PC Gamers get the best performance from machines equipped with a GeForce RTX™ card featuring NVIDIA DLSS. This combination delivers upgraded graphics capabilities without a performance cost. 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 such as the Best Buy exclusive MSI GeForce RTX™ 3080 SEA HAWK X 10G LHR. Learn more about DLSS, then enter this contest and you might win the new MSI SEA HAWK for yourself.
What can DLSS do for your gaming
By teaming up with world renowned video game developers, NVIDIA developed DLSS which taps into the power of a deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates and generates beautiful, sharp images for your games. AI rendering on dedicated Tensor Cores gives you incredible performance, pushing up frame rates and giving you the headroom needed to maximize graphics settings and resolution, even up to 8K.
And the image quality enhancements are totally under your control. Choose the settings you want for the gaming experience you want. Focus the Tensor Core’s horsepower and AI on different areas of graphics performance, controlling the rendering resolution versus frame rate boosting. DLSS brings PC gaming to a level you can’t get in any other gaming format. And it’s available in a variety of games from the biggest blockbusters like Cyberpunk 2077 and Fortnite to indie favorites like Pumpkin Jack, with new games being released regularly.
For example, Nvidia teamed up with Activision, Raven Software, and Infinity Ward to bring four DLSS options to Call of Duty: Warzone so you can find the perfect balance between image quality and performance. DLSS maintains native image quality while including the significant performance boost—up to 70% at 4K—that DLSS users have come to expect. The extra performance enables higher graphical settings and higher resolutions. The RTX 3060 and higher deliver 100 FPS at 1440p, and enables over 100 FPS at 4K resolution on the RTX 3060 Ti and higher. Learn more about how DLSS affects performance in COD: Warzone in this video:
