Nvidia Launches Geforce 418.91 Drivers for Metro Exodus and Battlefield V with DLSS

This week is a big one in the world of PC gaming, with Friday, February 15th marking the release of Metro Exodus, Crackdown 3, Far Cry: New Dawn and Anthem's Early Access. All of which are big releases in their own right. 
 
To prepare for these new game releases, Nvidia has launched their new Geforce 418.91 WHQL driver for Metro Exodus and Battlefield V, which ship complete with optimisations for Nvidia's RTX Raytracing and DLSS. With DLSS, Nvidia promises up to 40% more performance in Battlefield V and calls their driver a "must-have" for Anthem Early Access, Far Cry: New Dawn and Crackdown 3. 

Today, we have released our Early Access Performance Review for Metro Exodus, which includes some testing with Nvidia's DLSS tech and RTX technology, albeit with their older 417.71 driver.

Well I certainly didn't expect DLSS to look much blurrier than TAA.... Boy was I wrong, DLSS looks much worse. Failed technology (at this point at least).Quote

I do wonder though if its just metro we see it. Or has it been confirmed as the same problem in BFV?

edit* Johnny Guru confirmed in his updated review of DLSS in BFV that is is blurry there too.Quote

Such a shame as it was one of the reasons I was most excited about owning a 2080 card.

Luckily I updated for the extra grunt too so not all is lost but still a bit of a disappointment given how good the FF XV benchmark seemed to lookQuote

DLSS is no joke. I'm running BFV at 1440 on Ultra, DXR on low. Beforehand I'd get about 50-60fps, now I'm 90+

Doesn't look noticeably different when playing.

It's the very first public implementation in a game too so it'll get better as driver support improves I think.Quote
