How Elden Ring Runs on Steam Deck
There’s some good news coming out of the Steam Deck community- it looks like Elden Ring is actually running better than expected.
Elden Ring is marked as a verified game so it can run normally on a Steam Deck. This open-world RPG can run at 30-40fps on medium settings.
One user, in particular, has reported that they’ve been able to run the game at 4K with a playable framerate, and they attribute this to AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution. The user was playing with high settings and states that the game is running at a playable fps which doesn’t dip under 30.
