AMD launches their Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1 driver for FidelityFX Super Resolution

AMD has just launched their Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1 driver, adding support for their Radeon RX 6800M mobile graphics card, game-specific optimisation for Dungeons and Dragons Dark Alliance and support for FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) in supported games. 

The headline feature of this driver is AMD's support for FSR, a software feature that promises to deliver significant performance boosts to supported games and image reconstruction techniques that aim to deliver higher levels of image quality than traditional upscaling techniques. We plan to test this feature in supported games soon and see how well AMD's new FidelityFX feature works in practice. 

Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1 Highlights

Support For

- AMD Radeon RX 6800M Graphics
- Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance™
- AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) support for select titles.
