DLSS Momentum Continues: 50 Released and Upcoming DLSS 3 Games, Over 250 DLSS Games and Creative Apps Available Now

NVIDIA DLSS uses AI and GeForce RTX Tensor Cores to boost frame rates while maintaining great image quality. In October, we released DLSS 3, adding new Frame Generation technology that enables DLSS performance boosts of up to 4X over native rendering.

DLSS 3 is already available in 17 games, with another 33 games and apps on the way soon. And GeForce RTX users can now enable AI-powered performance boosts of DLSS in over 250 released games and creative apps.

In December, we brought DLSS 3 to Portal with RTX, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and other popular titles. Today, we’re announcing that DLSS 3 will be multiplying performance in Atomic Heart, Dakar Desert Rally, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, The Day Before, Warhaven, Witchfire, and even more anticipated 2023 games. Additionally, there’s a fresh batch of DLSS 2 games coming soon, including Dead Space.

And because NVIDIA DLSS is always learning, an upcoming update will deliver improvements to DLSS Super Resolution, DLAA, and DLSS Frame Generation.


For all the details and brand new #RTXON game trailers, read on.

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.

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 DLSS 3 article, DLSS 3 combines DLSS Super Resolution and DLSS Frame Generation to reconstruct 7/8ths of the displayed pixels, accelerating performance significantly.


In GPU-limited games, DLSS 2 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.

Certain 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.

NVIDIA DLSS is Always Learning, New Improvements Coming Soon

DLSS continues to improve through ongoing training on NVIDIA’s AI Supercomputer, and a new update delivers improvements to DLSS Super Resolution, NVIDIA DLAA, and DLSS Frame Generation. Since DLSS 3 games are backwards compatible with DLSS 2 technology, all GeForce RTX gamers will also benefit. 

Upcoming DLSS improvements include:

  • AI network enhancements for DLSS Frame Generation that better take advantage of game engine data, improving UI stability and image quality during fast movement.
  • An updated AI network for DLSS Super Resolution Ultra Performance mode, improving fine detail stability and overall image quality.
  • An updated AI network for NVIDIA DLAA that improves image quality, reduces ghosting, and improves edge smoothness in high contrast scenarios.

Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Portal with RTX will be the first to update with these new features in upcoming game patches.

Let’s take a look at a few examples below.

The Day Before Launching With DLSS 3 & Ray Tracing

FNTASTIC and MyTona’s The Day Before is an open-world, massively multiplayer, survival, PvPvE action game set in a post-pandemic America overrun with flesh-hungry zombies, and treacherous humans killing one another for food, weapons, vehicles, and generally anything they can get their hands on.
