Shadow Warrior 2 adds Multi-Res Shading to boost frame rate


David Coombes, posted Oct 13 2016

Shadow Warrior 2 from Flying Wild Hog is an over the top first person shooter. It is also the first non VR game to use NVIDIA Multi-Res Shading (MRS) technology to increase performance. MRS was initially conceived to accelerate VR applications by rendering the perimeter of the frame at a lower resolution when compared to the center. As it turns out, this technology also works great in regular games especially at high resolutions where pixel shading can become a bottleneck.
