Bethesda has finally added a long-awaited option to Starfield that will improve performance on weaker computers. For now, it is only available on Steam.
Starfield is a game that debuted on the market in September last year. This is the first new universe in over 25 years from the creators responsible for, among others, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4That is Bethesda Game Studios. This time we’re talking about an open-world RPG set in space.
From now on, Starfield will provide more FPS on weaker PCs
Yesterday, the Americans announced the introduction of the long-promised technology support in the latest beta update AMD FIdelityFX Super Resolution 3. The waiting time was long because the competition’s solution – NVIDIA DLSS – was available in the game from November 2023.
In both cases it’s about increasing FPS thanks to the so-called supersampling. To put it simply, the image is initially rendered at a lower resolution and then used spatial scaling algorithms improved to pretend to be of higher resolution (i.e. clearer).
AMD FSR 3 is currently available for Steam userswho decide to enable beta updates. Then, in the game settings, select the “Display” tab and find the “Scaling” option.
The question is: will this one novelty make Starfield come alive? The game is currently rated “Mixed” on Steamand the number of players is not impressive and oscillates between 4,000 and 8,000. For comparison The Witcher 3: Wild Huntreleased in 2015, still boasts player numbers of 6,000 – 15,000.
