AMD blocking DLSS support for sponsored games?

Based on the company's responses, or lack thereof in some cases, it appears as though AMD is actively blocking developers from including support for non-FSR upscaling tech in games that they sponsor. It's pretty sad when NVIDIA comes out looking pro-consumer based on how it handled similar questions from the media.

Its a dumb move by AMD especially when FSR works with all NVIDIA GPUs and its open sourced. Also modders will eventually replace FSR with DLSS in AMD sponsored games like they've been doing and vice versa with DLSS only games...

 

NVIDIA is already anti-consumer enough but now its AMD's turn.

AMD was always anti-consumer (as most Corporations are by nature profits > consumers), it just wasn't as egregious as Nvidia's transgressions so many flew under the radar.

 

I guess the idea here is FSR is available on all hardware while DLSS is not so Nvidia needs to get with the program and make DLSS on a certain level available on AMD hardware like they did (kinda) with G-sync once Freesync was made available by AMD. FSR is continuing to make improvements but still isn't on DLSS's level.

DLSS requires the tensor cores that are a part of RTX GPUs. If it were possible to make DLSS function across the board, NVIDIA would have made a stink about the ability to use it on cards like the 16- and 10-series. Just like how enhanced variable refresh rate tech, such as the ability for it to operate as low as 1 Hz when FreeSync typically bottoms out around 48 Hz, is only offered on G-Sync monitors that have NVIDIA's hardware module.

Ah yes.... "requires"

 

I don't like what AMD is doing but I understand.

It's war and they both play dirty.

 

DLSS or not, I'll be playing Starfield. 🙂

thank god for modders, starfield was saved right at the start with the DLSS mod. I promptly installed it without issues, I really hope this is not a trend. Forza motorsport is coming out soon and it might be as ign calls it a masterpiece if the early previews are anything to go by.  fingers crossed it has working DLSS
