Nvidia’s proprietary AI upscaling technique, Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), has made its RTX 2000 and 3000 series products some of the best graphics cards available to buy, provided you can find one. In a recent livestream, Elder Scrolls Online creative director, Rich Lambert, revealed that not only would the MMO soon benefit from DLSS but would also serve as the debut title for Nvidia’s new Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing (DLAA).
Nvidia DLSS is viewed as something of a gold standard for image upscaling solutions, despite competition from AMD with its open source FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) while Intel’s upcoming XeSS still needs thorough testing. DLSS uses AI to reconstruct images from a lower resolution, allowing games to render at higher resolutions with higher levels of performance than would otherwise be possible with native rendering.
Elder Scrolls Online joins the growing number of games to support DLSS but will be the first game to support DLAA. Alex Tardif, lead graphics engineer at ZeniMax Online Studios, took to Twitter to give an overview of how DLAA works and the benefit it offers players.
