Bethesda’s upcoming open-world RPG Starfield will be an AMD partner title featuring FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 (FSR 2) and more. In a new video, Todd Howard explains how the partnership with AMD has benefitted the game’s development. Starfield is built atop the brand-new Creation Engine 2, and Radeon engineers have been working with Bethesda to optimize it for FSR 2 on both PC and Xbox Series consoles.
Starfield will be CPU intensive, as with most RPGs, due to the various damage, status, and reduction counters. Having multi-threaded code that properly utilizes all the CPU threads goes a lot way in delivering smooth, lag-free gameplay. That is exactly what Bethesda is expecting from this partnership. Hopefully, this won’t have much of an adverse impact on GeForce RTX and Intel Arc GPUs.
