Unlike console stores, Steam is very flexible and responsive with requests for returns and refunds for games purchased on the platform. Still, however, the store still has its money-back rules, which is why the account of a Reddit user who got a refund for battlefield 2042 even without meeting these criteria.
The post comes from Roboserg, who shows that he asked for a refund for the first time and was denied, receiving an auto-response from Steam. In the response, Valve’s platform reiterates that its returns policy requires that the game has been played less than two hours and that the order is placed within 14 days of its purchase.
The user, however, insisted, explaining that he played more than two hours because that was the time he spent trying to get the game to work. Eventually your order was reviewed by a person who chose to offer you a refund.
The situation does not seem to be unique to battlefield 2042 and apparently it could happen for any game buggy enough and with the user insisting enough, until being “heard” by a person instead of a robot.
But the case for EA’s game draws attention because it’s a huge recent release that has disappointed many of its players. Perhaps Roboserg’s account will open the door to more insistent requests for a refund on Valve’s platform.
Extra frame adders from AMD and Nvidia were compared in one game. FSR 3 vs DLSS 3 can now only be pitted in Immortals of Aveum
FSR 3’s supersampling technology with Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) was tested in the game Immortals of Aveum, comparing different modes, and at the same time comparing with DLSS 3. Currently, this is the only game where you can directly compare DLSS 3 and FSR 3.
If we talk specifically about this comparison, then on the RTX 4090 video card, activating FSR 3 gives a greater performance increase, while the 1% Low and 0.2% Low indicators are less than those of DLSS 3.
In both cases, there were stutters and other manifestations of lack of performance, which was due to poor optimization of the game as a whole, but in the case of DLSS 3 there were still fewer problems.
Another interesting feature is that the game allows you to enable FSR 3 while also enabling Nvidia Reflex to reduce latency.
As for image quality, the authors from WCCF Tech did not notice any particular difference. At the same time, Nvidia DLAA cannot be enabled in the game, but FSR AA can be activated, which improves image clarity. As a reminder, there is no scaling in these modes.
You can now try out the frame renderer from FSR 3 in 20 games, including Hogwarts Legacy and Starfield, directly from the driver
AMD today launched FSR 3 supersampling technology with Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF). Currently it is only available in Forspoken and Immortals of Aveum, but this is in full form. It turns out that today you can try it out in another two dozen games.
Even at the presentation, AMD said that it would integrate Fluid Motion Frames directly into the driver, which would allow the technology to be activated in virtually any game. The full launch of this option will take place in 2024, but now the preliminary version of Adrenalin software allows you to try Fluid Motion Frames in 20 games, including a number of bestsellers.
The list of supported games includes the following projects:
- A Plague Tale – Requiem
- Borderlands 3
- Dead Space
- Deep Rock Galactic
- Dying Light 2
- Far Cry 6
- Ghostwire: Tokyo
- Hitman 3
- Hogwarts Legacy
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Resident Evil 3
- Resident Evil 4
- Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
- Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
- The Last of Us Part 1
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Unfortunately, if in the usual version Fluid Motion Frames is available for video cards starting from the Radeon RX 5000, and is also available on Nvidia and Intel cards, then the version with the driver, firstly, cuts off competitors’ cards, which is logical, and secondly, limits support to only the latest RX 7000 models.
GeForce RTX 4090 is ready for Counter-Strike 2. The video card produces 543 FPS in the game
Almost immediately after the release of Counter-Strike 2, Nvidia explained what to expect in the game when using 3D cards from the GeForce RTX 40 line.
With Full HD resolution and maximum graphics settings, the flagship of the line – GeForce RTX 4090 – produces 543 FPS. Nvidia assured that the GeForce RTX 4090 in Counter-Strike 2 is 4.5 times faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 and 2.9 times faster than the GeForce RTX 2080.
At the other end is the GeForce RTX 4060, but even it provides more than 200 FPS under the same conditions. The performance gap between the GeForce RTX 4060 and GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is quite small, unlike other models in the line.
