Nioh 2 and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord get DLSS help


The variety of video games that help Nvidia’s performance-boosting DLSS tech has grown by two right this moment, with Nioh 2 – The Full Version and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord each becoming a member of the DLSS video games fold. Bannerlord’s DLSS help had been beforehand introduced by Nvidia earlier within the yr, however Nioh 2 is a welcome shock, particularly after the varied tech woes it suffered at launch. Certainly, Nvidia claims that each one RTX house owners ought to now be capable to get 4K 60fps efficiency in each video games with DLSS enabled, boosting body charges by round 50% throughout the board.

Whereas I’ve but to check out every sport’s new DLSS help myself, Nvidia have launched two movies exhibiting it off in-game, in addition to the sort of body price enhance you may anticipate to see throughout a few graphics playing cards. You’ll be able to have a gander at them beneath.

Admittedly, the Nioh 2 video is not fairly as spectacular because the Mount & Blade II one beneath, as for some purpose Nvidia selected to indicate off what’s potential on an RTX 3070, which, as you may see, can just about run the sport at 60fps on max settings anyway. Certain, a near-30fps enhance as much as a median of 90fps is swell and all that, however seeing an RTX 2060’s efficiency get reworked from a juddering 40fps as much as a easy 60fps just like the Bannerlord video beneath is (to me at the least) rather more visually spectacular, and a greater demonstration of what DLSS can do at demanding resolutions.

Certainly, DLSS ought to be capable to flip all RTX playing cards into 4K 60fps machines with DLSS enabled on max settings in every sport, in accordance with Nvidia’s efficiency figures, whereas newer RTX 30 playing cards ought to all be capable to hit at the least 90fps. That is excellent news for these of you who’ve truly managed to safe one in all Nvidia’s just lately launched RTX 30 GPUs, though sadly the figures solely prolong to the RTX 3060 Ti, so it is not but clear how the upcoming RTX 3060 (which launches on February 25th, that is this Thursday) will fare by comparability.

Nonetheless, I am all for extra video games getting DLSS help, particularly if it implies that lower-end playing cards can begin punching above their regular weight. We should always hopefully begin seeing help turn out to be extra widespread, too, as simply final week Nvidia introduced a free DLSS plug-in for Unreal Engine 4. AMD are additionally engaged on a rival piece of expertise to counter Nvidia’s proprietary DLSS tech, known as FidelityFX Tremendous Decision for his or her RX 6000 GPUs, however there’s nonetheless no phrase on when it is getting launched or what number of video games will help it at launch.
