NVIDIA officially announces and details DLSS 2.1, brings ultra performance mode for 8K gaming

A few days ago, DLSS 2.1 appeared in Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s Steam database. And during a recent Reddit AMA, NVIDIA has officially revealed this new version of DLSS. Yes, DLSS 2.1 is real, and here are its official details, straight from NVIDIA.

According to NVIDIA, DLSS 2.1 brings a new ultra performance mode for 8K gaming. NVIDIA claims that DLSS 2.1 will deliver 8K gaming on GeForce RTX 3090 with a new 9x scaling option. And, as you may have guessed, Wolfenstein: Youngblood was one of the games that were showcased running on the RTX3090.

Furthermore, DLSS 2.1 will bring VR support. As such, developers can now finally use DLSS tech in their VR games, something that was not possible with the previous versions of DLSS.

Lastly, DLSS 2.1 brings dynamic resolution support.

“The input buffer can change dimensions from frame to frame while the output size remains fixed. If the rendering engine supports dynamic resolution, DLSS can be used to perform the required upscale to the display resolution.”
