolution (FSR “Off”), to up to more than 60 FPS in FSR 2.0 “Performance” mode (5).
Farming Simulator 22 FSR 2.0 Performance
Farming Simulator 22 lets you create your farm and let the good times grow and the latest update to the game* adds FSR 2.0 to the already included FSR 1.0. With the addition of AMD’s latest upscaling technology, you can significantly boost your framerates in the game while still being able to harvest crops, tend to animals, manage productions, and take on seasonal challenges in 4K at maximum fidelity at the highest graphics settings.
One important note, though, is that by default, Farming Simulator 22 is locked to 60 FPS. On higher-end or more recent graphics cards, to see the performance benefits FSR 2.0 helps deliver, you will need to uncap the framerate using the directions here*.

When using the AMD Radeon™ RX 6750 XT graphics card, FSR 2.0 in “Performance” mode can improve framerates by up to 1.4x over 4K native (FSR “Off”) with the “Very High” graphics preset (2).

For native resolution gaming, the new AMD Radeon™ RX 6650 XT graphics card is designed to deliver maximum gaming at 1080p. However, thanks to the help of AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0, you can farm at triple-digit framerates in 4K on the RX 6650 XT GPU in Farming Simulator 22.

FSR 2.0 helps boost your performance by up to 1.4x above 4K native (FSR “Off”) with “Performance” mode enabled — that is up to 115 FPS even with the game’s graphics set to “Very High” (6).
More Upcoming FSR 2.0 Games and Developers
Along with the God of War and Farming Simulator 22 being updated with FSR 2.0 technology, the list of upcoming FSR 2.0 games has now grown to 16 games with the addition of Abyss World, Hitman 3, Rescue Party: Live!, Super People, and The Callisto Protocol, bringing the number of FSR 2.0 games to 19 in total.

Additional New FSR 1.0 Games
Even though FSR 2.0 is now available in select games, and we expect more developers to integrate our latest upscaling technology into their games, because of the nature of game development timelines you can still expect to see some new games comes out with or get updated with FSR 1.0.
With that in mind, AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 1.0 is now available in Arma Reforger, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dolmen, Hitman 3, iRacing, Project Xandata, Raji: An Ancient Epic Enhanced Edition, Sniper Elite 5, The Elder Scrolls Online, and V Rising – and the first generation of AMD upscaling technology is still capable of boosting framerates (7) at near-native resolution quality using a cutting-edge spatial upscaling algorithm and will help deliver high-quality, high-resolution experiences in all these games.
