Nvidia has announced the integration of DLSS into eight new games this week. These include competitive online FPS and MMO titles powered by Unreal Engine 5.

Not all Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) is created equally. Although DLSS 3 is the latest with added Frame Generation tech, Nvidia hasn’t given up on its previous generation DLSS 2. It’s just as well, since the former is only available to RTX 4000 graphics card owners.

Both provide a substantial frame rate uplift with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). They render games at a lower resolution before upscaling it to a higher one, reconstructing the image using a huge dataset. It’s all very complicated, but the main point is that it’s less taxing for your gaming PC and results in a higher frame rate.

DLSS 3 Frame Generation is coming to:

  • The Finals
  • SCUM
  • Throne and Liberty

DLSS 2 is coming to:

  • Fortnite Chapter 5
  • Sands of Aura
  • Silent Rain
  • Soulslinger: Envoy of Death
  • The Devourer: Hunted Souls

The majority of these titles use Epic’s Unreal Engine 5. The Finals and Fortnite Chapter 5 also feature ray tracing for enhanced light reproduction. Just don’t forget to download the latest GeForce Game Ready drivers to benefit from the new optimisations.

Additionally, Nvidia is updating its feature set on some titles. For instance, Call of Duty: Warzone is getting DLSS 3 Frame Generation, DLAA, and Reflex. The Finals receives DLSS 3 and Reflex. Soulslinger: Envoy of Death, on the other hand, gets DLSS 2 and DLAA. Scum is gets the DLSS 3 Frame Generation treatment on supported hardware, with DLSS 2 covering older GPUs. The remaining games simply add DLSS 2.

As a reminder, DLAA refers to Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing which, as its name implies, is a form of AA powered by RTX. Reflex, meanwhile, is a latency reduction technology that helps keep mouse movements speedy and competitive. Since Frame Generation increases latency, the two features go hand-in-hand.

On an RTX 4090, Nvidia claims up to 73% fps uplift in The Finals at 4K with RT using DLSS 3 Performance plus Frame Generation. That’s nothing compared to Throne and Liberty’s 128% fps increase again using DLSS 3 Performance plus Frame Generation.

In parallel to this, Nvidia is also celebrating a milestone. Over 530 games and applications feature RTX support, be it simple ray tracing and DLSS image reconstruction or Frame Generation and ray reconstruction technologies. It’s a good time to be on Team Green.
