This unofficial tool claims it can enable AMD FSR in any game
...
The tech is also more accessible to developers too as it is open-source, much like a lot of Radeon's other technologies, and the source code for FSR was made available on GitHub last month. Using that perhaps, a modder claims to have been able to integrate this image upscaling technology into a software called 'Magpie'. The latest release version 0.5.2 of this software mentions in its changelog that AMD's FSR support has now been added to it.

However, the developer has noted a few caveats too:

He has stated that users may not see much improvement by enabling FSR from Magpie.
FSR here in Magpie has been implemented as a post-processing technique and may worsen the noise, and such, when it is enabled. It has also been mentioned that missing pixel details in an image from lowering the screen resolution cannot fully be supplemented by FSR.
The dev hasn't tested this game at 1440p and 4K resolutions and so it might not work as intended.
Finally, it has been noted that running Magpie with FSR may prove resource intensive which actually sounds counter-productive considering FSR is actually meant to be less demanding.

TL;DR - Poor value ~10% faster than an RTX 3060 overall for 15% more money.
Only a PCIe 8x interface also... :-s

Indeed, AMD must have known this would happen, and I can't really blame them if they can shift these things at up to $600 each instead.
It's still a crazy world for GPU prices at the moment, MSRP means nothing when the demand is still high and it's certainly the death of mid-range cards below $300 now.

A Radeon RX 480 8GB had an MSRP of $229 in 2016... that'll almost certainly never happen again. =;
I know PC's have never been price competitive with consoles (apples/oranges etc), but to build a gaming PC now to the equivalent spec of a PS5/XSX would cost a stupid amount of money, you'd be looking at ~$1900 (back of the hand calc) at least for a Ryzen 3700, RX 6700 XT, B550 Mobo, 16GB DDR4, 1TB Gen4 NVMe and Case/PSU... x-#

Sigh, very difficult to get excited by anything new really - looks like I'll be keeping my 5700 XT for another year at least. Not that there is anything available at all, mind you.
No sig due to budget cuts.

AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series to Include 6nm Optical-Shrinks of RDNA2

AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 7000 series could include GPUs from both the RDNA3 and RDNA2 graphics architectures, according to reliable sources on social media. This theory holds that the company could introduce new 5 nm GPUs based on the new RDNA3 architecture for the higher end, namely the Navi 31 and Navi 32; while giving the current-gen RDNA2 architecture a new lease of life in the lower segments. This isn't, however, a simple rebrand.

Here’s How To Get AMD FSR Running In Any Game Using Lossless Scaling Tool
...
While the technology can be implemented within a day or two in any AAA game, there are certain older games that developers no longer support. For those titles, programmers have built specially designed tools that can inject the AMD FSR scaler for almost similar performance & image quality. The most commonly used tool is Magpie which injects the spatial upsampling technique in almost any game title you could think of but users have been reporting issues such as stuttering and input delays when using it.
