DLSS, a technology I don’t want to understand because then it won’t feel like magic anymore, was previously only availabley for people who play windows games. Thanks to some work from Valve and Nvidia, that should change.
An official list of games that support the feature hasn’t been released, but you can take a rough look at things Comparison of Nvidia’s list of DLSS-supported titles to those compatible with proton, a tool released by Valve earlier this year that allows Linux users to play Windows games on their computer through aCompatibility Layer “.
One strange kink in the announcement, however, is DLSS compatibility was designed with Proton in mind and is not intended for games with official Linux ports. Even if some games have a dedicated Linux version, there is a chance that using DLSS will result in better performance than through this “compatibility later” run natively.
Aside from the fact that there is no official list of the games, there is also no release date for the announcement, so Linux gamers just have to hope / assume that it will be sometime this year.
