Nvidia is going to release a new display driver today that adds DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) support to 28 games and is now certified for both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
These 28 additional DLSS games bring the total of games to more than 100, an important milestone for Nvidia’s AI-based temporal upscaling.
If you didn’t already know, DLSS upscales your games from a lower resolution to provide smoother frame rates without a noticeable compromise in image quality.
A new era of gaming is dawning
Most of the new DLSS additions come as a courtesy of the Unreal Engine 4 DLSS plugin that’s making it easier for developers to integrate his feature into their games.
True fans will really appreciate that Alan Wake Remastered will ship with DLSS support next month, and Nvidia is promising an up to 2X performance boost at 4K.
As a matter of fact, every GeForce RTX GPU can get over 60fps at max settings in 4K with Deep Learning Super Sampling enabled, which means cards like the RTX 2080 Ti jump from an average of 70fps to 120fps.
Another long-expected title, Industria, coming out on September 30th, will also include DLSS support, alongside support for a new Nvidia DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing) AI-based anti-aliasing mode on Elder Scrolls Online test servers.
DLAA was actually designed for users who have spare GPU headroom and want higher levels of image quality, according to Nvidia.
Throughout NVIDIA’s history, we’ve supported every new Windows operating system at release with dedicated drivers, ensuring our customers receive optimized performance and access to the latest Windows features. Today, we have released our Game Ready and NVIDIA Studio drivers for Windows 11’s October 5th official release, having supported Windows 11 preview builds with WHQL-certified drivers since June.
Creators and workers receive new ways to organize and manage their desktops using snap tools, enhanced multi-monitor functionality, and advanced support for touch screens, voice controls, and pen-input devices.
Just to give you a basic understanding of it, it works similarly to DLSS, but instead of boosting performance, it boosts image quality instead.
This latest Nvidia driver also includes Windows 11 support, with optimizations for Alan Wake Remastered, Deathloop, Diablo II: Resurrected, Far Cry 6, Hot Wheels Unleashed, Industria, New World, and World War Z: Aftermath.
If you wish to download Nvidia’s latest driver (472.12) for both Windows 10 and Windows 11, head on over to the official website or use driver updating software that will scan your PC and replace missing or outdated drivers.
This is excellent news for every self-respecting gamer that was still hoping that Microsoft’s upcoming OS wouldn’t bury gaming totally.
If you remember, right after Windows 11 was announced, Redmond officials said that it will be the future of PC gaming.
Afterward, experts decided that this new operating system might not be the perfect environment to play games on, due to its lack of efficiency.
But we are pretty much sure that everyone involved will pitch in and make Windows 11 a gamers haven, even if many of you aren’t quite ready to give up Windows 10 yet. Only time will tell.
