Lost Judgment feature

NVIDIA DLSS 2 is noticeably better than AMD FSR 2.1 in Lost Judgment

The modder behind the DLSS Mod for Judgment and Lost Judgment has released a new version that is compatible with AMD FSR 2.1. As such, we’ve decided to compare these two upscaling techniques in this game and although DLSS 2 is not officially supported by the game, it looks noticeably better than FSR 2.1.

For these comparison screenshots, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3800Mhz and NVIDIA’s RTX 3080. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, and the GeForce 516.94 driver. Furthermore, we set both AMD FSR 2.1 and NVIDIA DLSS 2 to Quality Mode.

Performance-wise, DLSS 2 and FSR 2.1 offer the exact same performance boost on the RTX3080. There is a 2-3fps difference between them, but this usually falls in the margin of error territory.

However, when it comes to image quality, DLSS 2 is far superior to FSR 2.1. Below you find some comparison screenshots between DLSS 2 (left) and FSR 2.1 (right).

If you open these images in a new tab, you’ll see that there is more aliasing in the FSR 2.1 images. Since it may be hard for some to see, I’ve used ICAT in order to zoom in and better showcase it.

Although DLSS 2 is better than FSR 2.1, there are some objects that are better defined in FSR 2.1. Take for instance this cable which is clearly more aliased in DLSS 2.

Overall, though, NVIDIA DLSS 2 looks way better than AMD FSR 2.1. Thus, we strongly suggest using the DLSS mod for both Judgment and Lost Judgment (which you can download from here).

Have fun!
