NVIDIA has released a comparison video and first-party benchmarks that demonstrate how its deep learning super sampling image upscaling technology, DLSS, improves performance in 4A Games’ newly released Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition. According to the benchmarks, DLSS 2.0 “Performance Mode” allows all GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards, as well as the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, to run the game at 4K at over 60 FPS at max settings with ultra ray tracing enabled. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 owners can enjoy frame rates of up to 125.6 and 97.9 FPS at the 4K setting, respectively.
NVIDIA DLSS 1.0 in the original Metro Exodus release boosted GeForce RTX players’ performance by up to 30%. In the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, 4A Games has incorporated NVIDIA DLSS 2.0, which uses AI to produce images that are even better than native resolution with Temporal Anti-Aliasing alone, while only conventionally rendering a fraction of the pixels. The result is a clearer, cleaner, smoother picture, that runs 2X faster at 4K, giving GeForce RTX users a substantial performance boost, and the headroom to activate all of the PC Enhanced Edition’s ray-traced effects.
