Starfield’s DLSS update goes fully live on Steam to a ‘mixed’ reaction from players

It was always a bit weird that Starfield launched without DLSS support, given the way Nvidia GPUs dominate the Steam Hardware and Software survey. Better late than never, though, and after some early help from modders and a beta test that launched on November 8, DLSS support is now fully live, meaning owners of compatible video cards can now take advantage of DLSS Super Resolution, Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing (DLAA), Nvidia Reflex Low Latency, and DLSS Frame Generation.

And yes, it makes a big difference. Bethesda may have partnered with AMD on the making of Starfield, but as we noted shortly after the DLSS beta began, Nvidia is still the king of upscaling. Testing with an RTX 4080 card revealed that DLSS 3.5 both performs and looks better than native rendering and AMD’s FSR, while Frame Generation “delivers a frame rate nearly double native at 4K, exceeding DLSS’s Ultra Performance mode, which has a render resolution of just 33%, and still looks absolutely fantastic.”
