The new AMD FSR 3 will be the next generation of graphics processing units from Advanced Micro Devices and promises to give you the performance you have never experienced before. The first generation of FSR has been quite popular among the users, but most of the time it didn’t provide the same kind of quality and smoothness of motion that many users were expecting from this revolutionary technology called Fluid Motion Frames.
What is AMD FSR?
AMD has been teasing their new generation graphics processing unit, AMD FSR 3, for a while now.
With the performance benchmarks found in their previous generations making things seem very promising for this next gen GPU, people are starting to wonder what AMD is planning with this new architecture.
One thing that we do know is that AMD is promising Fluid Motion Frames, which if true could offer double the 4K frame rates of its predecessor with a feature called Fluid Motion Frames.
There’s also speculation on just how many cores will be powering this next gen GPU.
If you’ve seen any reviews on Nvidia RTX 40 before it may seem like there’s a lot more information here than we have seen in most other articles surrounding AMD FSR 3.
What are the promises of AMD FSR 3?
AMD FSR 3 is promising a lot, but will it live up to expectations? It’s hard to tell at this point.
One thing that is for certain though, AMD wants to make 4K frame rates accessible with their upcoming graphics processing unit (GPU).
This would be a big step up from their previous generation GPU, which could only offer double the 4K frame rates of its predecessor.
It seems like AMD is trying to make 4K gaming as realistic as possible.
However, there are some things that need to be watched out for before we get too excited.
For starters, AMD has yet to release any benchmarks or even an estimated time in which they might release one.
That makes it difficult to judge how well the new 4K frame rates will work against other GPUs on the market.
It also means that we won’t know what type of computer system you’ll need to run games on such high 4K frame rates.
On top of all this, RTX 2020 cards have already been rumored as being capable of delivering 4k frames rate that surpasses AMD FSR 3 by leaps and bounds.
So while there may be some hype surrounding this next gen card, I think it’s going to have a tough time living up to those lofty promises made by developers! But if you’re willing to risk your money, who am I to stop you? Let’s take a look at the features that AMD is boasting about when it comes to 4K frame rates.
It seems like a big part of AMD FSR 3’s goal is to allow 4K frame rates without using the drawbacks typical to gamers on lower end hardware.
Unlike their predecessors, AMD says that their new hardware will not produce distorted images and should reduce screen tearing.
However, Nvidia has said that they can provide higher 4K resolution than previously promised through fluid motion frames–a name strikingly similar to RTX 2020s fluid motion feature–which just goes to show how committed both companies are towards bettering gamers’ experience through high 4K resolutions!
What is the potential of AMD FSR 3?
With big promises that the third generation of FSR can provide double the frame rates of the fourth generation, and a feature called Fluid Motion Frames,
I’m sure that it is going to be worth every penny. However, before we get ahead of ourselves, there is one major question to answer: how does AMD’s new flagship compare to what we’ve seen from Nvidia so far?
A name that sounds strangely like the techno used on the RTX 40 from Nvidia, but judging by what we know about each respective company’s next-gen graphics processing units, AMD is making bigger claims than Nvidia thus far.
If you’re looking for an immediate comparison between the two graphics cards, AMD released benchmarks for their next-gen GPU during CES 2019 which put it right up against some of Nvidia’s latest releases in a head-to-head showdown.
In terms of 4K frame rates, the Vega 20 card came out on top with a result of 63 frames per second compared to 59 frames per second from Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Ti.
That’s less than a four percent difference with AMD edging out just slightly when it comes down to performance in this benchmark.
How does this compare to other GPUs on the market?
The graphics processing unit, or GPU, is a specialized electronic circuit that handles all sorts of graphics calculations.
Nvidia’s RTX 40 is a high-end graphics card with higher 4K frame rates than its predecessor. However, it’s considerably more expensive at $699 USD.
Even though they are not as powerful as the RTX 40, AMD’s newest cards are still cheaper at $299 USD.
And while their 4K frame rate pales in comparison to the RTX 40 (the new AMD cards can only handle 60FPS), it is double that of their previous generation for much less cost.
That said, it will take some time before these benefits trickle down to the consumer level; 4K content just isn’t there yet. The sad truth is that 4K content is nowhere near widespread, says PCWorld.
It’s practically nonexistent. A quick Google search shows that the most popular 4K videos on YouTube have low views and even fewer likes. In addition, televisions which support 4K resolution are very expensive ($5k-$10k).
It may be an option when you’re ready to buy a TV instead of buying a video game console, says PC World.
Regardless, this would require an HDMI 2.1 cable which costs $30-50 on top of the television price…
This leaves gamers little choice but to purchase a 4K gaming monitor which range from $300-700 and many of those models don’t offer 4K@60Hz.
Some companies like ASUS do offer 4K@60Hz monitors with NVIDIA Gsync technology but those are also quite pricey–$899 to start.
The next best alternative is NVIDIA’s Geforce NOW service, an alternative way of playing games over the internet rather than locally by downloading the game onto your computer through Steam or Origin.
Yet it too has limitations such as delays due to playing over Wi-Fi connections which results in lower frame rates, laggy gameplay, increased loading times, and worst of all a significant loss in visual quality if your bandwidth isn’t fast enough.
