NVIDIA Introduces DLSS 3 With Breakthrough AI-Powered Frame Generation for up to 4x Performance
GeForce RTX 40 Series of GPUs support DLSS 3, an AI-powered performance multiplier that kicks off a new era of NVIDIA RTX neural rendering for games and applications. DLSS 3 builds on the company’s lead in AI-accelerated super-resolution techniques to deliver outstanding image quality and up to 4x the performance of brute-force rendering, plus the quick responsiveness that defines a comprehensive gaming experience.
Powered by new fourth-generation Tensor Cores and a new Optical Flow Accelerator on GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs, DLSS 3 is the latest iteration of the company’s critically acclaimed Deep Learning Super Sampling technology and introduces a new capability called Optical Multi Frame Generation. Optical Multi Frame Generation generates entirely new frames, rather than just pixels, delivering astounding performance boosts. Because DLSS Frame Generation executes as a post-process on the GPU, it can boost frame rates even when the game is bottlenecked by the CPU.
Game Developers Embrace DLSS 3: Over 35 Games, Applications Coming Soon
The revolutionary power of DLSS 3 is a boon for game developers who want to express their artistic vision. The technology is coming to the world’s most popular game engines, such as Unity and Unreal Engine. DLSS 3 has also received support from many of the world’s leading game developers, with more than 35 games and applications announcing support.

Portal Is RTX ON!
NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios has reimagined Valve’s iconic video game Portal, regarded as one of the best video games of all time. Advanced graphics features such as full ray tracing and DLSS 3 give the game a striking new look and feel. Portal with RTX will be released as free, official downloadable content for the classic platformer with RTX graphics in November, just in time for Portal’s 15th anniversary.
Portal with RTX, Made Possible by NVIDIA RTX Remix
Portal with RTX is made possible by the new NVIDIA RTX Remix modding platform that also debuted in today’s GeForce Beyond special broadcast at GTC. A “mod”—short for “modification”—is new in-game content that players create as opposed to the developers. RTX Remix is an NVIDIA Omniverse-based modding platform to create stunning RTX remasters of classic games. RTX Remix allows modders to easily capture game assets, automatically enhance materials with powerful AI tools, and quickly enable RTX with ray tracing and DLSS.

Creativity At The Speed of Light: GeForce RTX 40 Series Graphics Cards Unleash Up To 2X Performance In 3D Rendering, AI, and Video Exports For Gamers and Creator
The RTX 40 Series GPUs and DLSS 3 deliver advancements for NVIDIA Studio creators, too. 3D artists can render fully ray-traced environments with accurate physics and realistic materials, and view the changes in real time, without proxies.
Live streamers and video producers are getting a massive boost, too. New dual encoders cut video export times in half. And the eighth-generation NVIDIA Encoder adds support for AV1, boosting livestream quality. The NVIDIA Broadcast software development kit has three updates, now available for partners, including Face Expression Estimation, Eye Contact and quality improvements to Virtual Background.
Revolutionary AI technology, like AI image generators and new video-editing tools in DaVinci Resolve, are ushering in a new wave of creativity. Beyond-fast GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards will power the next step in the AI revolution, delivering up to a 2X increase in AI performance over the previous generation.
