News Highlights: Use DLSS to make your PC game work better
Ray Tracing and 4K are the most talked about capabilities of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX graphics cards. The DLSS feature these GPUs can use doesn’t get as much of a buzz, but it’s just as impressive – especially considering the magic it can work at frame rates for those playing on low- and mid-range hardware.
Here’s a quick look at what DLSS is, how it works, and which games support it.
What is DLSS?
DLSS, or Deep Learning Super Sampling, is a machine learning-based feature that leverages the AI Tensor Cores in NVIDIA’s RTX 20 and 30 series graphics cards. When DLSS is enabled, your GPU renders in-game graphics at a lower resolution and then uses AI to artificially upscale and enhance the images to a higher resolution without a performance heat. To accomplish this, Nvidia has “trained” its DLSS algorithm with a supercomputer built specifically for graphics display.
For example, instead of rendering a game at 4K, DLSS will display the game at 1440p, after which the machine learning algorithms go to work….
