AMD FSR 2.0 mods start to appear as gamers can’t wait for frame rate increases

AMD’s FSR 2.0 (Super Resolution FidelityFX) is still relatively new to the gaming scene and hardly any games yet – but modders have taken matters into their own hands in some cases when it comes to unofficially pushing support to the frame rate increase technology.

We’ve already seen a mod for Cyberpunk 2077 by the fun-named modder PotatoOfDoom, which essentially leverages DLSS support to bring in FSR 2.0, and this workaround is now also available in mods for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Dying Light 2. The latter were worked on by other modders on Nexus Mods, but still based on the original PotatoOfDoom mod.

Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro might launch tonight

The Asus ROG Phone 6 will launch tonight and there is a possibility that we will also see a Pro model at the event. This will be the first time the company has added such a smartphone to the lineup. According to a tweet from insider Mukul Sharma, the device has been spotted on the list of Bluetooth certifications alongside the ROG Phone 6.

The SIG Bluetooth certification list shows the AI2201 model numbers listed under each model. The listing shows that the ROG Phone 6 was listed 4 times, while the ROG Phone 6 Pro was listed twice. This could mean that the company will release 2 variants for the Pro model. Also, it has been confirmed that all devices will be running Bluetooth 5.2 when they are released.

ROG Phone Pro specs are unknown at this time. And surprisingly, there were no phone updates from many of the country’s informants. All we can do now is wait until launch to find out more.

From what we know about the ROG Phone 6, the smartphone is expected to run the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and feature a 165Hz AMOLED display. Rumor has it that it comes with a large 5,850mAh battery with support for 65W fast charging out of the box. The ROG gaming smartphone may also come with a triple camera setup with a 64MP primary lens.

Will the Pro model come to India?

Healthy Elden Ring Invader should be a lesson to us all

A solo Elden Ring player is setting an example of how to pull off the perfect invasion – and damn if they aren’t just the hero we need in Soulslike games.

Elden Ring, like other games in the Soulsbourne series, is tough at best. Add in invasions – where players can infiltrate your game and kill you while you’re distracted fighting AI enemies – and Elden Ring can go from creepy to a quick ‘no!’ very fast. So seeing this Redditor take pity on newcomers to the game warmed my old gray heart.
