AMD Fidelity FX Review - Featuring RAGE 2

Is Radeon's Fidelity FX as good as it claims to be?



Read more about RAGE 2's use of AMD's FidelityFX.

Very subtle yes but I mean DLSS isn't great either and actually makes the IQ worse so I give it a tie.

It's not a huge difference but it is a nice little feature and as it's free I won't say no, The biggest difference I can see is from the Borderlands 3 screenies.

TBH with this working on both Radeon and Geforce and being practically free performance-wise I would say that FidelityFX is a win for AMD.

It has been ages since I have heard of anyone using DLSS. It has practically fallen off the face of the earth.

Yeah, but that's the AMD screenshots for a pre-release game. Wouldn't put to much faith in that.

As you said, "not a huge difference but it is a nice little feature and as it's free". I'm looking forward to seeing more games use this. It may have a larger impact on other games/engines.

I meant a tie because of the fact that one is agnostic and actually makes the image sharper whereas one is platform specific but increases performance at the expense of IQ

But yeah DLSS is a gimmick. So is this too imo. Just have to wait and see if FidelityFX becomes more common.

Yeah I'm always torn between sticking with the jaggies and shimmers of a 1080p image or enabling post-process AA and putting up with the vaseline screen, this seems like a computationally cheap way to "fix" cheap AA.

I know that feeling. Usually, end up using TAA though. Image stability trumps sharpness for me. Sawtooth edges stick out like a sore thumb to me.

As nice as things like MSAA etc are, they never dealt with all kinds of aliasing, that's what makes TAA so appealing. It's cheap and very effective.

I like it. It's subtle but I could see myself using it.
