Which supports image upscaling for the Nvidia, AMD, and Intel versions of the technology, is now available.
Recently, an unofficial Skyrim mod that supports Nvidia’s DLSS, AMD’s FSR, and even Intel’s XeSS made it possible to play the epic Bethesda RPG with upscaled resolution technology.
The Elder Scrolls 5 is notable for its breathtaking visuals and awe-inspiring vistas, making it one of the most immersive open-world games available. Of course, the game has aged, especially in terms of its graphics, at 11 years old. However, mods have helped keep the game in good shape over the past decade or so.
As a result, many fans welcome the opportunity to enhance the game’s overall appearance. PureDark, a Nexus Mods user, was behind the announcement of the unofficial Skyrim image upscaling mod. There will undoubtedly be a lot of people who are eager to give it a shot and see how it affects things.
For those who are unaware, upscaling is a piece of algorithmic technology that, in a nutshell, redraws pixels on the screen to make the image look like it is at a higher resolution without the game actually being at a higher resolution. This means that the user’s hardware is not put under additional strain, especially on a PC.
Players can now evaluate the performance of Skyrim with supported upscaling by installing the mod. The algorithm from Nvidia, AMD, and Intel—the three major tech companies—is supported by the add-on.
The first of these, Deep Learning Super Sampling, is only available for Nvidia RTX graphics cards. The other two, on the other hand, are more open-source and compatible with any GPU.
More specifically, the mod is compatible with AMD’s FSR, or FidelityFX Super Resolution, version 2.0. Nvidia DLAA is also supported by the mod, but again, an RTX card is required for use. Before using PureDark’s add-on, a few plugins, such as SKSE, will also be required.
Skyrim can still be played in a lot of different ways thanks to mods, which are a popular way to keep the game alive. Right now, there are graphical tweaks, new missions, towns, NPCs, bug fixes, and even a few that just make things a little silly. No doubt, the modding local area has helped keep the 2011 RPG at the center of attention for such a long time.
Skyrim fans are continuing to keep themselves busy with a variety of new ways to play the game while Bethesda continues to work on The Elder Scrolls 6, though no one knows when this next installment will be released. People will eventually be ready to move on, but clearly, that time has not yet arrived.
