The Premium edition of Starfield will be bundled with higher-end CPUs like Ryzen 9 7950X3D, 7900X3D, 7950X, 7900X and 7900 and higher-end GPUs like Radeon RX 7900XTX, 7900XT, 6950 XT, 6900XT and many more.

The game is of galactic proportions, quite literally. It has been designed with the top AMD GPUs like Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 6800 series in mind.

Executive director of Bethesda, Todd Howard, has said about the port of Starfield to PC, that it will be a modder’s paradise. This has been backed up by reputed Modder PureDark, who confirmed that Nvidia’s DLSS 3 support would be added to Starfield via a mod, probably behind a Patreon Wall.

Having an exclusive partnership with AMD, Starfield only currently supports AMD’s FSR 2.0. Many fans are disappointed over the lack of DLSS 3 support on Nvidia GPUs. This means that Nvidia GPU users will have to rely on raw frame generation until future updates are available from the developers.
