The frame inspector tool provides an easy way to compare the image quality of FSR with native-resolution rendering with TAA. It generates a series of frames that you can compare side-by-side. It features interactive controls for panning around each image or zooming in up to 32×, letting you see the difference between the two techniques. 

Images generated by the frame inspector are stored temporarily and deleted when 3DMark is closed. You can change the location of the temporary folder, or copy the images to another folder if you want to keep them for later use.  

In the tool, you can choose the number of frames you want to render, up to a maximum of 100 consecutive frames. You can also choose when in the benchmark you want to start rendering. You cannot start earlier than frame 75, as TAA and FSR both need historical frame data to become effective. The timeline has 900 frames in total.
