Nvidia DLSS is now used in 120 video games, including the new games Back 4 Blood, Baldur's Gate 3 and Alan Wake Remastered. The technology promises significant increases in performance for individual titles, sometimes in the double-digit percentage range. 

The so-called “Deep Learning Super Sampling”, DLSS for short, is currently the hot shit of the tech company Nvidia alongside ray tracing. The use of AI algorithms is intended to increase performance in video games. Like AMD FidelityX, Nvidia's counterpart is an upscaling technology that uses a low resolution as the basis for the result extrapolated by artificial intelligence.

Currently only for RTX graphics cards

However, there is one limitation with DLSS: only graphics cards of the RTX model series support the technology, currently: RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Super; RTX 2070 and RTX 2070 Super; RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super as well as RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX.

With the ten other DLSS games released in October, Nvidia DLSS has improved the performance of 120 games and applications, including the recently released Back 4 Blood. In a series of co-op campaign levels with random elements, a unique equipment system and eight different characters, each with their own perks and stats, players battle the enemy to reclaim the world while the very survival of all humanity is at stake stands. According to Nvidia, the increase in performance is up to 46 percent.

In October, DLSS was also introduced in Baldur's Gate 3, Chivalry 2, Crysis Remastered Trilogy, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Sword and Fairy 7, and Swords of Legends Online. Additionally, DLSS is also available for the recently released Alan Wake Remastered and FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch titles.

After the release of Crysis Remastered last year, which included both DLSS and Ray Tracing, Crytek and partner Saber Interactive released the Crysis Remastered Trilogy. All three Crysis Remastered titles, which hit the market on October 15th, feature DLSS and ray tracing reflections, as well as improved textures, models, lighting and environments to give PC gamers the ultimate Crysis experience.

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the performance with DLSS at 4K with maximum settings and activated ray tracing is more than doubled, explains Nvidia. And in Rise of the Tomb Raider, DLSS increases the performance by up to 75 percent, so that all GeForce RTX players can play in 4K and at maximum settings with over 60 FPS.
