While attending a Q&A session last week, Asobo, the developer of Microsoft Flight Simulator, stated that both Nvidia''s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) Technology and AMD''s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) will be included in the game''s Update 10 soon dropping.

Asobo said it is working on adding support for AMD''s new high-end processor, FSR 2.0. There is no word on when it will arrive, though. While Asobo Studio''s executive producer Martial Bossard said it''ll be released "soon," incorporating it in Update 10 may be somewhat optimistic.

Bossard said the studio is still experiencing some difficulties with the use of DLSS support, including artifacts being present in the game, and issues with some animated textures and the water surfaces.

FSR 2.0 does not depend on machine learning, but it works on a wide spectrum of graphics cards, although AMD believes that it will be more complicated than a spatial upscaling solution like FSR 1.0, which means you''ll need a beefier GPU to get the most out of it, especially when scaling to 4K. The following is a list of AMD recommendations.

Microsoft has recently added Flight Simulator to Xbox Cloud Gaming so subscribers can enjoy it on a variety of lower-spec devices. According to Jorg Neumann, the game''s head of Microsoft Flight Simulator said it was the number one feature, bringing "tens of new people into the game."

Check out our comparison of DLSS 2.0 and FSR 1.0 from last year. Nvidia had the edge in that battle, but will FSR 2.0 drive AMD forward?
