Final Fantasy XV is the first game that officially supports Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS)

Now here is a pleasant surprise. While Square Enix stated that the development for the PC version of Final Fantasy XV has been ceased, NVIDIA has just released a new driver that adds Deep Learning Super Sampling support to it.

NVIDIA claims that this DLSS support is still in a beta phase, meaning that there might be additional performance boost in future drivers. Right now there is no DLSS option in the game, meaning that Square Enix will release shortly a patch that will add this setting to it.

To enable DLSS, download the FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION update once available on Steam, open the in-game options menu, set your resolution to 4K and enable DLSS under your Anti-aliasing settings.

Furthermore, this driver fixes the following issues.

  • [SLI][TITAN Xp]: SLI is disabled by default after installing the driver. [200471881]
  • [TITAN V][NVIDIA Control Panel]: The Workstation->Manage GPU Utilization page appears when it shouldn’t. [200470813]
  • [Rocket League]: The game launches to a white screen with audio in the background and then crashes. [2451530]
  • [Battlefield V: Day0 97][Ansel]: After being moved all the way to the left, the Ansel field-of view (FoV) slider stops following the click-and-drag mouse movement.[2438857]
  • [Hitman 2 Silent assassin]: There is flickering texture corruption in the game.[200472315]
  • [Notebook][3D games]: Frame rate of 3D games may drop to under 30 fps on notebooks. [2456653]

Those interested can download the NVIDIA GeForce 417.35 WHQL driver from here, and we’ll be sure to test Final Fantasy XV with and without DLSS!
