Nvidia's DLSS Tech is now an official Unreal Engine 4 Plugin 

Nvidia has officially released its DLSS technology as an Unreal Engine 4 plugin, opening the technology to easier integration into one of gaming's most popular engines. 

DLSS is Nvidia's method of delivering AI-enhanced visuals to PC gamers, utilising the power of their RTX Tensor cores and their deep learning neural network to deliver higher framerates in modern PC games and quality levels that are close to or better than native resolution rendering. 

With DLSS, Nvidia RTX users can use the power of AI to turn a lower resolution image into a higher resolution output, reducing the work needed to generate high fidelity PC games to deliver higher levels of power efficiency or higher framerates. The image below showcases how DLSS# quality mode can impact Fortnite's PC performance, allowing the game to be played at Epic settings as more than 100 FPS at 4K. 

Users of Unreal Engine 4.26 can now integrate DLSS into their games using Nvidia's official plugin, allowing developers to add this Geforce exclusive feature to their games with ease. This plugin could make the number of games with DLSS support explode over the coming years, which is great news for Nvidia. 
 

     NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is groundbreaking AI rendering technology that takes visual fidelity to a whole new level using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on GeForce RTX™ GPUs. DLSS taps into the power of a deep learning neural network to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images for your games. Game devs now get performance headroom to maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolution.

Features:

- Uncompromised Quality with Higher Performance: Enjoy ray tracing and ultra-high resolutions with NVIDIA DLSS technology. It uses advanced AI rendering to produce image quality that’s comparable to native resolution--and sometimes even better--while only conventionally rendering a fraction of the pixels. New temporal feedback techniques give you incredibly sharp image details and improved stability from frame to frame.

- Customizable Options: DLSS lets you choose several image quality modes—from Quality to Ultra Performance. You can choose how you want to balance quality and performance by controlling the game’s internal rendering resolution. Performance mode enables up to 4X AI super resolution (i.e. 1080p -> 4K) while the new Ultra-Performance mode enables up to 9X AI super resolution (1440p -> 8K)

 

Nvidia's DLSS Tech is now an official Unreal Engine 4 Plugin  

Nvidia's DLSS technology is one of the company's killer features, guaranteeing huge performance uplifts for supported hardware while delivering similar or higher levels of image quality than native resolution rendering. As we have said many times before, AMD needs an answer to DLSS, as every game that adopts DLSS becomes another reason to buy Geforce over Radeon.

Pretty cool, I know it won't happen but it would be great if a fair few existing UE4 games were updated with DLSS2.Quote

Most existing games will use older versions of UE4, which would make updating them problematic.Quote
