Denoising Raytraced Soft Shadows on Xbox Series X|S and Windows with FidelityFX

With raytraced visuals bumping rendering quality even higher than ever before, a significant amount of fine tuning is required to maintain real-time performance. A typical way to achieve this is to trace fewer rays, and to make sense of the noisier output that method delivers.

This presentation will explain how the AMD FidelityFX Denoiser allows for high-quality raytracing results without increasing rays per pixel, and deep dives into specific RDNA™ 2-based optimizations that benefit both Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Why this extra page to get to the video?

This video is not hosted on AMD’s YouTube channel, so we cannot put a link to the slides in the description there as we would normally do. We think you won’t want to miss the slides, so before you head over to YouTube (opens in new window) with the image thumbnail link above, make sure to grab the slides too!
