From an NVIDIA GeForce post:

In Mundfish’s Atomic Heart, humans live in a utopia full of wonders, in harmony with their loyal and fervent robots. But with the upcoming launch of a new neural network version allowing them to control robots just mere days away, terrifying machines, superpowered robots and mutated creatures rise up against their creators, and only you can save Atomic Heart’s idealized world.

When DLSS 3 is enabled, 4K performance with a GeForce RTX 4090 will be boosted by 90% to 184 FPS, and with a GeForce RTX 4080 increased by 80% to 146 FPS. With a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti at 1440p, DLSS 3 increases performance by 62%, running at max settings at over 160 FPS. DLSS 3 can also help boost performance in CPU bound scenarios.

Returnal, Sony and Housemarque’s critically acclaimed third-person roguelike shooter, is now available on PC with a feature-packed conversion courtesy of Climax Studios. After crash-landing on a shape-shifting world, players must guide astronaut Selene through the barren landscape of an ancient civilization for her escape. Isolated and alone, she finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again, she’s defeated – forced to restart her journey every time she dies.

When DLSS 2 is enabled, 4K performance with a GeForce RTX 4090 will be boosted by 65% to 136 FPS, with a GeForce RTX 4080 it’s increased by 77% to 113 FPS, and with a GeForce 4070 Ti it’s increased by 89% to 96 FPS.
