Nvidia’s RTX 4090 GPU has just hit shelves, and Team Green has let us know which games will initially support the new version of their frame rate boosting technology, DLSS 3.
As observed in a blog post (opens in new tab) from Nvidia (highlighted by VideoCardz (opens in new tab)), the games that will be using DLSS 3 right away are Super People (an early access battle royale on Steam), Loopmancer, and Justice: Fuyun Court.
So nothing really exciting there, but there are some bigger names about to get the DLSS 3 treatment soon, and that includes Microsoft Flight Simulator, for which the tech arrives on October 17th.
There’s also A Plague Tale: Requiem, which gets DLSS 3 the next day, October 18, and then F1 2022 – which has no set date, but Nvidia says the update is coming “soon” (presumably later this month). ).
Still on the topic of the frame rate boost feature, there are also several games that are getting new DLSS 2 support (remember, DLSS 3 is for RTX 4000 graphics cards only). Here’s their full list, which includes Gotham Knights (when it arrives October 21):
- Dakar Desert Rally
- Kena: Bridge of Spirits
- Blind Fate: Edo no Yami
- broken pieces
- Destroy all humans! two
- QUBE’s 10th Anniversary
- SCP: Secret Files
- PC build simulator 2
- The Last Oricru (released October 13)
- Batora: Lost Haven (released October 20)
- Gotham Knights (released October 21)
- Sackboy: A Big Adventure (released October 27)
Analysis: Slim on the ground so far…
Not many games support DLSS 3, of course. It looks like there may only be six titles this month in total, assuming support for F1 22 is coming in late October.
There’s a lot more in the pipeline, mind you, and Nvidia has informed us that there are 35 games and apps that are getting DLSS 3 support in the future, with more to come, no doubt. Cyberpunk 2077 is a high profile game that’s set to support DLSS 3, but there’s no mention of it anytime soon in this blog post, so we might have to wait a bit for that just yet (although it’s already been seen in pre-tests). visualization, of course).
As Nvidia also reminded us, while DLSS 3 is exclusive to RTX 4000 series GPUs, any game that receives support will have backwards compatibility with DLSS 2, so RTX 3000 or 2000 GPUs will still have this benefit. DLSS 3 also brings Nvidia Reflex support, for lower system lag and more responsive gaming, which is really useful for competitive shooters.
