NVIDIA DLSS 3 Games Start Shipping This Week, More Coming This Month

Our new GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards are beyond fast, giving gamers our highest ever gen-to-gen frame rate boost. This quantum leap in performance comes courtesy of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture’s many innovations, and NVIDIA DLSS 3, which accelerates performance by up to 4X. With a GeForce RTX 4090 or GeForce RTX 4080 in your system, games will run at unbelievable frame rates, and you’ll have the power to experience richer, more immersive fully ray-traced games at 4K.

DLSS 3 is a set of three complementary technologies: Super Resolution, Frame Generation, and NVIDIA Reflex, which combine to deliver great frame rates, latency, and image quality.

If a game already has DLSS 2 Super Resolution, upgrading to DLSS 3 is a simple process and will make both Super Resolution and Frame Generation available. DLSS 3 leverages the same integration points as DLSS 2 (color buffer, depth buffer, engine motion vectors, and output buffers), making upgrades from these existing SDKs easy via our new NVIDIA DLSS 3 Streamline plugin.

DLSS 3 is also coming to the world’s most popular game engines, including Unity, Unreal Engine, and Frostbite Engine, making it simple for games based on these engines to flip DLSS 3 on.


Over 35 DLSS 3 games and apps have already been announced, with the first 3 DLSS 3 games shipping this week, and more coming this month. If you own a previous-generation GeForce RTX graphics card or laptop, you can use DLSS 2 Super Resolution in each DLSS 3 game. DLSS Super Resolution is our new name for the award-winning, AI-powered DLSS 2 tech that has to date accelerated performance in over 216 games and apps, and is now part of DLSS 3.

In addition to the exciting new DLSS 3 integrations, over a dozen new games have added DLSS 2, also known as DLSS Super Resolution, giving all GeForce RTX gamers a big bump in performance this October. With plugins and Software Development Kits (SDKs) available for all major game engines, adding DLSS to a title is quick and easy, allowing developers big and small to give millions of GeForce RTX gamers the definitive experience when playing on PC.

Read on to learn about the latest implementations of NVIDIA DLSS, and the latest games to leverage GeForce RTX’s RT Cores that accelerate ray tracing workloads to otherwise unobtainable frame rates.

NVIDIA DLSS 3 Multiplies Frame Rates

NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) is a groundbreaking revolution in AI-powered graphics, increasing performance on GeForce RTX GPUs using dedicated Tensor Cores, while generating beautiful, sharp images.

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, accelerating performance to previously unimaginable degrees.


In GPU-limited games, DLSS Super Resolution technology can increase your frame rates by up to 2X. With DLSS 3, we can boost them by up to 4X (compared to brute-force rendering) in fully ray-traced worlds like those seen in the incredible Portal with RTX.

Certain games make extensive use of the CPU, limiting the benefit of faster graphics cards and DLSS Super Resolution. 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.

Microsoft Flight Simulator’s Performance Takes Off With NVIDIA DLSS 3

Microsoft Flight Simulator is a stunning, critically-acclaimed flight simulator that marries realistic recreations of popular planes with an accurate map of our planet, and regular free updates add immersive hand-crafted detail to the world’s most visited cities, airports and regions.

The 1:1 real-world recreation of our planet in Microsoft Flight Simulator challenges even the most powerful PCs. To help, Asobo Studio and Microsoft have brought NVIDIA DLSS 3 to the game. 


“Creating a lifelike digital twin of our entire planet is incredibly CPU intensive. DLSS 3 is a GPU technology that tackles the performance limitations of the CPU, making it the perfect way to experience Microsoft Flight Simulator.” - Jorg Neumann, Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator, Xbox Game Studios

DLSS Super Resolution is effective in boosting performance in GPU bound cases by rendering fewer pixels. However, Microsoft Flight Simulator can be CPU bound even on the highest-end CPUs. In this case, DLSS 3’s Optical Multi Frame Generation is able to alleviate CPU bottlenecks and boost FPS by up to 2X by creating entirely new frames that never touch the CPU.

Microsoft Flight Simulator’s major updates are publicly tested to ensure maximum performance and stability when they launch to the game’s many players. The next update arrives November 11th with DLSS 3 included, but ahead of then you can download and test a DLSS 3-enhanced beta.

To participate in the test on a Microsoft Store or PC Game Pass copy of the game:

  1. Download the “Xbox Insider Hub” app from the Microsoft Store
  2. Sign-in with the account you use to play Microsoft Flight Simulator
  3. Click on “Previews” in the left nav
  4. Click on “Microsoft Flight Simulator Beta” in the list of available Previews
  5. Click “Join” on the new screen

If you would like to leave the pre-release test before it ends and re-install the live build, follow these instructions:

  1. Open the“Xbox Insider Hub” app.
  2. Navigate to “Previews” > Microsoft Flight Simulator Beta
  3. Select “Manage”
  4. On the left side, select “Leave preview”
  5. Wait for the unenrollment to complete, restart your PC, then launch the game

If you’re playing Microsoft Flight Simulator on Steam:

  1. Open your Steam Library
  2. Right-click Microsoft Flight Simulator
  3. Click “Properties”
  4. Click “Betas”
  5. Select “flight_sim_beta – Sim Update 11”

To exit the pre-release test before it ends and revert back to the live build, follow steps 1-4, and on step 5 select “None” in the dropdown.

Once your game is updated, NVIDIA DLSS 3 will be available to use in-game, increasing your performance by up to 2X. If you prefer to wait for the official release of DLSS 3, that’s arriving on November 11th alongside the launch of Microsoft Flight Simulator Sim Update 11 and the game’s new, much-anticipated 40th Anniversary content. Stay tuned to the Microsoft Flight Simulator website for further info and updates.
