Computex 2021 has been packed with exciting announcements to enhance our gaming experiences, including FidelityFX Super Resolution’s AMD preview on June 22nd. Nvidia also released some announcements about the resolution upgrade, as it is now partnering with Valve to bring DLSS to Linux gamers.
With the magic of Steam Proton (Steam Play) software, which allows Linux-based gamers to play Microsoft Windows games seamlessly, Linux gamers will soon be able to access the love of Deep Learning Super Sampling.
It would be a mistake to marginalize Linux-based gamers from this new luxury technology, that's what they live for. Just as it would be a crime to keep an artificially intelligent image quality enhancer as a unique feature of Windows.
Support will be rolled out soon, though no official list of games is available yet.
Games that support Steam Play and DLSS are expected to gain the same momentum as Windows users once the partnership comes to fruition. And it won't take long according to Nvidia. DLSS Steam Play support for Vulkan titles will arrive later this month, which shouldn't be too much trouble to work with, and DirectX support will also arrive in the crowd of Linux games this fall.
