Microsoft has announced the launch of FPS Boost for five of Bethesda’s iconic titles that were recently added to the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
The following games have received FPS Boost support on Xbox Series X | S consoles:
- Dishonored: Definitive Edition
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
- Fallout 4
- Fallout 76
As noted by the developers, the FPS Boost function will provide an increase in the number of frames per second up to 60 fps instead of the original 30 fps.
To experience FPS Boost, you need to have the latest firmware installed on the console, and the function itself must be activated in the “Compatibility Options”, which are located in the “Manage games and add-ons” section. It is also noted that not only owners of these games, but also Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to use FPS Boost.
Intel says older games may not run well on Arc cards
Intel Arc graphics cards have issues running older games – they will run but slower than similar Nvidia/AMD cards. Games based on the DirectX 11 and DirectX 9 graphics APIs are reported to experience significant framerate drops. The company explained this by poor optimization of games for new cards.
Intel Graphics spokesman Tom Petersen explained that some games on DirectX 11 will work as well as on other cards, but others may slow down. It is assumed that this is due to the peculiarities of the video card drivers. Older types of GUIs rely on the GPU driver for memory management.
According to Petersen, Intel needs more time to improve and optimize graphics cards for games. At the same time, he clarified that Intel cards work very differently than Nvidia counterparts.
He also clarified that Arc accelerators have been optimized for games running on the new DirectX 12 and Vulcan APIs. For example, the version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider on the Intel Arc A770 card produced about 80 FPS when using DX12. And on DX11, the rate dropped to 40 FPS.
Earlier in China, they introduced the A380 video card in the version from MSI.

Valve Corporation has begun accepting orders for the Steam Deck gaming system from gamers from Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. At the same time, the manufacturer notes that those who ordered the console earlier will receive it on time.
In phase one, Steam Deck was available in the US, Canada, UK, and select European countries starting February 25th. In Asian countries, the console is sold with the help of Komodo. In terms of pricing, the console is priced at 800 yen in Japan, NT$13,380 in Taiwan, NT$3,288 in Hong Kong, and 589,000 won in South Korea.
In addition, the company will show the work of the console at BitSummit and Tokyo Game Show, which should draw attention to it. It is also noted that buyers from the Asian region will receive an updated version of the Steam Deck.
Earlier it was reported that the company has solved the problems with production, so before the end of the year, many can get the console and at a very good price.
