- Dataminers confirm that Starfield might not be getting the much-coveted Nvidia DLSS and Intel XeSS support.
- This has the potential to create a lot of backlash in the gaming community since lower-end systems will have a much tougher time running Starfield.
- In addition, fans are worried about Microsoft and Bethesda games wholly favoring AMD technology due to their partnership.
In this day and age, many consider data miners to be the savior of society. By scouring through files that a commoner will never understand, they are able to get information about what can happen in the future and what didn’t in the past regarding app and game updates.
When it comes to gaming technology provided and developed by graphic card companies like Nvidia, AMD, and Intel (still newcomers), supersampling has been one of the game changers. This is a feature that allows high-end games to run on weaker systems with a bit of a graphical downgrade – a feature that was not available before. Nvidia has DLSS, Intel has XeSS, and AMD has FSR.
However, ever since Starfield became downloadable (but not playable) a few days ago, data miners have been busy at work uncovering its contents from the game files. While many have leaked essential game content like story details, names of weapons, characters’ skills, and more, the biggest surprise comes in the form of the question – “Will my PC be able to run Starfield?”
Now, it seems like it might be if you met the system requirements. However, if you have an Nvidia graphics card or one of the newer Intel graphics cards, you might have a tougher time running it.
Data miners were unable to find any Nvidia DLSS support or Intel XeSS support to allow older graphics card users to juice out higher frame rates by sacrificing graphical fidelity. Many fans are outraged about this, considering that Bethesda and Microsoft have partnerships with AMD – allowing support for AMD FSR.
However, whether or not they will be added in later updates remains to be seen. But if this is true, then do you believe this is an unfair gaming practice soon to run rampant in the industry? Let me know in the comments below!
