    Never heard of gamescope though, but i have been hoping for something like it sincel ike 2012.
    How are they so far behind Windows? Nvidia’s control panel on Windows is dated and sluggish compared to Nvidia’s Settings on Linux. Aside from that their driver has pretty much the same functionality as their Windows counterpart unlike AMD who’s missing a ton of functionality. Only person who has the graphics GUI down is Intel with Command Center on Windows. Hopefully they bring it over to Linux.

    Wayland needs to get HDR working. Now we have affordable QD-OLED monitors that provide real HDR and they’ll start getting cheaper.

      I've recently tried out Gamescope on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS using this PPA:

      https://launchpad.net/~ar-lex/+archive/ubuntu/gamescope

      Worked without problems through Lutris on my AMD Radeon R9 380, with a nicely smooth gaming experience on an Unreal Engine 4 title.

        There are a couple of PPAs last time I checked. I use this one:

        https://launchpad.net/~samoilov-lex/...untu/gamescope

        It was the only one that worked when I was still in 21.10 and I could not compile it from source using the available packages in the distro. I use it for my old games and it works really well. Will Steam eventually incorporate gamescope into the launcher?

          I wonder if Gamescope (or another utility) could implement support for supersampling on a per-game basis. It is possible to achieve this with advanced NVIDIA driver settings, but it affects an entire display, not a single application.

          Although it is expensive, supersampling is the best kind of antialiasing you can get (and it can be used to make games that use TAA or FXAA appear sharper).

            Using gamescope-git from the AUR, this is how I upscale 1080p to 4K through Steam with gamescope:

            Code:
            MANGOHUD_CONFIG=ram,vram,swap,cpu_temp,gpu_temp,vulkan_driver DXVK_ASYNC=1 gamescope -f -h 1080 -H 2160 -Y mangohud %command%
            -Y is the flag for NIS
