The new update for F1 22 comes with a performance boost thanks to the introduction of AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.2. According to a recent report by PC Gamer, the game will perform 11% faster with FSR 2.2 balanced mode compared to FSR 1.0 balanced mode with TAA and FidelityFX Sharpening.
According to PC Gamer Reporter, F1 22’s FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.2 was tested in a platform with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and Radeon RX 7900 XT. The writer also tested the average and minimum FPS that the game will output in 4K Ultra HD graphics. With balanced FSR 2.2 the game will output at 110fps with 80fps minimum. The performance preset increases performance marginally to 120fps on average and 83fps minimum.
FSR 1.0 technology has also been tested in this machine using TAA + FSR 1.0 Upscale Balanced and Performance settings. This preset turned out to be slightly faster in minimum frame times but paler in visual quality than the FSR 2.2 configurations, resulting in sharper images in the latter.
Besides achieving some great results in terms of performance thanks to FSR 2.2, patch 1.17 for F1 22 also brings many other fixes and improvements. Here is a list of changes made with this patch:
- Fixed an issue that could result in fewer than 20 drivers in a season in Career modes
- Fixed an issue in MyTeam where, in Quick Practice, there would be no power unit wear simulation
- Updated George Russell front wheel arch color and driver number
- Fixed an issue where, in some cases, the cross friends list would be empty even though there were friends
- Fixed a crash when selecting “End Season” at the start of the real season
F1 22 is currently available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC.
