Nvidia Performance Boosting DLSS Tech arrives in Battlefield V this week

Outside of hardware accelerated ray tracing, the most noteworthy feature of Nvidia’s RTX series graphics cards is their support for a feature known as DLSS, which utilises the power of machine learning to upscale images to deliver a similar experience to native resolution rendering while providing increased performance levels.   

On February 12th, Battlefield V will receive an update on PC which will enable DLSS support on the platform, though at the time of writing this feature is only accessible on Nvidia RTX series graphics cards, such as the RTX 2060, RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. 

When compared to TAA, which is commonly used in most modern PC games, DLSS can often provide sharper images, allowing games to both look better and deliver greater performance levels. This is great news for anyone who wants a great balance between performance and graphical quality. 

Nvidia creates their DLSS algorithm using a supercomputer, which uses rendered frames at standard display resolutions and ultra-high resolutions (16K) to create a deep learning algorithm which can upscale rendered frames on the fly. In the case of Battlefield V, DLSS will provide enough of a performance upgrade to counteract the performance impact of the game’s real-time raytraced reflections. 

Over time Nvidia will be able to improve their DLSS algorithm by adding more data to their supercomputing workloads, allowing the performance gains offered by DLSS to increase or for the graphical quality of DLSS to be increased.

Battlefield 5’s next update will also bring the game’s 4-player co-op Combined Arms mode into the game, which will allow players to challenge the game’s AI across eight unique missions, each of which spans four objectives across a variety of maps. 

So far DLSS has been used in Final Fantasy XV and 3DMARK Port Royal, showcasing high levels of image quality and notable boosts to in-game performance. We look forward to seeing what kind of impact DLSS has on Battlefield V, both in terms of graphical fidelity and performance.
