When the GeForce RTX2080Ti came out two months ago, NVIDIA and Square Enix provided the media with a special version of the Final Fantasy XV benchmark tool that supported DLSS. And today, the green team has made this special version of the benchmark tool available to everyone.
According to the teams, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 or 2080 Ti is required to run NVIDIA DLSS and in order to enable it you’ll need to set your display resolution to 4K. In other words, there is no DLSS support for 1440p or for other resolutions, something that may disappoint some gamers. Moreover, NVIDIA Ansel is disabled when NVIDIA DLSS is enabled.
The Final Fantasy XV benchmark looks crisper and cleaner thanks to DLSS. Dithering is almost eliminated and the ghosting of moving detail is virtually nonexistent. Now while this shows the benefits of DLSS, we should point out that the TAA implementation in this particular game was awful. As such, you should not expect the same improvements in games that have implemented TAA in better ways.
Still, it’s a bit disappointing that we’ll never get the benefits of DLSS in the actual game. A few days ago, Square Enix confirmed that the PC production has been cancelled, meaning that DLSS as well as the promised modding tools will not come out.
