In our weekly update, we bring you the latest news on DLSS and ray tracing integrations in various games and applications. Last week, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was launched, featuring DLSS 3 and ray tracing.
Additionally, several DLSS 2 games were also released. This week, during COMPUTEX 2023, we are excited to announce that Ash Echoes, Honor of Kings: World, and Legend of Ymir will all be launching with DLSS 3, while Party Animals will feature DLSS 2. Furthermore, we are celebrating the release of Diablo IV with DLSS 3 and System Shock with DLSS 2.
NVIDIA DLSS: Now Available in Over 300 Games and Apps
NVIDIA DLSS utilizes the power of AI and GeForce RTX Tensor Cores to enhance frame rates while preserving exceptional image quality. With DLSS 3, AI-driven frame generation generates new, high-quality frames for smoother gameplay. By combining DLSS 3 with our Super Resolution technology, AI can render seven out of every eight pixels in a scene. The adoption of DLSS continues to gain momentum, and we are thrilled to share that NVIDIA DLSS now offers AI-accelerated performance in over 300 games and applications.
Diablo IV officially launches June 6th, though Digital Deluxe and Ultimate Edition buyers can begin playing up to four days early*. To give GeForce gamers the definitive PC experience, Blizzard and NVIDIA have partnered to bring our game-changing technologies to Diablo IV. GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers can max out frame rates with NVIDIA DLSS 3 Frame Generation, and other GeForce RTX users can accelerate performance with DLSS 2's critically acclaimed Super Resolution technology. In Diablo IV, DLSS 3 helps GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers multiply performance at 4K by an average of 2.5X. In our action-filled benchmark, performance on the GeForce RTX 4090 increased by 2.4X, enabling us to play at 229 frames per second with every single setting maxed out. The GeForce RTX 4080 hit 177 FPS, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti ran Diablo IV at 139 FPS, and the GeForce RTX 4070 113 FPS. At 2560x1440, DLSS 3 enables the GeForce RTX 4070 to play Diablo IV at over 170 frames per second, with frame rates hitting 335 FPS on the GeForce RTX 4090. And at 1920x1080 all GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards can play at over 200 FPS.
GeForce gamers can improve responsiveness in Diablo IV by enabling NVIDIA Reflex. NVIDIA Reflex is a must-have in games, reducing system latency so your actions occur quicker, giving you a competitive edge. Reflex is available in many single-player games and 9 out of 10 of top competitive shooters, is used by over 50 million players each month, and is activated by 90% of GeForce gamers in the 70+ supported titles.
Using Reflex, system latency is reduced by up to 67% in Diablo IV, helping you vanquish the forces of evil, delivering responsiveness in intense battles, helping you stay alive in Hardcore mode, and providing you the ultimate experience against human foes in PvP.
Additionally, we can confirm that ray tracing will come to Diablo IV at a later date, enhancing Sanctuary's detailed world, and making battles even more spectacular.
If you intend to upgrade your system for Diablo IV, act fast: the Diablo IV GeForce RTX 40 Series Bundle is only available until June 13th. Buyers of eligible GeForce RTX 4070, 4070 Ti, 4080 and 4090 graphics cards and desktop PCs from select retailers and etailers will receive a Battle.net copy of Diablo IV and four cosmetic items.

System Shock Out Today, Enhanced With DLSS 2
1994's System Shock is one of the most influential 'immersive sim' first person games of all time, leading to the creation of popular franchises such as Deus Ex, Prey, Thief and BioShock. Set in a space station governed by SHODAN, a sinister AI, System Shock was an amazing, transformative experience.
Nightdive Studios has remade the entirety of System Shock in Unreal Engine 4, so a new generation of players can try to topple SHODAN - doing so on a GeForce RTX GPU unlocks support for DLSS 2, which can more than double your frame rate at 4K max settings.
System Shock launches today, so you won't have long to wait to experience one of gaming's classic titles in an entirely new light.
