Former Ubisoft Developer Claims Techland Deliberately Degraded AMD FSR Image Quality in Dying Light 2


A few days ago a user Reddit TheHybred (former developer Ubisoft) said that Techland deliberately lowered the quality AMD FSR v Dying Light 2. TheHybred shared settings for AMD FSR Ultra Qualityso the network decided to check them out to find out if these accusations are true or not.

This game is sponsored by NVIDIA, so FSR does not have an ultra quality preset, and the sharpness value is minimal to make the technology look bad.

For tests, I used an Intel i9 9900K with 16 GB DDR4 @ 3800 MHz and NVIDIA RTX 3080, Windows 10 64-bit and GeForce 511.65 driver.

Below you can find some comparison screenshots. AMD FSR Quality – first, NVIDIA DLSS – second, AMD FSR Ultra Quality – third.

AMD FSR Ultra Quality really looks sharper and better than NVIDIA DLSS Quality. but AMD FSR Ultra Quality also works noticeably slower than DLSS Ultra Quality. Here are some benchmarks at 1440p/Ultra/Ray Tracing.

Finally, it is recommended to use DLSS Qualityif you are using ray tracing effects in the game. These RT effects are quite demanding and you will need all the extra performance you can get. In current state DLSS Quality offers the best balance of performance and image quality. However, if you are not using RT, you can enable AMD FSR Ultra Quality. The reason it is advised to do so is because AMD FSR Ultra Quality you’ll get a consistent 60fps even at 4K on the RTX3080 (if you don’t use ray tracing effects).

In order to enable AMD FSR Ultra Qualityyou need to follow this guide.

Open the video.scr file located at Documents/dying light 2/out/settings. Then use the following settings. After making these changes, save the file, make it Read Only, and then launch the game.

  • Scale3D (0.77)
  • FSR (1.000000)
  • Upscaler (3)
  • Upscaling (3)

The former Ubisoft developer concluded by adding:

AMD should stop preventing developers from including DLSS in their sponsored games, and NVIDIA shouldn’t deliberately try to make other people’s technology worse than it really is, it will only hurt gamers and no one will buy into these tricks, so what’s the point?
