“We have always believed that our family of AMD FidelityFX effects should be accessible, truly open source, free to modify, highly optimized and cross-platform. The adoption of AMD FidelityFX among game developers, which integrates the technologies in more than 40 titles to PC, confirmed our belief that having this technology open source was the right choice when it launched in 2019.
This was always intended to allow for easier integration by developers who needed to distribute their games on both consoles and PCs. So today we are very excited to announce that AMD FidelityFX is now available for Xbox! “
