NVIDIA's DLSS 2.0 details: Better graphics made easier with AI

Powered by RTX Tensor Cores, DLSS 2.0 is a new and improved deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates while generating lovely, sharp images for games. While the feature wasn't used as well in its first iteration, NVIDIA is now confident that they have successfully fixed all the issues it had before. Nvidia claims that DLSS 2.0 uses a new AI model that runs twice as fast as the model of the original DLSS, which is a rather significant performance boost. This is achieved using the Tensor Cores in the RTX GPU to execute AI models at high speed and then working in tandem with the DLSS neural network the games are able to produce high-quality models from much lower-quality images. This in result, eases off some pressure on the graphics card and helps in providing better frame rates in the games. If running a game at 4K, selecting the Quality setting would run at that resolution. DLSS 2.0 offers image quality on a par with its original resolution while only rendering a quarter or half of the amount of pixels. Nvidia also promises improved image quality thanks to new temporal feedback techniques, offering sharper and more detailed frames. "This improves frame rates and eliminates previous limitations on which GPUs, settings, and resolutions could be enabled", NVIDIA says. Needless to say, DLSS is now a hit or miss feature and game developers remain quite reluctant towards implementing this feature since it has daunting requirements involving the creation of separate neural network models for each game at all supported resolutions.

Moreover, and what's really important in our opinion, DLSS 2.0 trains using non-game-specific content, delivering a generalized network that works across games. This means more user choice, and even bigger performance boosts. In testing DLSS 2.0 via Wolfenstein, MechWarrior 5, and an early look at Control's update - we were blown away by its ability to take a 1080p image and present it in 4K, without any noticeable loss in quality.

Nvidia DLSS 2.0 is now here, and in a way, even has been since CES 2020. Deliver Us The Moon, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries are all DLSS 2.0 enabled now and Control will receive a patch on Thursday to enable DLSS 2.0.

According to the Nvidia announcement, the technology update will be present on GeForce RTX graphics cards, such as RTX 2060, RTX 2080 and Super options, for example. More than 30 major games have been released or announced with ray tracing or NVIDIA DLSS powered by NVIDIA RTX. This game was used to show that some finer detail is better rendered using DLSS 2.0 than is visible using native rendering-check out the fencing on top of the installation in the image below. This process is repeated tens of thousands of times on the supercomputer until the network reliably outputs high quality, high resolution images.
