AMD are planning to launch their DLSS competitor, FidelityFX Super Resolution, simultaneously on all platforms according to a well-known tech YouTuber Linus Sebastian.

Nvidia's DLSS technology has been praised by the PC gaming community ever since the company released DLSS 2.0, a successor to the mediocre first version of the tech. Those players who have a DLSS capable GPU can use the tech to increase their frame-rates significantly with a small visual downgrade. 

The feature has been especially useful in games with heavy ray-tracing effects such as Control or Minecraft RTX. 

And while Nvidia GPU owners are happy to have such a cool feature, those who own AMD GPUs are still waiting for the implementation of the announced FidelityFX Super Resolution, which is Team Red's DLSS equivalent.

It looks like the wait could be over soon, as AMD are getting ready to implement the feature on all supported platforms including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC. This is according to a well-known tech YouTuber Linus Sebastian aka Linus Tech Tips.

"Apparently rather than rushing it [FidelityFX Super Resolution] out the door on only one new top-end card, they want it to be cross-platform in every sense of the word. So they actually want it running on all of their GPUs, including the ones inside consoles, before they pull the trigger," Linus said in his latest video.

This certainly sounds like a great plan since console players would be happy to have such a feature available. Hopefully, though, the release date is coming soon as we have been waiting a bit longer than expected for AMD's DLSS competitor.
