DLSS, a know-how I don’t wish to perceive as a result of then it will no longer feel like magic, has till now been obtainable only to people taking part in Windows video games. Thanks to some work from Valve and Nvidia, although, that’s about to vary.
An official record of video games that can assist the function hasn’t been launched, however you may get a tough look issues by comparing Nvidia’s list of DLSS-supported titles to these compatible with Proton, a device launched by Valve earlier this 12 months that lets Linux customers run Windows video games on their laptop via a “compatibility layer”.
One bizarre kink within the announcement, although, is that the DLSS compatibility has been designed with Proton in thoughts, and isn’t meant for video games with official Linux ports. So despite the fact that some video games might have a devoted Linux model, there’s the chance they get higher efficiency by utilizing DLSS via that “compatibility later” than by working natively.
In addition to failing to supply an official record of video games, there additionally isn’t a launch date to go together with the announcement both, so Linux avid gamers will simply should hope/assume that it’s someday later this 12 months.
