AMD and Bethesda Softworks They resigned a exclusive partnership to optimize and implement specific graphics features starfield, space role-playing game coming out on September 6th. The two companieswork together to bring outstanding performances and stunning visuals to the sprawling Starfield universe on Xbox consoles and gaming PCs with Ryzen 7000 and Radeon 7000 processors“, says a press release.
In a video, Todd Howard, Starfield Executive Game Director, and Jack Huynh, SVP & GM, Computing and Graphics Group at AMD specifically mention the integration of AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 upscaling technology.
Immediately, There has been some debate online about the partnershipspecies given the latest news Therefore, games associated with AMD partnerships do not implement DLSS. Aside from the question, which should be dismissed as coincidence for now as there is no evidence of anti-competitive bans either on Reddit (r/Amd or r/nvidia) that Twitter players commented on the news Forwarding the request to Bethesda not to oust other upscaling technologies such as DLSS and XeSS from Intel.
Not only because DLSS 3 could be of great help with such a complex game on all those platforms with GeForce RTX 4000 GPUs, but also because that way the range of under-the-counter deals that AMD hardware owners don’t fallen, expanded would be even more unclear as the society is seen as a proponent of open source and agnostic solutions.
Still others see AMD’s involvement a sign that Starfield’s ray tracing implementation isn’t all that strong, as Radeon GPUs don’t excel in this regard (or at least NVIDIA is ahead of them): there are therefore fears that console-like ray tracing will be incorporated in a lightweight way, with no real differentiating contribution to the PC version. Still others, meaner, see Bethesda + AMD as the perfect mix for a “bug festival.”
Apart from the doubts, hopes or complaints of the players, We have the feeling (and we can’t say more) that there will be developments in that matter that they will make “everyone happily ever after.” Let’s hope we don’t get the wrong “feeling”.
Assuming that DLSS could be implemented by modders, as has been the case with other titles, we’re pretty sure NVIDIA and Bethesda have a common interest in working together (if only NVIDIA were the second-best gaming GPU manufacturer), and AMD would like to stamp out the rumors of the last few weeks.
