NVIDIA enables DLSS in four new games in order to boost their performance, and it seems to give good results.
What is NVIDIA DLSS?
NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is a technique that uses artificial intelligence and sophisticated algorithms for graphics cards to increase the performance in frames per second in the execution of games.
NVIDIA set out to redefine real-time representation through AI-based super-resolution and the truth is that the new features in version 2.0 of the software, together with the increase in capacity and use of dedicated AI processors that include its latest generations of graphics cards (known as Tensor Cores), have allowed it to improve its performance, stability or image quality customization.
How does NVIDIA DLSS work?
The technique behind the NVIDIA DLSS is well known. The company has trained its deep neural network to handle tens of thousands of high-resolution images, but rendered by supercomputers at very low frame rates.
The motion vectors of the images generated by the game engine tell the neural network which objects in the scene are moving from one frame to the next and thus calculate how the next one will look. The result is compared to an actual image rendered at ultra high quality and the differences are included in the network for further learning.
The result is the representation of images with similar quality at a higher frame rate or to achieve the “magic” of generating images at higher resolution with reasonable FPS rates.
- GeForce RTX 3050: Ray tracing and DLSS 2.0 with an affordable price
- Radeon RX 6800 and 6800 XT tests show NVIDIA has a more advanced architecture
- Intel and UCSC work on a promising alternative to NVIDIA’s DLSS
New games with NVIDIA DLSS
NVIDIA has pushed the program for developers to use this technology in their games and added one of the most used engines, Unreal Engine 4, to speed up its deployment. Now the company announced four new games that support DLSS. NVIDIA has published the performance improvements they achieve in their tests.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War: The last delivery of Activision comes with raytracing, NVIDIA Reflex, NVIDIA Ansel, NVIDIA Highlights and the commented NVIDIA DLSS that increases the speed of frames up to 85% to 4K in the GeForce RTX.
War Thunder: The game PvP multiplatform free and extremely popular, promises to accelerate the performance in 4K up to 30%.
Enlisted: First-person MMO shooter increases fps by up to 55% at 4K
Ready or Not: Inspired by the classic SWAT games of yesteryear an ongoing alpha version adds support for ray tracing and an improvement that the company places at 120% at 4K using DLSS.
