PC gamers face a never-ending conflict between resolution, graphics effects, and frame rate. Crank up the resolution or the graphics settings, and frame rate stutters. Choose smooth gameplay, and you’re stuck with 1080p graphics. NVDIA DLSS puts an end to the compromises. Now PC gamers can experience ultra-high resolution graphics, with all the latest effects including real-time ray tracing, and still enjoy buttery-smooth, consistent, frame rates.
NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is a revolutionary advancement, adding supercomputer-level AI super resolution rendering technology to your gaming PC. Available exclusively on NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX™ GPUs, DLSS uses the dedicated Tensor Core AI processor to construct sharp, higher resolution images from a lower resolution, and boosting your frame rates for your games.
Uncompromised quality with higher performance
NVIDIA DLSS is groundbreaking new AI rendering technology that leverages the power of the Tensor Core AI processors found only on NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs.
DLSS produces graphics at ultra-high resolutions, employing the latest features and effects like ray tracing. The advanced AI of DLSS means that only a fraction of the pixels processed by your GPU are rendered conventionally. The resulting image quality is incredibly sharp and detailed, comparable to native resolution.
The huge win with DLSS is that upgraded graphics capabilities come without a performance cost. Frame rates are also boosted, and stability of frames rates is improved. Your gaming experience goes to the next level.
AI-powered performance boost with supercomputer performance
How does DLSS work this graphics magic? It all comes down to the Tensor Cores found on NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs.
These second-generation Tensor Cores offer unprecedented AI supercomputing power. Teraflops of processing power runs a trained AI network that processes graphics at a lower resolution, ensuring high frame rates. That training includes a knowledge base of super high-resolution images (included in Game Ready Drivers) to compare against. DLSS then generates a higher resolution image, sharpens it, optimizes it, and removes any digital artifacts. Because of the AI training, DLSS is also able to supplement details in a higher resolution output that aren’t present in the low-resolution image.
And NVIDIA DLSS does this all in real-time, while also boosting frame rates. With DLSS performance mode active, a GeForce RTX 3080 card with Max graphics setting and ray tracing enabled can output “Cyberpunk 2077” in 4K with a 333% boost in frame rates.
Customizable image quality options
The power of NVIDIA’s Tensor Cores is completely under your control.
DLSS lets you choose from various image quality modes, ranging from Quality to Ultra-Performance. These modes focus the Tensor Core’s horsepower and AI on different areas of graphics performance, controlling the rendering resolution versus frame rate boosting. You choose the aspect of each game you play that is of higher importance to your experience.
How big a difference can the various DLSS image quality options make in what you see onscreen? When in Performance mode, you enjoy up to 4x AI super resolution. That means games rendered at a native 1080p resolution are displayed at 4K resolution. The new Ultra-Performance mode enables up to 9x AI super resolution. That translates to graphics rendered at 1440p resolution being outputted at an incredible 8K resolution.
