AMD users are finally getting an FPS increase in Tarkov, a couple of months after NVIDIA users got DLSS.

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) is an upscaling technology that boosts fps in games, but unlike the Nvidia DLSS, FSR works for both Radeon and GeForce graphics cars, both on older models as well on the new ones.

FSR in Tarkov was announced after the last patch last year together with the NVIDIA's DLSS, but as DLSS was added shortly after, AMD users were left hanging as the FSR did not premiere yet. 

In the latest TarkovTV, Nikita confirmed the FSR will be added soon, and talked more details about it. During the podcast, Nikita showed a couple of side-by-side images with FSR on and off. You can check them out in the gallery below.

As we can see, the increase in FPS ranges from 23% to 43% depending on the environment, as more vacant locations will get a bigger increase compared to those fully stacked with environmental objects like buildings and vehicles.

What differs between NVIDIA's DLSS and AMD's FSR is that the FSR will be usable across all types of GPUs, both mid-range and high-range, unlike DLSS which was only an improvement for top-tier GPUs and higher resolutions.

FSR will have several profiles:

  • ultra quality
  • quality
  • balanced
  • performance

The names are self-explanatory, with an only mystery on how well implemented balanced and ultra quality mode will be. 

To activate the FSR, just enter the in-game settings, and under the graphics tab, just below the NVIDIA DLSS option, you will have AMD FSR 1.0 option to turn on and select your preferred option.

The FSR will get added with the next patch that Battlestate Games are polishing at the moment, which should be released in late June or early July.
