Nvidia today released a new graphics driver for its graphics cards that adds support its DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology to 28 games. Plus, it’s now certified for Windows 10 and Windows 11.
The additional 28 DLSS games bring the total number of games supported by AI Image Scaling technology to more than 100 supported titles. These high-end games use DLSS by rendering lower resolution and upscaling to provide smoother frame rates without a noticeable compromise in image quality.
DLSS already works in Windows 11
Most of the new additions to DLSS are courtesy of the Unreal Engine 4 engine DLSS plug-in, which makes it easy for developers to integrate DLSS into games developed with that engine. An example is Alan Wake Remastered, which will be released next month with DLSS support, and with which Nvidia promises a performance increase of up to 2X in 4K resolution. Each GeForce RTX GPU can get over 60fps at maximum 4K settings with DLSS enabled, and that means cards like the RTX 2080 Ti jump from an average of 70fps to 120fps, according to Nvidia.
Industry, which will launch on September 30, will also include DLSS support, along with support for a new AI-based anti-aliasing mode from Nvidia DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing) on the Elder Scrolls Online test servers. DLAA is designed “for users who have free GPU space and want higher levels of image quality,” according to Nvidia. It works in a similar way to DLSS, but instead of improving performance, it improves image quality.
Nvidia’s current DLSS driver also includes Windows 11 support, with optimizations for Alan Wake Remastered, Deathloop, Diablo II: Resurrected, Far Cry 6, Hot Wheels Unleashed, Industry, New World, and World War Z: Aftermath.
