NVIDIA DLSS is a new and improved deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates and generates beautiful, sharp images for your games and applications. It gives you the performance headroom to maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolution. DLSS is powered by dedicated AI processors on RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores.

DLSS Benefits

Uncompromised Quality with Higher Performance

Advanced temporal upscaling produces images comparable or better to native resolution while rendering a fraction of the pixels, letting you maximize frame rate.

AI Models That Continuously Improve

AI models that continuously improve through ongoing training on NVIDIA supercomputers and provide better image quality across more games and applications.

Provides Headroom For Ray Tracing

Allows for more realistic visualization that takes advantage of ray tracing techniques.

DLSS Supported Engines

DLSS is now available in Unreal Engine 5, 4.27 and 4.26 through our official DLSS UE plugin. Unreal Engine developers can benefit from the boosted frame rates and beautiful, sharp images that DLSS enables. Unlock the power of NVIDIA’s deep learning neural network today.

“DLSS is game-changing, as it improves render results while lowering performance cost. It has become an integral part of our render pipeline,”

Dennis Boleslawski, head of virtual production at HYPERBOWL.

“DLSS is a really powerful way in which we’re bringing the more demanding Unreal Engine renders to a high enough performance/noise ratio needed for live virtual production,”

Adrian Pueyo, virtual production supervisor at Orca Studios.

“DLSS enables higher quality and faster frame rates to create an unprecedented visual experience for homebuyers with almost no extra development time at our end,”

Paul Hellawell, project lead at Away Digital Home.


 A: DLSS is a deep learning neural network that uses the power of the NVIDIA RTX TensorCores to boost frame rates and generate sharp frames that approach or exceed native rendering.

 A: DLSS is powered by NVIDIA RTX Tensor Cores. By tapping into a deep learning neural network, DLSS is able to combine anti-aliasing, feature enhancement, image sharpening and display scaling which traditional anti-aliasing solutions cannot. With this approach, DLSS delivers up to 2X greater performance with comparable image quality to full resolution native rendering.

 A: You can access the binary Unreal Engine DLSS plugin here. You can also get source via GitHub. Follow the instructions on the UE / GitHub page to link your Epic Games and GitHub accounts to gain access. The plugin is compatible with UE5 and UE4.26.

 A: DLSS is available for all NVIDIA RTX GPUs and all resolution.

 A: Yes, NVIDIA® Image Scaling (SDK) is an open source, best-in-class, spatial upscaler and sharpening algorithm that works cross-platform on all GPUs. NVIDIA® Image Scaling SDK is a great compliment to NVIDIA DLSS for developers looking for a solution to support non-RTX GPUs. Learn more here.
