We have written a lot about Nvidias DLSS-technology that uses AI to upscale images to give a boost to the frame rate while trying to still offer great image quality.

Well, they are in luck as Nvidia now has presented Deep Learning Dynamic Super Resolution, DLDSR (phew, say that fast a few times).Read More »

In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).Read More »
