As I said in the opening of this article, NVIDIA's new DLSS technology is one of my most anticipated for Team Green this year and into the future. We're looking at a 40% performance gain for similar, and most of the time better looking graphics. If the performance gain was 5-10% then this would be a different story, but a 40% gain is something people spend hundreds, and sometimes thousands of dollars to achieve.
DLSS is something that badly optimized games like PUBG (at least at launch and for nearly a year after) will benefit from the most, the same goes for new AAA titles that push graphics to the boundaries but can't run on current-gen hardware. We could see NVIDIA step in with DLSS and hit performance numbers that are otherwise reserved for spending much more money on a graphics card upgrade.
The thing to remember here is that it is just 3DMark and a specific RTX-based test and then even more so that it's a DLSS specific feature test. This is not indicative of real-world gaming performance, but it is in line with what NVIDIA promised during the big Turing/GeForce RTX unveiling last October. We need something to test DLSS and now we have it - even though it's a run-once-and-forget-it type of deal... we now have our own data to check out.
What do you guys think of the DLSS feature test? Have you got a GeForce RTX card and run it yourself? What do you think of DLSS as a technology? Are you waiting for support in Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, ARK, or any other games? Let us know in the comments below.
