AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution technology will likely automatically improve the graphics performance of all games on the Steam Deck.
In the latest game news, we learned that Steam Deck games can finally perform much better thanks to support for AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution feature. FSR technology rivals Nvidia’s DLSS, which has the ability to increase frame rate and resolution. Recently, Volvo’s new platform support for FSR technology was described in detail in the Frequently Asked Questions section of Business Partners. In a separate section called AMD, Steve explains the Steam Deck support for FSR technology at launch and beyond.
The FAQ section states: “FSR is currently available for some games that support this technology. Games with FSR run the same way, but you can expect support for this technology with future OS updates as well. “Once that happens, games that do not normally support FSR will probably be able to use it.” In short, releasing an update package in the future could increase the frame rate and resolution of games, even for games that did not previously support AMD technology.
FSR technology, which became available last year, is similar to DLSS technology in its ability to scale and improve games, but with some differences. One of these differences is the open source FidelityFX Super Resolution, which runs on a variety of graphics cards, including older Nvidia cards and future Intel GPUs. Another difference is that AMD technology does not use machine learning unlike DLSS. FSR technology also offers users four modes: Ultra-Quality, Quality, Balanced and Performance to improve images.
FSR technology should address some of the long-term concerns of users about the performance of games on the Steam Deck. Some time ago, even though it unveiled a list of fully optimized games for Steam Deck, including works such as Portal 2, Psychonauts 2, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – GOTY Edition, Dark Souls 3, Total War: Warhammer 3, Death Stranding and Mad Max were featured. Of course, he plans to optimize other games like Persona 4 for his new platform.
Valve recently announced that the first wave of Steam Deck sales will begin on February 25th. He even introduced the Steam Deck as “a powerful and versatile portable gaming computer” capable of running the latest AAA games. Steam Deck uses the latest version of SteamOS operating system, which is based on Linux and allows users to access the archive of Steam games. Of course, Valve refers to the Steam deck as a full-fledged device that allows users to install a variety of software and operating systems.
The Steam Deck comes in three different models with storage storage: the 64GB model with the $ 399 eMMC hard drive, the 256GB SSD with the $ 529, and the 512GB SSD with the $ 649. Although the company is reluctant to develop exclusive games for its new platform, it seems to be focusing on producing works that are compatible with the device’s features. The laptop was originally scheduled for release in December 2021, but a shortage of components delayed it by two months.
