Game filters are a new technology that allows games to apply post-processing effects in real-time. Low-spec gamers, which make up most of the gaming population, will ignore this feature, thinking it would lower their frames. However, when used in moderation, this feature can provide better aesthetics with minimal impact on your GPU.
This guide is a detailed description of the difference between Nvidia/AMD Game filters and how you can use them to make your experience playing Elden Ring better. Elden Ring is an action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware. The game was directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki and made in collaboration with fantasy novelist George R. R. Martin, who provided material for the game’s setting.
