GameScope, the micro-compositor formerly known as steamcompmgr, recently merged support for NVIDIA’s image scaling technology as of yesterday. Theoretically this means NVIDIA users should now be able to make use of GameScope (just make sure you add -Y or --nis-upscaling when using). Previously, only AMD users could make use of the technology (technically Intel has it too, albeit in limited capacity).

Don’t get too excited. Someone has already reported that the scaling technology doesn’t work on a 940M. Keep in mind you’ll also need NVIDIA’s latest beta driver as of the time of writing this, 515.43.04, in order to make use out of it.

But hopefully this will be good news if Valve was waiting for NVIDIA to support GameScope before releasing SteamOS 3 to be used on devices outside of the Steam Deck.
