A recent Cyberpunk 2077 mod has managed to enable AMD FSR 2.0 support in CD Projekt Red's latest title, offering improved image quality across the board and better performance on older hardware.
Cyberpunk 2077 only supports AMD FSR 1.0 by default, but modder PotatoOfDoom1337 has found a workaround to enable the technology's latest version.
According to them, both FSR 2.0 and Nvidia DLSS work in a similar fashion; replacing a .dll file allows for the translation of DLSS commands into their FSR 2.0 counterparts.
This means that anyone with a GPU that can run Cyberpunk 2077's AMD FSR 2.0 mod should, in essence, be able to reap its rewards.
Testing done by TechPowerUp shows that AMD FSR 2.0 offers improved image quality than the technology's older version for minimal frame rate loss.
A ghosting effect is, however, present and certain ray-traced reflections can be rendered at a lower resolution.
Other users claim that installing the mod resulted in significant performance boosts on older video cards, which is certainly a boon. Even after multiple patches, the game's optimization remains lackluster.
If you own a DLSS 2.0 - capable card, there's no reason to use this workaround, as Nvidia's proprietary technology will yield better results.
Anyone without an RTX card might consider giving it a shot. While mileage may vary, there's a chance that your Cyberpunk 2077 experience will be better.
The mod remains in development and, interestingly enough, its creator points out that it could potentially be used in other games, although getting it to work may require a bit of manual tweaking.
