THE FINALS Is Available Now With DLSS 3, DLAA, Reflex & Ray Tracing

Embark Studios’ THE FINALS is a free-to-play shooter set in a highly destructive world, making each match unique. Players form teams of three and enter tournaments that see the lowest-ranked teams dropped, concluding with a one-on-one grand finale for the title of champion. The goal is to collect, carry, and bank boxes of cash - the team with the most cash at the end of the round wins. But team wipes and steals see the pendulum of success swing widely from moment to moment, putting contestants on the edges of their seats each and every match.


THE FINALS was recently shadow dropped on Steam in a surprise announcement, giving gamers instant access to environments that can be blown apart by explosives and an arsenal of weapons. As buildings are blown open, and walls come crashing down, the world’s lighting needs to react realistically as light is occluded or disoccluded. To make this a reality, NVIDIA RTX Global Illumination (RTXGI) is used to accurately calculate and update light and shadow in real-time on all platforms.

With a GeForce RTX GPU in your PC or laptop, RTXGI can leverage hardware-accelerated ray tracing to produce richer and more realistic global illumination effects. When enabled, you’ll experience light realistically bouncing around the environment, reacting to destruction, and interacting with volumetric fog and smoke. And light and shadow will look even better.

At 4K, DLSS 3 multiplies performance by 2X on average, when ray tracing and every other setting is maxed out, enabling smooth 100+ FPS gameplay on the GeForce RTX 4070 and up, and frame rates of up to 226 FPS on the GeForce RTX 4090, giving you the definitive experience in THE FINALS.

At 2560x1440, performance is boosted by 1.6X on average, enabling all GeForce RTX 40 Series desktop gamers to play THE FINALS at over 100 FPS with max settings:

At 1920x1080, a 1.6X average improvement enables flawless every GeForce RTX 40 Series gamer to play at over 144 FPS, with frame rates hitting an incredible 300-plus on the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090:

If your performance in THE FINALS is high enough already, you can instead enable NVIDIA DLAA, an AI-based anti-aliasing mode that utilizes the same technology developed for DLSS. DLAA uses a native resolution image to maximize image quality, rather than boosting performance, for an even richer, more detailed experience.

And to make gameplay even more responsive in THE FINALS, all GeForce gamers with GPUs dating back to the GTX 900 Series can enable NVIDIA Reflex, which reduces system latency by up to 57%.

With Reflex, DLSS, and hardware-accelerated ray tracing, GeForce RTX gamers will receive the definitive experience in THE FINALS. See for yourself in our new frag video, leveraging all three technologies to deliver the best gameplay possible:


Download THE FINALS on Steam, and install our new Game Ready Driver to further optimize gameplay.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 1 Now Available - Warzone Adds DLSS 3

On December 6th, Season 1 for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® III and Call of Duty®: Warzone™ went live. Tons of new in-game content was introduced, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Warzone lobbies added full ray tracing to enhance the appearance of your loadout, characters and vehicles, and Call of Duty: Warzone added support for DLSS 3, following its addition to all other modes and campaigns.


For GeForce RTX gamers, Season 1 sees the debut of NVIDIA DLSS 3 in Call of Duty: Warzone. Multiply performance with DLSS 3, enabling many GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers to exceed 120 FPS with max settings activated at 4K:

GeForce RTX 20 Series and 30 Series gamers can boost performance with DLSS Super Resolution. And if performance is high enough already in your opinion, you can instead enable NVIDIA DLAA, an AI-based anti-aliasing mode that utilizes the same technology developed for DLSS. DLAA uses a native resolution image to maximize image quality, rather than boosting performance, for an even richer, more detailed experience.

Additionally, all GeForce gamers, dating back to users of the GeForce GTX 900 Series, can activate NVIDIA Reflex for the lowest latency.

NVIDIA Reflex is synonymous with responsive gaming, and can be found in the latest and greatest games.  Reflex reduces system latency so your actions occur quicker, potentially giving you a competitive edge in multiplayer matches, and making single-player titles more responsive and enjoyable. NVIDIA Reflex is now used by over 50 million players each month, is available in 9 of the top 10 competitive shooters, and is activated by 90% of GeForce gamers in over 90 supported titles.

In Call of Duty: Warzone, NVIDIA Reflex reduces system latency by up to 28%, and combined with the super fast frame rates delivered by DLSS, you can let your skill shine when competing on the battlefields of Urzikstan, Ashika Island and Vondel.

Call of Duty: HQ serves as the hub for all Modern Warfare III content, enabling players to quickly access Multiplayer, Zombies, and the Firing Range. With the launch of Season 1, GeForce RTX gamers can now also activate pre-game full ray tracing, also known as path tracing, in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Call of Duty: Warzone’s lobbies, enabling you to see your characters, skins, vehicles, and weapons in an entirely new light.

Full Ray Tracing is a demanding but highly accurate way to render light and its effect on a scene. Reflections, shadows, ambient occlusion, and more are all amped up, letting your Call of Duty content shine with incredible detail and realism. Inspect your Gunsmith weapons with incredible detail, see your characters with pixel-perfect lighting and shadowing, head to the Firing Range to test your beautifully rendered loadouts, and marvel at immersive pre-game moments with you and your assembled squad.

All GeForce RTX gamers can activate Full Ray Tracing via the Video options menu, and doing so will automatically enable NVIDIA DLSS 3.5 with DLSS Ray Reconstruction. Ray Reconstruction replaces hand-tuned ray tracing denoisers with a new unified AI model, elevating the image quality of ray-traced effects and full ray tracing to new heights, further enhancing detail, realism and immersion.

For even faster performance, in Call of Duty lobbies and all available campaigns and modes for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, and Call of Duty: Warzone, activate DLSS Frame Generation, which multiplies frame rates.

Additionally, GeForce RTX 40 Series path tracing performance gets even faster thanks to Activision’s use of Shader Execution Reordering (SER).

Fortnite’s Unreal Engine 5 upgrade brought astonishing new visuals to the world’s most popular Battle Royale.
