NVIDIA has also announced DLSS 3.0. DLSS 3.0 will offer better performance in both GPU and CPU-bound games. This is an incredible feature as it will benefit owners of numerous PC configurations. The catch here though is that in order to take full advantage of DLSS 3.0, you’ll need an Ada Lovelace GPU. NVIDIA stated that older RTX GPUs will still be able to run DLSS 3.0 (though performance gains won’t be as big as those with an Ada Lovelace GPU).
