ARK Survival Ascended feature

Here’s how to enable AMD FSR 3.0 in ARK: Survival Ascended

ARK: Survival Ascended is a “remake” of ARK: Survival Evolved in Unreal Engine 5. This game takes full advantage of both Nanite and Lumen, and it’s currently one of the most GPU-heavy UE5 out there. Thankfully, though, there is a way to enable AMD FSR 3.0 Frame Generation and Super Resolution so that you can significantly improve performance.

ARK: Survival Ascended hit Steam Early Access in October 2023. And, as I said back then, it required a really powerful GPU for gaming at native resolutions. In fact, at Native 4K, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 can push constant 60fps only at Low Settings.

Since the game is still in Early Access, it may receive major optimization tweaks and improvements. Until that happens, though, PC gamers can use this guide to enable AMD FSR 3.0.

At launch, ARK: Survival Ascended only supported NVIDIA DLSS 3. And while this was great news for all RTX40 series owners, it left behind pretty much everyone else. Well, today, Intel, NVIDIA and AMD owners can use this guide to enable both AMD FSR 3.0 Frame Generation and Super Resolution. This will dramatically increase the game’s performance. So, make sure to use it.

All you have to do is paste the following command below into the game’s Engine.ini file.


And that’s it. If you’ve done this correctly, AMD FSR 3.0 Frame Generation should now be active. If, for some reason, FSR 3.0 Super Resolution is not activated, you may need to open the game’s command console and manually apply the following command “r.FidelityFX.FSR3.QualityMode=3”.

Speaking of Frame Generation Mods, you might also want to check these out. For instance, you can download these free DLSS 3 Mods for Assassin’s Creed MirageDying Light 2Elden Ring and Lies of P. Then we have the FSR 3.0 mods for Palworld, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, The Last of Us Part I and Dead Space Remake. Sadly, these mods are still behind a Patreon wall. Earlier this year, we also shared DLSS 3 Frame Generation Mods for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Dragon’s Dogma 2. And then have the DLSS 3 Mods for Baldur’s Gate 3Grand Theft Auto 5, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
