With the release of the Deadlands expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online this month comes another benefit for PC players. The previously announced Nvidia DLAA technology for AI-based anti-aliasing, debuted with Deadlands, and joins the DLSS technology as options to improve your experience.
The DLAA tech, Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing, was originally announced on the Elder Scrolls Online Twitch stream about the expansion and went into testing on the PTS after that announcement. ESO is the first game that’s running this new tech. What it does is, if you’re running a capable Nvidia GPU, it will enable better anti-aliasing at native resolution so things will look better and not hinder the resolution when it’s loading up everything around you. If you are currently adventuring in the fires of Oblivion, the tech available should help the hellfire and creatures alike look better and in a more stable way.
The Nvidia DLSS tech is a separate option that improves overall performance and boosts frame rates up to 50%. What if your frame rates are stable? The new tech is all about making the game look better, so if you're mostly looking for improvements in how the game looks, the DLAA is what you should look into. You can use both if your system is up to it, and the AI-based anti-aliasing tech is actually built on the DLSS framework technology.
While the DLSS tech has been out for a while and is available in many games including DOOM Eternal, Cyberpunk 2077, Baldur's Gate 3, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and more, the DLAA is debuting with The Elder Scrolls Online. Given that the two options are related, with a capable PC, you could have both boosts to performance.
For more on how the tech works and instructions on how to enable one or both enhancement options, you can see this Nvidia November update page.
