Starfield is receiving an FSR 3 Beta Update on Steam this week
AMD’s FSR 3 Frame Generation tech is coming to Starfield this week on Steam
Bethesda Game Studios has confirmed that AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution 3 (FSR 3) technology will be coming to the Steam version of Starfield this week. This beta update will upgrade the game’s existing FSR 2 implementation, improving the game’s upscaling technology while also adding AMD’s Frame Generation tech to the game.
FSR 3 will arrive in the mainstream version of Starfield on both Steam and the Microsoft Store/Xbox App later this month. Steam users will get early access to this update in beta form.
What is FSR 3?
FSR 3 is AMD’s newest version of FidelityFX Super Resolution. Gamers receive the same features as AMD’s FSR 2 upscaling solution, but with a new feature called Frame Generation. Frame Generation gives gamers the option to use FSR create intermediate frames between traditionally rendered ones. In ideal cases, this feature can effectively double the framerates of games.
FSR 3 Frame Generation is AMD’s answer to Nvidia’s DLSS 3 Frame Generation technology. That said, AMD’s FSR 3 technology is supported by all modern graphics cards, not just Nvidia’s RTX 40 series GPUs. This makes AMD’s FSR 3 tech more usable by the PC gaming masses. AMD, Intel, and Nvidia GPU users can benefit from FSR 3, unlike DLSS 3.

With the addition of FSR 3 support, more Starfield players will be able to enjoy the game at ultra-high framerates on PC. This is great news for PC gamers, as Starfield can be a fairly demanding title.
