KEY POINTS

  • The driver provides DLSS support for additional game titles
  • NVIDIA now has a total of 100 games with DLSS support
  • NVIDIA’s DLSS support can double the supported title’s frame rate

NVIDIA has just unveiled a DLSS Game Ready display driver that comes certified for both Windows 10 and Windows 11.

In a blog post published on Sept. 20 via the NVIDIA GeForce site, the chipmaker announced its latest GeForce Game Ready display driver that provides Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). The announcement comes with a list of titles that will receive support.

The driver comes certified for Windows 10 and will be the first driver to come officially certified for Windows 11. Although users are now testing the Windows 11 compatibility with their drivers, the Game Ready display driver provides assurance of the latest OS and DLSS compatible games compatibility, The Verge reported.

Microsoft will officially launch Windows 11 for the public on Oct. 5. The major operating system is currently on the beta test for Developers.

The display driver provides DLSS support for 28 games. DLSS helps gamers enjoy better frame rates at retained image quality by upgrading the game resolutions from their original lower rate. It makes games more enjoyable with improved performance and an increasing variety of compatible cards.

DLSS works by reducing the stress placed on the GPU by rendering the game at a lower resolution. Using Artificial Intelligence, the DLSS then rebuilds the image back to the game’s native resolution at the gamer’s choice.

However, DLSS needs an RTX graphic card in order to run unlike anti-aliasing such as the FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) by AMD. It is also not supported by every game.

With the release of the Game Ready display driver with support to an additional 28 games, NVIDIA now has a total of 100 games with DLSS support. Alan Wake Remastered, Industria, and Severed Steel are among the 28 games that received the DLSS support.

In an internal testing figure, NVIDIA showed how the DLSS doubled the frame rates on Alan Wake Remastered supported GPUs. A 70fps rate went up to 120fps at 4K.

GameSpot reports that the Game Ready display driver release ensures the owners of compatible GPUs of extended life for their hardware. This is good news as GPU purchasing has become a challenge these days due to the ongoing shortage in chips supply.
