Nvidia Reveals DLSS 3 and it’s Amazing Upscaling Technology

DLSS 3, Next version of Nvidia’s Upscaling Tech for Further Boosting Games Performance

Nvidia gave an early look at the next generation of its Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) upscaling technology during the launch of its RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 cards today. According to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, DLSS 3 can increase speed by up to four times when compared to merely rendering at native resolution.

According to Nvidia, more than 35 games and applications have already integrated this technology, with the first games anticipated to be released in October. DLSS 3 will be available only on the newest RTX 40-series GPUs.

Nvidia demonstrated how DLSS 3 was able to raise Cyberpunk 2077’s framerate out from below 30fps to around 100fps. Performance was only increased to roughly 60fps with the older DLSS 2 tech. In a second example, Microsoft Flight Simulator’s framerate increased from the mid-50s to more than 100fps when using DLSS 3. The specific graphical setting or resolution of these demonstrations, however, were not specified.

When using Nvidia graphics cards, DLSS is meant to extract additional performance from games. As a result, frame rates are increased at the same resolution or greater resolutions emerge without sacrificing performance. DLSS functions by running games at a lower resolution internally and upgrading them to higher resolutions using machine learning algorithms. As an example, a game may look to be running in 4K while actually running at 1080p – a significantly less demanding resolution.

Nvidia claims that DLSS 3 can improve performance in CPU-limited games by up to 100%. It also includes Nvidia Reflex support to reduce latency and improve responsiveness, and it can generate completely new frames instead of just new pixels (thanks to Optical Multi Frame Generation). According to Nvidia, DLSS can render up to seven-eighths of the game’s pixels, resulting in a significant performance gain.

Nvidia claims that DLSS 3 will benefit from improved image quality in addition to frame rate gains. The Optical Flow Accelerator function in DLSS 3 is capable of following objects in scenarios rather than simply pixels, which means it should have a better knowledge of graphical aspects like shadows, resulting in reduced stutter.

DLSS 3 is only available on Nvidia’s new 40-series graphics cards, unlike prior versions, which operated on hardware dating back to Nvidia’s 20-series GPUs. That’s because DLSS 3 is driven by the new fourth-generation Tensor Cores and Optical Flow Accelerator on GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs. Prior generations of Nvidia GPUs, such as the 30- and 20-series, lacked this DLSS 3-specific circuitry.

Nvidia was the first big manufacturer to provide AI upscaling technology; competitor AMD followed suit with its own version, termed FidelityFX Super Resolution, for its gpus. Meanwhile, Intel’s Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) will try to provide similar gains for its GPUs, with promising early results. The rivalry is starting to heat up, and Nvidia is just no doubt expecting that DLSS 3 will provide another reason for gamers to choose its hardware.
