AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (AMD FSR) Is a simple algorithmic zooming technique that can render lower-quality images into higher-resolution frames, allowing the graphics card to render lower resolutions and output higher frame rates. This technology has recently appeared on AMD Radeon graphics cards, but only a few games support it. Don’t be afraid, because the mod makers have found a way to implement FSR to any existing Windows game.
Open source software published on GitHub called magpie, Has been in existence since March this year. However, yesterday’s update brought to the software an interesting implementation of AMD FSR technology, which was previously used for magnification and zooming.
Magpie 0.5.2 has the initial implementation of AMD FSR. First, all you have to do is install the software and run the FSR implementation on your favorite game, if it does not support FSR itself.
The GitHub page states that you should not expect too many performance improvements for immediate execution. Magpie is not designed to improve performance software, the addition of AMD FSR has not changed this.The software may also malfunction 1440p and 4K Resolution, because it is mainly designed for lower resolutions, such as 720p and 1080p.
A very important point is that when Magpie uses FSR on the enlarged Window, it actually uses FSR as the post-processing of the game screen. This may cause some loss of image quality and make it not very effective. All UI elements and noise will be amplified.
In terms of performance, Magpie may not be able to increase the frame rate, as this largely depends on the selection algorithm used by the FSR-upgraded game. Finally, the software can increase the use of system resources, depending on how it finds itself.
All these things aside, the software developers have tested the FSR function and published the image results, you can find these results below.

Before running this software, we must warn you not to use third-party software from unknown repositories. If you decide to run it, use it at your own risk. This is an interesting concept, but we have not tested Magpie and cannot guarantee its stability or safety.
