Benchmarks - 1080p

Wolfenstein: Youngblood has a few options for DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) so I've spent hours and hours running all of my NVIDIA graphics cards (including the insane $2499 graphics card in the TITAN RTX with its equally insane 24GB of GDDR6 memory) in the Performance, Balanced, and Quality modes of DLSS.

Performance Thoughts

Performance: This is where the huge fun was: seeing the edges of 200FPS average on the flagship TITAN RTX graphics card, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti isn't too far behind with 195FPS average. NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER isn't that far behind with 177FPS average in with DLSS set to Performance, while the GeForce RTX 2060 lags behind with just 53FPS average. DLSS chews up a hell of VRAM, which is where the RTX 2060 SUPER comes in to play with its 8GB framebuffer and 137FPS average at 1080p.

Balanced: The same dominance with DLSS set to Balanced at 1080p, with 191FPS average on the TITAN RTX and 187FPS average on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. At the bottom of the stack of cards we have the GeForce RTX 2060 with just 44FPS average, losing by a gigantic amount to the RTX 2060 SUPER with its 137FPS average. DLSS really shows that 6GB of framebuffer simply isn't enough.

Quality: Performance doesn't change all that much with DLSS set to Quality, with the TITAN RTX and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti both pushing 180FPS and 177FPS, respectively. There's a larger 27FPS difference down to the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, while the GeForce RTX 2060 drops to 41FPS average -- getting smashed by the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and its 125FPS average.
