NVIDIA’s Deep Studying Supersampling (DLSS) is a know-how native to RTX playing cards which, by way of the facility of onboard AI, can intelligently enhance the decision of rendered frames in video games. DLSS is definitely now accessible for VR, and we’re simply beginning to see extra video games assist the performance-boosting tech—particularly, the Stalker-inspired survival shooter Into the Radius VR (2020).
DLSS is a function accessible on RTX 20/30-series GPUs, however have to be included by particular person builders. Now about six months after the discharge of the DLSS 2.1 replace, which included assist for VR headsets, builders CM Video games took a step as one of many first to incorporate assist for the know-how.
Granted, Into The Radius isn’t absolutely the first VR sport (or somewhat, VR-supported sport) to undertake DLSS. Solely two months after DLSS 2.1 launched with VR assist, battle simulator Battle Thunder (2013) introduced it had enabled DLSS as properly, nonetheless customers discovered blended outcomes when taking part in the sport in VR.
What does DLSS do precisely? Highway to VR’s Ben Lang describes it greatest in his preliminary reporting on DLSS for VR:
The aim is to attain the identical decision and stage of element as a natively rendered body of the identical decision, and to do the entire thing extra effectively. Doing so means extra graphical processing energy is out there for different issues like higher lighting, textures, or just rising the framerate total.
As an example, a sport with assist for DLSS might render its native body at 1,920 × 1,080 after which use DLSS to up-res the body to three,840 × 2,160. In lots of instances that is sooner and preserves an almost similar stage of element in comparison with natively rendering the body at three,840 × 2,160 within the first place.
For those who’re on the lookout for one thing extra visible, Battle Thunder launched a side-by-side comparability of how the sport appears with DLSS toggled on and off. That is after all a flatscreen comparability, however the fundamental idea is similar.
We’re hoping to see extra PC VR video games assist DLSS, nonetheless the worldwide scarcity of 30-series playing cards, and 20-series playing cards solely offering meager efficiency will increase over the 10-series in conventional rendering instances, might have made it too area of interest for a majority of builders to spend time on.
