Though Starfield hasn’t officially released yet, modders have made good use of the brief early acces period–with one releasing an upscaling mod that allows players to swap out AMD’s FSR2 tech for Nvidia DLSS or Intel XESS.
Due to Bethesda partnering exclusively with AMD for PC, the expansive sci-fi RPG is launching with support for FSR only, even though Nvidia graphics cards are more commonly used by PC gamers. Luckily, modders have been quick to make up for the absence, with Starfield Upscaler currently the top Starfield mod on Nexus Mods, as picked up by PC Gamer.
The mod was created by modder PureDark, and allows players to change out FSR, AMD’s upscaling tech, for Nvidia’s DLSS, or Intel’s XESS. The mod only supports DLSS 2, not the more recent iteration DLSS 3, but that means the mod should have compatibility with a broader selection of Nvidia cards. The upscaling mod has already been downloaded over 200,000 times, with the game still in early access.
