DLSS 2 & FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 - Incredible Upscaling

Hogwarts Legacy PC Performance Review & Settings Guide

Upscaling for everyone

Hogwarts Legacy features every type of upscaling that you can think of. The game's rendering resolution can be switched without a branded upscaler from AMD, Nvidia or Intel, it can be upscaled using smart upscalers like DLSS, FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0, and Intel's XeSS, and spatial upscalers like FidelityFX Super resolution 1.0 and Nvidia Image Sharpening are also available.

If you use an Nvidia RTX GPU, DLSS is the upscaler for you. If you use an AMD or non-RTX Nvidia GPU, FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 is your best bet, and if you use an Intel graphics card, XeSS will be your upscaler of choice.

DLSS and FSR 2.0

Both DLSS and FSR 2.0 are incredibly capable upscaling solutions, and both can deliver huge performance gains and pleasing levels of image quality. To our eyes, DLSS appears to deliver sharper results than FSR 2.0, but both are great solutions, especially if you are trying to get high framerates out of your hardware. 

Below we can see how DLSS and FSR 2.0 can impact the performance of Hogwarts Legacy at 4K with an RTX 3080 Ti and an RX 6800 XT. Sadly, we could not properly test XeSS in this game, as we do not have an Intel ARC series graphics card to test.

How are you able to measure fps? Are you using an external tool like Fraps?Quote

Great work on this, OC3D team. First game to see a real benefit of using DLSS3.Quote

Very good work. Very throughout and detailed.

It's nice to find a game that really pushes hardware.

I am interested to see if AMDs 3D cache CPUs will significantly benefit this game since they will be able to store far more data on die rather than constantly fetch from memory.Quote

From what I've read a fair few people even with a 4090 are still seeing GPU usage dipping down to 80% which means DLSS3 isn't working like it should.Quote
