Ghost of Tsushima now supports a combination of NVIDIA’s DLSS and AMD’s FSR technologies, allowing for enhanced scaling and frame generation capabilities. This innovative blend leverages DLSS for upscaling and FSR for frame generation, optimizing the gaming experience.

PC Release with Cutting-Edge Tech

As of May 16, PC gamers can explore Ghost of Tsushima through the DIRECTOR’S CUT, published by PlayStation PC LLC on Steam. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions and Nixxes Software, this version integrates multiple upscaling technologies: DLSS 3 (Deep Learning Super Sampling), FSR 3 (FidelityFX Super Resolution), and XeSS (Xe Super Sampling). Uniquely, it allows the pairing of DLSS upscaling with FSR’s Frame Generation, a feature previously seen as unconventional.

The Power of Hybrid Upscaling

Ghost of Tsushima’s hybrid upscaling isn’t just a random experiment. The latest 3.1 update to FSR liberates Frame Generation from being FSR-exclusive, enabling its use alongside other upscaling technologies like DLSS. This is particularly beneficial for gamers with older NVIDIA GPUs, such as the GeForce RTX 30 Series, which don’t natively support Frame Generation available in the RTX 40 Series.

Proven Performance Gains

BlooHook, a prominent X (formerly Twitter) user, shared a screenshot showcasing this combination: the “upscale method” set to “DLSS” and “Frame Generation” to “AMD FSR 3 Frame Generation.” This pairing was previously achievable only through mods, but it can now be officially utilized. According to BlooHook, this setup can achieve 170 frames per second in 4K Ultra settings with a GeForce RTX 3090, highlighting the significant performance boost. Although not directly verified, a comparable RTX 3090 Ti can produce 50 FPS in native 4K and 70-80 FPS in 4K with DLSS quality mode, making BlooHook’s claim plausible.

Broader Implications for AMD and NVIDIA Users

This newfound compatibility between DLSS and FSR’s Frame Generation marks a significant step for AMD, expanding its technology’s reach. It’s particularly advantageous for users with older NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards, providing them with enhanced frame rates and overall performance. As this technology continues to evolve, it opens new possibilities for optimizing gaming experiences across different hardware configurations.
