Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is among a slate of new games that will be getting NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support. For PSO2, this support will start on February 9th, after the game’s update.
For those with GeForce RTX cards that support DLSS, this means there will be higher image quality when running the game, with a higher framerate. To mark the announcement at CES, Sega has a brand new comparison preview so you can take a look at just what the application of DLSS tech means for New Genesis.
Sometimes when you’re battling, traveling, or chasing down your goal, timing matters. It doesn’t hurt that everything also looks better while you’re doing it with this tech. When it is added with the February update, you’ll be able to choose it and configure the DLSS option for your setup by going to the graphics setting menu. DLSS is a platform using ray tracing and AI for performance improvement and a better image quality.
There are over 150 games supporting DLSS, and some others have begun supporting a related technology, NVIDIA’s DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing). Beginning with The Elder Scrolls Online, this tech allows for better anti-aliasing and allows even an aging game to continue looking good. This one doesn’t affect performance, but it’s one of the options available that should aid enjoyment.
Other games getting the DLSS treatment this time around include Rainbow Six: Extraction, Midnight Ghost Hunt, Hitman III, The Day Before, and Escape from Tarkov. For cards that support NVIDIA DLSS technology, there’s an official list to see if your machine fits the bill.
