Outriders ships with new drivers, massive DLSS boost


Outriders has finally arrived, and it’s sounding like the PC version is getting a massive boost courtesy of NVIDIA DLSS.  In fact, based on the measurements NVIDIA has posted, it’s looking like the game is downright playable on even an RTX 2060 at 4K resolution, with 4K/60+ possible even on the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti thanks to the AI-powered tech.  If 4K isn’t your jam, you’ll also see silky smooth 60+ fps at 1440p as well.  Don’t take my word for it, though — here’s some video of the tech in action:

If you are curious what your card might deliver with and without DLSS, you’ll want to check out this graph from big green themselves:

If you are a GeForce NOW subscriber, you’ll also be able to play the game with all the bells and whistles, with Founders and Priority members getting to take advantage of DLSS, priority access, and extended session lengths.

If you are in the market for a new laptop, you’ll also get a copy of the game with just about any GeForce RTX laptops on the market.

Naturally, there is a fresh Game Ready driver released yesterday to take advantage of all the tech.  Here’s an easy link if you’ve not auto-updated with GeForce Experience already.

We’ll be teaming up to tackle this looter shooter co-op game on several platforms, so stay tuned for a whole lot of footage, including our own DLSS analysis, coming very soon.
