Nvidia has released a new update allowing owners of its 30 and 40 series GPUs to unlock the Resizable BAR feature to boost Starfield gameplay performance.

Improved Performance In Starfield With Nvidia's New Update

Nvidia has rolled out an over-the-air (OTA) update enhancing the Resizable BAR (ReBAR) feature on its prestigious 30 or 40 series GPUs. This update plays a significant role in heightening gaming performance, specifically in the high-quality game, Starfield, a captivating space exploration epic from Bethesda.

Update Details

The novel update presents a Resizable BAR profile tailored for Starfield for RTX 30 or 40-series GPU owners. This enhancement has the potential to provide a slight performance impression, improving gaming quality and experience. Before this update, players of these high-quality games spent time manually prompting the Resizable BAR feature to operate within Starfield. This process has been alleviated as Nvidia has added this beneficial feature to their internal whitelist. With the application of this update, the feature will be activated automatically, removing manual intervention and further facilitating seamless gaming.

How To Use ReBAR In Starfield

To implement ReBAR in Starfield, an OTA update for the RTX 30 or 40 series GPU has to be stage-set by restarting the system. After this, the installation of the profile can be verified through a navigation path – 'C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\NvProfileUpdaterPlugin' folder. Check for log files in this folder that may indicate an update. If available, an image alike the one from Sean Pelletier can be detected.

Once the update has been correctly installed, gamers can observe a notable performance improvement in Starfield, further enhancing this high-quality gaming experience. It is crucial to remember, however, that this feature is exclusive to RTX 30 and 40-series owners only. Players employing older GPUs can still enhance their performance using workarounds such as the use of FSR or by modding DLSS into Starfield.
