Nvidia promises 40% Performance Boost in Anthem through DLSS

Anthem's March 26th update will bring support for Nvidia DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) and Nvidia Highlights to the game alongside a wide range of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks. 

Using DLSS, Nvidia claims that users of RTX series graphics cards will be able to gain up to a 40% performance boost in Anthem, which will enable players to use higher game settings or access more stable performance levels. 

Sadly, DLSS is limited to specific resolutions, being supported at 4K on all Geforce RTX series graphics cards and 1440p is available on RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 series GPUs. Yes, the RTX 2080 Ti will not support DLSS at 1440p, and no RTX series graphics cards will support DLSS at 1080p in Anthem.  

Nvidia's DLSS technology uses a Deep Learning Algorithm and the RTX Turing architecture's Tensor cores to upscale lower resolution images to create a higher resolution image output. This is what allows DLSS to offer a performance boost, though the quality of the final image will be different than a native resolution rendering, due to the enhanced reconstructed nature of DLSS enhanced images. 


Below are some benchmark numbers from Nvidia which showcases the performance boost offered by DLSS. Sadly Nvidia did not specify the area of the game that they tested and failed to list the minimum or percentile framerate data of their benchmark runs.  

We plan to analyse Bioware's use of DLSS within Anthem, both in terms of raw performance and in terms of image quality. Users of Nvidia RTX series graphics card should update to the company's Geforce 419.67 Game Ready Driver, or newer.

What!!! I can't use DLSS on my 2080ti / 1440p monitor setup.....Quote

I guess you could force the output to 4K and then let it downsample naturally? Must be settings in NVidia control panel to force that(Or I guess in most modern games if you just add the resolution option for your monitor)? Though not sure how worthwhile that would be image quality or performance wise.Quote

Dont think so in the gui. But for those experienced with Nvinspector, im sure there are parameters there to configure this.Quote

Getting a bit fed up with Ray Tracing and DLSS as they offer very little compared to the extra cost involved with the cards.

Ray Tracing does not offer a game changing experience and is often hardly noticed.

DLSS offers higher fps but the same can be achieved more or less by turning other settings down.

In light of the above would I still have bought my RTX cards, of course I would as they are about 30% faster than Pascal.

Having said that in life there are priorities far more important than gaming and those are what most people would rather spend their money on.


Turing architecture -
Fast cards.
Gimmicky features like RTX and DLSS.
Very overpriced and terrible value.

NVidia please don't release another crap architecture like Turing again.

Even if NVidia had released a cut down Volta architecture for gaming it would have been both faster and cheaper than Turing, what a joke.Quote

They offer very little now because its new software. Give it time and it'll improve.
Ai isn't going anyway, it'll only get better. But it sure as hell better not get more expensive but being as greedy as Nvidia is, it will probably get more expensive.Quote
