The world’s top gaming GPU maker NVIDIA made waves last month at the Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany when it pulled back the curtains on its next-generation line of graphics cards, dubbed GeForce RTX. Packed with huge chips, new GDDR6 memory, and capable of offering real-time ray tracing acceleration via the DirectX Ray Tracing API (DXR), these new GPUs have lots to offer PC gamers, despite their insanely high initial pricing. One of the new technologies shown at the reveal was Deep Learning Super Sampling, or DLSS.

By leveraging the power of AI, the new NVIDIA RTX GPUs can upscale frames to offer comparable image quality to natively rendered scenes, without the performance cost associated with native rendering. In the simplest terms, DLSS can give you native 4K image quality while offering the performance of 1440p rendering. NVIDIA has announced nine new games that will offer support for DLSS, joining the existing group of sixteen.

The list of games (first reported by OC3D) with DLSS support is as follows:

  • Ark: Survival Evolved
  • Atomic Heart
  • Darksiders III - Newly added
  • Dauntless
  • Deliver Us The Moon: Fortuna - Newly Added
  • Fear The Wolves - Newly Added
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Fractured Lands
  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - Newly added
  • Hitman 2
  • Islands of Nyne
  • Justice
  • JX3
  • KINETIK - Newly added
  • Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries
  • Outpost Zero - Newly Added
  • Overkill's The Walking Dead - Newly Added
  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  • Remnant: From the Ashes
  • SCUM - Newly Added
  • Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Stormdivers - Newly Added
  • The Forge Arena
  • We Happy Few

Independent of DLSS, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX GPUs will also offer acceleration for real-time ray traced effects in games. The current list of titles that will make use of RTX effects is as follows:

  • Assetto Corsa Competizione
  • Atomic Heart
  • Battlefield V
  • Control
  • Enlisted
  • Justice
  • JX3
  • MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
  • Metro Exodus
  • ProjectDH
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider

While there is no official word on when the embargo for GeForce RTX cards is to be lifted, the rumor mill is reporting that we can expect reviews and benchmarks about a week from now.
