Digital Foundry specialists analyzed the work of FSR 2.1 in the latest Cyberpunk 2077 patch


Even after almost two years since its release, Cyberpunk 2077 continues to evolve. With each patch, the developers at CD Projekt RED have made significant fixes and improvements to the open world game. The latest update for the action added official support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution version 2.1 on all platforms, which has a positive impact on performance and graphics quality. Visual improvements were even noted by specialists from Digital Foundry, who analyzed the recent patch for Cyberpunk 2077 on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

As noted by experts, Cyberpunk 2077 continues to run at a constant native resolution of 1440p on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Support for FSR 2.1 allows the game to reconstruct the resulting picture so that it looks like a full 4K image. There is no switch or option on consoles to enable FSR like there is on PC. The scaling technology replaced the original image processing method in the game, which Digital Foundry called the best solution.

AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution version 2.1 really improves image quality, whether it’s static scenes, in motion, removing aliasing or even de-occlusion when objects in the foreground move, revealing previously hidden details. For example, Cyberpunk 2077 in ray-traced mode at 30fps shows a very sharp image, which stands out for sub-pixel details and high-quality display in general. The technology looks especially good during the inspection of the night city.
