If you’re in the gaming space, especially if you like the red team AMD, you may have heard about AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution technology (FSR). For the uninitiated, the tech upscales resolutions of games using deep learning. It’s similar to NVIDIA’s DLSS.
In recent reports, Valve’s developers said that FSR is “already available” in some apps and will also be added to Steam Deck in “future release.” This is an exciting addition to the console and will aid gamers to play games in higher resolution as long as the game supports the same.
And thanks to Valve, bringing FSR to SteamOS means the Linux Desktop community can also benefit from it since SteamOS is open-source. Over 70 games are currently supporting FSR, but the list is increasing.
As the PC Gamer notes, Steam Deck users might be able to upscale the game to 1200 x 800 native resolution and enjoy the game at 60 frames per second rather than 30. Or you can upscale to 1080p and play at 30 fps. It would be pretty interesting to see how it works out.
We haven’t tested FSR yet, but judging by the good things we’ve heard about it on the internet, we can’t wait to test it out if we do manage to get our hands on the Steam Deck, Valve, YKWTD ;)
