Microsoft hosted the developer-focused Game Stack Live 2021 event yesterday, and as part of the show, AMD confirmed that its AMD FidelityFX toolkit is now available for developers to use on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

FidelityFX is described as helping to deliver "ultimate visual quality with minimal performance overhead," and it's currently being used in 40+ games, including the likes of Dirt 5, Microsoft Flight Simulator and Immortals Fenyx Rising.

Here's what AMD had to say about the announcement yesterday:

"This news makes it even easier than before to write cross-platform games, with developers able to access select AMD FidelityFX effects with specific optimizations for Windows® and Xbox. Game developers can now utilize further platform-specific optimizations with AMD FidelityFX, straight from the Xbox Series X|S Game Development Kit.

This development is very exciting to all at AMD who have worked to deliver these effects into the hands of even more developers – and we will continue to strive for our highly optimized effects to be at the forefront of cross-platform game development."
