NVIDIA Teaming with Valve and the Linux Gaming Community to Bring DLSS to Proton


Today’s news about DLSS coming to Doom Eternal, Red Dead Redemption 2, and other titles was only the beginning. With over 130 titles and applications having adopted its AI-powered super sampling technology, NVIDIA will be bringing it to Linux as well. NVIDIA is partnering with Valve and the Linux gaming community to bring support to the Steam Play Proton API. It will require the upcoming big 470 series driver release.

NVIDIA, Valve, and the Linux gaming community are collaborating to bring NVIDIA DLSS to Proton – Linux gamers will be able to use the dedicated AI cores on GeForce RTX GPUs to boost frame rates for their favorite Windows Games running on the Linux operating system. Support for Vulkan titles is coming this month with DirectX support coming in the Fall.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
