Valve has released the Nemestice Update for DOTA 2 that adds official support for AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution tech. According to the team, FidelityFX Super Resolution will work on any GPU compatible with DirectX 11 or Vulkan.
AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution is a technique that allows the game to render at a lower resolution and then upscale the results with improved image quality.
As Valve and AMD wrote:
“The result is high-quality rendering at a lower performance cost than full resolution rendering, which allows for higher framerates even on less powerful graphics cards. Players can enable this setting in the Video options by turning the “Game Screen Render Quality” to less than 100%. Then, they can turn on the “FidelityFX Super Resolution” checkbox.”
This latest update for DOTA 2 also brings a new event.
“In the wake of the Mad Moon’s destruction, willful fragments of Radiant Ore and Direstone crashed upon our world. But a third type of stone—Nemestice—was left drifting behind. Now, a prophesied Nemestice Storm strikes the heart of the battlefield, and the clash of the Ancients has been forgotten. For Nemestice offers power over both Ancients, and in this land, there is no greater prize.”
