Ugh, I really hope that the sharpening can be 100% user controlled. Not a fan of the effects of sharpening and that could ruin the whole feature for me.

is there a mistake? Your native sections list command setup:
Code:
r.TemporalAA.Upsampling 0
r.ScreenPercentage 100
This is not enough to disable AA completely in UE (r.TemporalAA.Upsampling disables the upsampling in TAA pass), you need either:
Code:
r.DefaultFeature.AntiAliasing=0
or
Code:
PostProcessAAQuality=0
Can you quadruple check that state of our screenshot for native does indeed represent proper native?

P.S. Kinda ironic how you need to go thruogh lots of hurdles in modern engines to render in native res. I really dont like where it is all going

Thanks. I should have specified that I did only want to disable the upsampling part, not TAA completely (as it get's really grainy). TAA itself is always running in all cases (as it would be for actual games) i just compared upscaling to no upscaling, so to say.

Sure, but the issue is that your actual FPS data for native isnt really correct, TAA, especially newly added Gen5 one, can eat up to ~20 FPS (!) even without upsampling path. I think this approach just skews outlook at performance numbers in general since we dont have proper baseline.

So far reviews seems favorable for FSR with most reviewers indicating that ultra quality seems to being quite near to native resolution in terms of image quality at higher resolutions. It isn't as effective in preserving details at 1080p and below though as there simply isn't enough details at rendered image to scale. It's no DLSS 2.0 but its significantly better than playing at a lower resolution from the looks of it. Reviewers didn't notice any difference in image quality between AMD and NVidia cards running FSR and performance scaling seems to be pretty similar between the brands.

Complaints includes shimering and blurriness specially at lower FSR quality settings, the lack of AAA games at launch and Epic missing from the list of game studio partners.

It actually works pretty well and is relatively simple to integrate into the game engine, using an open-source shader.

And it works everywhere, including older nVidia cards.

Wow, it looks like they actually delivered something good!

It appears it will trade blows with DLSS 2.0 in higher quality modes. Lower quality modes are a easy win for DLSS 2.0.

Also really big for anyone still hanging onto a Pascal card to get through the GPU shortage / mining boom since it gives those cards a solid bump for anyone wanting to stick it out with their current card until the situation improves.

According to the same guy who claimed DLSS 1.0 is comparable to native.

I couldn't care less for DF reviews for this sort of stuff, especially not from Alex.
I can't agree more.
With the UE5 demo as well, what was hilarious to me was that Alex had a tough time acknowledging 6800XT is faster than NV's best in UE5 demos. They even went on to ridicule it by putting some meme.
The other guy was Richard with his flailing arms distracting me more than an expressive Italian waving his hands about trying to get his point across.
The rest of the guys are OK.

I'm too lazy to look if anyone tested, but wondering if these work on AMD's Vega based APUs? My wife is running a Ryzen 2200G chip and this might be exactly what APUs need for that little extra performance boost.

As for a fully fledged desktop, I'm glad to see FSR isn't just a complete turd like many of us feared it would be, but I stick by the same statement I made regarding DLSS: this is great to extend the life of an aging video card, but i desperately hope it does not become the crutch used to justify poor gen to gen native res performance increases as we go forward.

Neither of these features should be necessary on a new card gaming at "common" (up to 4K) monitor resolutions at the top end.

Gamer's Nexus tested a 5700G with good results.

A friend also tested on a 4700U, no problems here either.

Btw if anyone wants to give FSR a try themselves, The Riftbreaker has a free demo/prologue that supports it and is only a 5GB download.

If anyone has a GPU/CPU w/ iGPU not supported by FSR officially it would be pretty cool to see how those work as well.
Just a note for anyone trying Riftbreaker, the TXAA implementation has to be one of the worst AA implementations I've seen in a very long time. Any movement causes huge quality drops even when rendering natively, without FSR toggled on.

I recommend disabling it in the initial-config file
