Something small: Nvidia’s new DLSS 3 technology adds DLSS Frame Creation and Nvidia Reflex along with tried and tested superior DLSS resolution to enhance framerate even further. It will only work with RTX 40 series GPUs, with the cheapest price currently starting at $899. The first games it supports will arrive next month.
Along with the new RTX 40 . Series GPUsnvidia too announce The third generation of Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology, which can deliver up to four times the performance compared to rendering in native resolution.
Nvidia Show DLSS With RTX 20 series cards from four years ago, it’s now available in over 200 games and apps. It improves performance by allowing frames to be rendered internally at lower resolutions and upscaling them using dedicated AI accelerators inside RTX GPUs, called Tensor cores.
Nvidia improves this with DLSS 3 by adding multi-optical frame generation to create entirely new frames instead of just pixels, similar to motion interpolation found on TVs (although hopefully no input delay penalty). In performance mode, DLSS 3 reconstructs seven-eighths of the total pixels displayed. Ultra HD rebuilds three-quarters of the first frame (such as 1080p to 4K), with the second frame completely reconstructed.
Since multi-frame optical generation is implemented as an after-process on the GPU, it can increase the frame rate even in games with limited CPU, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator. Unfortunately, DLSS Frame Generation is powered by the new 4th generation Tensor cores and an optical flow accelerator for the Nvidia Ada Lovelace architecture, meaning it only works on RTX 40 GPUs.
Finally, DLSS 3 integrates as well Nvidia Reflex Technology, which synchronizes the graphics processing unit (GPU) and central processing unit (CPU), eliminating render queues and thus improving response and input lag.
More than 35 games and apps have announced support for the new version of DLSS, including Cyberpunk 2077, Hitman 3 and Stalker 2.
Justice, NetEase’s martial arts MMO, will be the first game to receive support for DLSS 3 through an update releasing on October 12. A Plague Tale: Requiem will be the first game with the new technology when it launches on October 18.
RTX 20 and 30 GPU owners will still have access to DLSS 2.0 and Nvidia Reflex in games that support DLSS 3.
