AMD’s Fluid Motion Frames has finally arrived. The long-awaited alternative to Nvidia’s Frame Generation technology was released as part of the Forspoken update patch 1.22, making it the first game to officially support FSR 3, and in quick succession, Immortals of Aveum received the same treatment.
According to the Forspoken patch notes, the update will not come to PlayStation 5, and on PC, the Microsoft Store version still awaits approval. Meanwhile, Immortals of Aveum will provide support for FSR 3 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X sometime next week, plus both titles also offer a native antialiasing solution, similar to Nvidia’s DLAA. Swell.
We’ve known for quite some time that these two games would be the forerunners of the tech back when AMD launched its Radeon RX 7700 XT and RX 7800 XT GPUs at the tail end of August, though no time frame was given on when FSR3 would arrive. Well, the time is now. Additionally, the road map also includes plans to incorporate the tech in Cyberpunk 2077, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Frostpunk 2, Squad, and Black Myth Wukong.
It is worth noting that AMD’s Frame Generation solution, Fluid Motion Frames, has the added benefit of being compatible on Nvidia and Intel graphics cards, seeing as the tech is GPU agnostic. Theoretically, users stuck on older generation graphics cards could have the opportunity to utilise FSR 3 with Fluid Motion Frames, breathing new life into their systems.
However, it is not all that clear cut, AMD does recommend using the tech on at least AMD Radeon RX 5000 Series or Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 Series cards, and finally, Intel Arc 7 Series or above. Important to note that AMD’s not saying that it shouldn’t work on your tried-and-trusted GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480 graphics cards, just that it might not provide the best results on those two ailing grandparents. Seriously guys, it’s time for an upgrade!
Also, Forspoken may be the first title to launch with FSR 2, and kudos to the developers for the effort, but it will be Immortals of Aveum where pixel peepers will directly compare AMD’s Fluid Motion Frames to Nvidia’s Frame Generation technology, seeing as the game now supports both FSR 3 and DLSS 3.
Of course, you could also check it out for yourself if you own any of the two titles, or alternatively, download the Forspoken demo for free. Happy gaming all!
