It has been a while since we last had a DLSS-supported game announcement but that changes this week. Today, the racing gurus at Codemasters began rolling out Nvidia DLSS support for F1 2020, enabling RTX GPU owners to maximise their graphics settings while saving on performance.
Nvidia DLSS had a rocky start but since the launch of DLSS 2.0, visuals have come a long way. Aside from improved visuals, the performance gains from DLSS continue to be very strong. Below, you can see the performance lift in F1 2020 at 1080p, 1440p and 4K (UHD) with DLSS on across the full range of RTX graphics cards:
Speaking about the update, F1 franchise director at Codemasters, Lee Mather, said “We wanted F1 2020 to be the most authentic and immersive F1 game to date. NVIDIA DLSS gives users the performance headroom to maximise visual settings, resulting in realistic, immersive graphics”.
As seen in the benchmark charts, DLSS paves the way for 4K at 60 frames per second from the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and up. For those who need a refresher on what DLSS is, it is a deep learning neural network powered by the Tensor Cores found in GeForce RTX GPUs. Games are trained via a machine learning algorithm to produce sharp visuals at a lower internal rendering resolution. The image is then reconstructed and upscaled to your native resolution.

KitGuru Says: We’re gearing up for another round of Nvidia RTX GPUs in the very near future, so hopefully more RTX-supported game announcements will follow suit. Have many of you played F1 2020? Have you tried the new DLSS update?
