Nvidia expands DLSS 2 support, but DLSS 3 remains elusive

Nvidia has shared some happy news today — the library of games that support DLSS is about to expand. With updates coming to plenty of new titles, there’ll be more opportunities to try out DLSS for yourself.

Unfortunately, Nvidia’s cutting-edge DLSS 3 tech is still quite elusive. Only six games are confirmed to support DLSS 3 close to the launch of the RTX 4090.

Nvidia’s new flagship, the beastly RTX 4090, is now here, and you can even try to buy it. Alongside the card itself, Nvidia is unveiling its new DLSS 3 technology. It delivers a marked upgrade over the previous version, with the ability to predict entire frames — it’s likely to bring huge performance boosts across the board. Unfortunately, to start with, Nvidia won’t have too many games up its sleeve in order to entice gamers to try out DLSS 3.

The first DLSS 3 game updates are set to arrive within a week, and one is already out. Super People already supports the tech; Justice ‘Fuyun Court’ and Loopmancer will begin supporting it today, followed by Microsoft Flight Simulator on October 17, and A Plague Tale: Requiem on October 18. F1 22 is also said to be updated soon.

That’s a rather modest list of titles to start with. To be fair, the RTX 4090 is an enthusiast-grade card, so it won’t be all that popular, especially not right off the bat — but it would’ve been nice to see a more robust lineup for the start of it. However, Nvidia plans to expand this list, with a total of 35 titles set to adopt the new DLSS 3 already confirmed.

While DLSS 3 is getting a limited amount of love this time around, the lineup of DLSS 2 games expanded more significantly. Thirteen new games are now supporting DLSS 2, or will be soon, and Nvidia shared the full list.

  • Batora: Lost Haven – October 20
  • Blind Fate: Edo no Yami – Out now
  • Broken Pieces – Out now
  • Dakar Desert Rally – Out now
  • Destroy All Humans! 2 – Out now
  • Gotham Knights Out – October 21
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits – Out now
  • PC Building Simulator 2 – October 12
  • Q.U.B.E. 10th Anniversary – Out now
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure – October 27
  • Scathe – Out now
  • SCP: Secret Files – Out now
  • The Last Oricru Launches – October 13

Nvidia will, undoubtedly, try to expand the range of titles that support DLSS 3 over time. For the time being, it’s only the RTX 4090 that can even use it, but when the two RTX 4080s arrive in November, we might see more gamers picking up an RTX 40-series GPU soon enough.

What is ray tracing, and how will it change games?
Ray tracing demonstration in Doom Eternal.

Ray tracing is a lighting technique that brings an extra level of realism to games. It emulates the way light reflects and refracts in the real world, providing a more believable environment than what's typically seen using static lighting in more traditional games. But what is ray tracing, exactly? And more importantly, how does it work? 

A good graphics card can use ray tracing to enhance immersion, but not all GPUs can handle this technique. Read on to decide if ray tracing is essential to your gaming experience and if it justifies spending hundreds on an upgraded GPU.
Virtual photons
To understand just how ray tracing's revolutionary lighting system works, we need to step back and understand how games previously rendered light, as well as what needs to be emulated for a photorealistic experience.

Nvidia DLSS 3: explaining the AI-driven gaming tech
Cyberpunk 2077 running on the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8.

Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) has been a staple of PC gaming for several years now, but DLSS 3 turns the tech on its head. It promises impossibly high frame rates in demanding games like Portal RTX by using AI to generate frames all on its own.

It's a simple concept, but DLSS 3 is complex. We're here to catch you up on what DLSS 3 is, how it works, and what games you'll find it in.

I tested AMD’s RX 7800 XT against Nvidia’s RTX 4070, and there’s a clear winner
AMD logo on the RX 7800 XT graphics card.

With the release of the Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT, AMD finally set foot in the mainstream gaming sector with its RDNA 3 lineup. Nvidia, its biggest rival, which also makes some of the best graphics cards, was the first to release competing cards with similar performance -- at least on paper. But are Nvidia's options better than AMD's in this generation?

The RX 7800 XT was, from the get-go, said to be the competitor to Nvidia's RTX 4070, but in reality, these GPUs differ both in price and performance. We've tested the RX 7800 XT and compared it to the RTX 4070, and we now know which of these two GPUs is the one to pick.
