Nvidia DLSS 3 continues to increase overall game quality

While the updates to the games using the feature certainly have been impressive, DLSS 3 has been improving, per Nvidia, by utilizing Nvidia’s AI Supercomputer. By utilizing the in-house technology, it makes it possible for Nvidia to constantly make the feature worth it not only to players but the developers of major titles.

The new updates arriving in Q1 include*:

  • AI network enhancements for DLSS Frame Generation that better take advantage of game engine data, improving UI stability and image quality during fast movement.
  • An updated AI network for DLSS Super Resolution Ultra Performance mode, improving fine detail stability and overall image quality.
  • An updated AI network for NVIDIA DLAA that improves image quality, reduces ghosting, and improves edge smoothness in high-contrast scenarios.

The first three games to get the updates will be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Portal with RTX, and Cyberpunk 2077. All of the updates to DLSS 3 and the compatible games will happen via both Nvidia’s Game Reader drivers and in-game patches. Nvidia was clear to note that “all GeForce RTX gamers” will see benefits from the improvements due to DLSS 3 games being backwards compatible with DLSS 2 technology.

Rather than just mention the updates, Nvidia also released a look to show some of what users can expect to see and notice.

DLSS 3 is currently available in 17 games. Another 33 games and apps will receive DLSS 3 integration in the near future. In addition to the DLSS 3 improvements reveal, Nvidia announced the launch of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card, which will be available on January 5.
