Shadow Warrior 2 adds Multi-Res Shading to boost frame rate
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.
Shadow Warrior 2 performance can be improved by up to 30% with MRS, meaning it can run max settings at 60 fps at 4K on a GeForce GTX 1080, with max settings enabled, or at over 60 FPS at 2560x1440 on a GTX 1060, also with max settings enabled.
MRS is supported on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 and 10 series GPUs.
Shadow Warrior 2 also supports SLI, DSR, GeForce Experience Share, G-SYNC, Surround and HDR. To learn more head to the article on GeForce.com.
