AMD's technology employ an "advanced edge reconstruction algorithm" to upscale the image meaning that the graphics processor can output a smaller resolution initially, then upscale it. This results in higher FPS and a smoother experience that's ideal for fast-paced games.
It's been thought for a while that future Nintendo Switch hardware could make use of Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling but FidelityFX Super Resolution is a valid alternative to that with current hardware. It's also open-source, free to use and will work with the Nvidia Tegra X1 GPU currently in the Switch.
So it seems that Nintendo is testing out the possibilities with Nintendo Switch Sports and how much performance difference that makes. Perhaps we'll also see the technology employed in future games too.
