Diablo IV Server Slam: Play For Free With DLSS 3 On May 12th

Each week we’re bringing you the latest news on games launching with NVIDIA DLSS. Last week, Redfall launched with support for NVIDIA DLSS 3 and NVIDIA Reflex, and this week Diablo IV’s DLSS 3-enhanced Server Slam Beta begins!

Additionally, Fobia - St. Dinfna Hotel, No One Survived, and Someday You'll Return: Director's Cut are adding support for DLSS 2 via game updates, giving GeForce RTX gamers the fastest frame rates possible.

For all the details, read on.

NVIDIA DLSS 3 Multiplies Frame Rates

Powered by new hardware capabilities of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, DLSS 3 generates entirely new high quality frames, rather than just pixels.

Through a process detailed in full in our NVIDIA DLSS 3 article, DLSS 3 combines DLSS Super Resolution technology and DLSS Frame Generation to reconstruct 7/8ths of the displayed pixels, multiplying performance.


In GPU-limited games, DLSS 2 Super Resolution technology can increase your frame rates by up to 2X. With DLSS 3, we can increase performance even further with new frames - in the technology preview of Cyberpunk 2077’s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode, 4K performance on a GeForce RTX 4090 is boosted by 4.6X.

Other games make extensive use of the CPU, which can limit performance. DLSS 3 operates on the GPU, bypassing CPU bottlenecks and boosting frame rates. In Microsoft Flight Simulator, for example, DLSS 3 boosts frame rates by up to 2X.

DLSS 3 games are backwards compatible with DLSS 2 technology - developers simply integrate DLSS 3, and DLSS 2, also known as DLSS Super Resolution, is supported by default. Additionally, integrations of DLSS 3 also include NVIDIA Reflex, reducing system latency for all GeForce RTX users, making games more responsive.

Diablo IV Server Slam Begins May 12th With DLSS 3

The demon Lilith and the angel Inarius united to create the world of Sanctuary in their desire to escape the Eternal Conflict between High Heavens and Burning Hells. But now, decades after the events of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, they are bitter enemies who have resorted to war against each other with their respective followers. The lands of Sanctuary have become plagued with ceaseless demons, and only the most steadfast of heroes will be able to hold in the face of darkness.

Following the successful DLSS 2-enhanced Open Beta, Blizzard invites you to stress test their servers in the Diablo IV Server Slam, occurring May 12th to 14th. Players will have one more chance to earn special cosmetic rewards, including the Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic and a new Mount Trophy.

On the tech side, the Server Slam introduces support for NVIDIA DLSS 3, enabling GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers to smash the forces of evil at the absolute highest frame rates. 

Diablo IV officially launches June 6th. And if that weren’t enough, players can raise hell with ray tracing in Diablo IV when it becomes available post launch. Stay tuned to GeForce.com for further details.
