Four new titles getting DLSS support this month enabling 4K60 gameplay; Minecraft with RTX now out of beta and comes with DLSS and path tracing
Holidays this year may seem excruciating for new GPU buyers, but those who already rock a decent-enough card stand to experience several new titles releasing this month in their full glory. NVIDIA has now announced that four more games that are set to release this month will get Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support. Today is also the day the popular Minecraft RTX beta is transitioning to an official release.
Four new games launching this month are gaining DLSS support, according to NVIDIA. Enabling DLSS is touted to bring the following benefits in these games:
- Up to 40% performance increase in CRSED: F.O.A.D., which means every GeForce RTX GPU can play the game at 4K in excess of 90 FPS.
- More than double your frame rate in Moonlight Blade, which means every GeForce RTX GPU can play the game at 4K in excess of 60FPS.
- Up to 50% performance increase in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, which means every GeForce RTX GPU can play the game at 4K in excess of 60FPS.
- Up to 40% performance increase in Scavengers, which means every GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU can play the game at 4K in excess of 60FPS.
The other big development is that popular sandbox game Minecraft with RTX is now moving from beta to an official release. Minecraft with RTX uses DLSS and path tracing for all rays in the scene. Select Minecraft worlds also enable a special Physically Based Rendering texture pack that serves to further enhance the scene. The Portal Pioneers RTX world in the game serves as a built-in benchmark.
Players who wish to enter into the mainline branch of Minecraft with RTX will need to first backup their worlds and save games, unenroll the beta version from the Xbox Insider Hub app, and check for updates in the Microsoft Store app.
NVIDIA also said that the much-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 RPG with ray-traced shadows, global illumination, reflections, and DLSS support is best experienced on an GeForce RTX-powered PC. We look forward to testing the game ourselves to see how the game fares on current gen hardware.
