Computer Base reported that Valve Proton version 6.3-8, which is used to run Windows applications on Linux, now has official support for NVIDIA DLSS smart scaling technology in games with DirectX 11 and DirectX 12. Experimental DLSS support was implemented in the Proton version 6.3-7.
The Proton skin will be part of the new SteamOS 3.0 that Valve will be using on their laptop called the Steam Deck. Unfortunately, there will be no DLSS support on the device as the Steam Deck is built around AMD Zen2 / RDNA2 SoCs rather than NVIDIA Turing or Ampere architectures.
Proton 6.3-8 also adds support for the BattleEye anti-cheat system, which is used in various games, including Conan Exiles, DayZ, Planetside 2, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. In addition, the new version of Proton adds support for 24 projects from Steam:
