See what press outlets are saying about Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX:

  • “The first thing you’ll notice is just how fantastic the ray tracing is on PC. Shadows are softer and more accurate. With ray tracing turned off you see hard shadow edges, and with it enabled it’s more like you’d seen in the real world with blurred, soft, and reactive edges. Beyond realtime lighting, ray traced shadows are some of the most subtle but immersion-raising advances we’ve seen recently… it simply looks magnificent.” -- Gaming Trend
  • "Once again Nvidia's technology works wonders to sublimate the effects of light reflection and refraction. Then, the DLSS 2.0 comes to save your frame rate to allow you to enjoy the famous RTX without loss of fluidity, better, with a significant gain of fps.” -- Gameblog
  • “DLSS practically does magic” -- Select Game
  • “Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War runs twice as fast with NVIDIA’s DLSS” -- Tech Radar
  • “It proves that DLSS should be implemented in every single PC game.” -- MMORPG
  • “NVIDIA DLSS in COD: Black Ops Cold War boosts 4K perf by insane 85%” -- TweakTown
  • “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War produced much more than a few measly frames, with DLSS pushing performance by up to 85 per cent at 4K resolution. In addition to the standard power gains you'd expect from Nvidia's hardware, the company's Reflex tech improved system latency by 20 per cent, which is sure to come in handy in multiplayer scenarios.” -- Altchar
  • “DLSS 2.0 also brings a noticeable performance improvement… In our opinion, more and more games should be using Ray Tracing for Ambient Occlusion and local shadows. In modern-day games, there are a lot of scenes in which there isn’t any direct light. As such, these scenes can look really flat, especially when devs haven’t applied proper AO effects. In these situations, ray-traced Ambient Occlusion can noticeably improve graphics.” -- DSOGaming
  • “With the combination of NVIDIA Reflex, G-Sync and overall good hardware, you achieve low latency which just feels good” -- GustafGabel
  • “By far the most immersive game in the franchise thanks to NVIDIA ray tracing and DLSS!” -- French Hardware
