- 3DMark Port Royal benchmark updated to test DLSS performance.
- DLSS is said to offer up to 50 performance increase in frame rates.
- Few games support the feature as of now.
Nvidia’s RTX series of GPUs bring some new tricks to the gaming scene, with Ray-Tracing being the one most talked about. However, the downside of having RTX enabled is the hit to the frame rates. In order to offset this reduction in performance, Nvidia had also announced a second new feature called DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling, which utilises the Tensor cores onboard the RTX cards and employs AI to predict the next set of frames. The goal is to increase the overall frame rate, with Nvidia claiming that with DLSS enabled games, users can expect up to twice the performance improvement in terms of frame rates. Popular PC benchmarking suite 3DMark has now updated its Port Royal benchmark to measure DLSS performance today, with Nvidia releasing new drivers that brings improved compatibility to the system.
