Cyberpunk 2077 is growing to be one hell of a game—Cyberpunk 2077 will support DLSS 2.0. This is the second generation of Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling technology, which uses A.I. to upscale images. The guarantee of DLSS 2.0 is better-looking graphics without the performance punishment that would normally come from running a game at a higher resolution.
Nvidia partially addressed with DLSS 2.0, which no longer requires its AI network to be trained on a per-game basis. Game-specific details still can be part of the equation, but it is no longer the only way to go.
I have to think that CD Projekt Red worked with Nvidia to lead its AI specifically for Cyberpunk 2077, but either way, it supports DLSS 2.0. That’s excellent news if you own a GeForce RTX graphics card, which is still needed for DLSS.
It remains to be seen how resource hog Cyberpunk 2077 ends up being on hardware overall. We also know that it is releasing with support for real-time ray tracing, a critical technology in and of itself, and what we’ve seen so far looks beautiful. With any luck, it will run greatly as well, only time will tell.
