Call of Duty: Warzone along with the Modern Warfare campaign and Black Ops Cold War Zombies are finally receiving Nvidia DLSS support. The new 25.2 GB Warzone Season 3 update also fixes quite a few bugs, introduces new events and unlockable weapons, plus balances for existing weapons. Thanks to the DLSS implementation, owners of RTX 2000 and RTX 3000 cards should see up to 70% increased fps in all resolutions.
However, if we look on the charts provided by Nvidia itself, those 70% boosts are only noticeable in 4K. That is because Nvidia used different DLSS presets depending on resolution. For 4K, Nvidia chose Performance Mode DLLS, while 1440p and 1080p benefited from Quality mode. The test system included an i9-10900K processor with 32 GB of RAM and the video settings were set to Max. For those gamers looking to take advantage of their high refresh rate screens, all the new RTX 3000 cards appear to push more than 130 fps in 1080p, while in 1440p only RTX 3060 Ti cards and above can deliver more than 130 fps. 4K is already too much for the lower and upper mid-range cards, since only the RTX 3080 / 3090 cards can offer 130+ fps.
Apart from boosting the fps count, DLSS most of the time can process a sharper image compared to the native resolution. However, Videocardz notes that the CoD: Warzone DLSS implementation still needs some work, as some users are reporting visible artifacts and ghosting.
