Nvidia is Letting Developers Test DLSS Models Directly From Its Supercomputer
NVIDIA has been at the forefront of graphics innovation for many years. The RTX 30-series cards were released last year by NVIDIA. This allowed them to push the limits of visual performance. The company has promoted technologies like ray tracing with its RTX cards but DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) has had a greater impact on gamers.
Nvidia’s graphics cards use DLSS to enhance performance in games. The technology uses a deep learning neural network to upscale images from lower resolutions to higher resolutions. Gamers can run hardware-intensive features like raytracing at higher frame rates thanks to this. The technology’s unique aspect is the ability to “continually improve” the AI model used in DLSS using NVIDIA’s supercomputer. Although DLSS is not supported by all games, this number appears to be increasing.
NVIDIA recently announced that the company would allow developers to test the latest models of DLSS. This news included the fact that developers can now test on NVIDIA’s supercomputer. According to the company developers can now download Dynamic-link Libraries (DLLs). This is a great opportunity for gamers as it allows them to test the systems and send NVIDIA feedback so that the technology can improve.
NVIDIA has provided 2 experimental DLSS models to test these features as developers attempt to use them. They are called “White Collie 1” and “White Collie 2”. It is important to note that these features may not be available in the upcoming official DLSS release for the public. NVIDIA also cautioned that these 2 models were not yet fully validated and could contain regressions.
These models were designed to improve the visibility of particles and detail objects in motion. It also aimed to reduce ghosting, improve native instability and make software more user-friendly. The second model offered developers an alternative solution to ghosting in applications and games.
NVIDIA GPUs are still being sought by many consumers who want to benefit from the new testing for DLSS. These cards are in short supply due to the ongoing shortage of chips. Recent analysis suggests that this could result in a rise in GPU supply by 2023. These cards will hopefully become more readily available over the next months to allow gamers access to this constantly improving technology.
