DLSS is evolving - Nvidia promises DLSS updates at CES
Nvidia's DLSS technology has changed a lot since its first incarnation, becoming more advanced and more capable with every update. At CES 2023, Nvidia has promised updates to their DLSS technology that apply to all functions of Nvidia's AI performance boosting technology, offering benefits to users of DLSS Frame Generation, DLAA (DLSS Anti Aliasing), and DLSS Super Resolution (DLSS 2).
Game updates are now in the works for The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077, and Portal with RTX that will give gamers the benefits of the latest improvements that Nvidia has made to DLSS, which includes AI network enhancements for DLSS Frame Generation, an improved version of DLSS Ultra Performance mode, and increased levels of image quality for DLAA. These improvements are detailed below.
NVIDIA DLSS is Always Learning, New Improvements Coming Soon
DLSS continues to improve through ongoing training on NVIDIA’s AI Supercomputer, and a new update delivers improvements to DLSS Super Resolution, NVIDIA DLAA, and DLSS Frame Generation. Since DLSS 3 games are backwards compatible with DLSS 2 technology, all GeForce RTX gamers will also benefit.
Upcoming DLSS improvements include:
- AI network enhancements for DLSS Frame Generation that better take advantage of game engine data, improving UI stability and image quality during fast movement.
- An updated AI network for DLSS Super Resolution Ultra Performance mode, improving fine detail stability and overall image quality.
- An updated AI network for NVIDIA DLAA that improves image quality, reduces ghosting, and improves edge smoothness in high contrast scenarios.
Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Portal with RTX will be the first to update with these new features in upcoming game patches.
Above and below are videos that showcases some of Nvidia's improvements to DLSS, including changes to DLSS 3 that increases UI stability and changes to DLSS's Ultra Performance mode that increases image quality.
Nvidia's DLSS technology will continue to improve, and we know this because it is currently one of Nvidia's strongest advantages that they can leverage against their competition. If DLSS' quality improves, Nvidia strengthens their RTX brand, and if DLSS improves it becomes harder for Nvidia's competitors to market their DLSS competitors. If Nvidia can keep DLSS ahead of competing solutions, they will retain critical mindshare amongst PC gamers. DLSS needs to be a first class solution for gamers, Nvidia's market position relies on it.
