Shadow of the Tomb Raider will get DLSS support alongside the real-time ray tracing effects

Back in August 2018, NVIDIA and Nixxes Software showcased the real-time ray tracing effects for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Unfortunately, though, those RTX effects had a huge impact, resulting in really underwhelming performance and while the game has been released, there is no word yet on when these effects will be available to players. 

Still, the good news here is that NVIDIA and Nixxes have not abandoned their RTX plans and they are still working hard to put the final touches on it. Not only that, but the game will receive official DLSS support alongside the real-time ray tracing effects.

Nixxes will be using real-time ray tracing effects in order to improve the game’s shadows. Similarly to Battlefield 5 and 3DMark Port Royal, Nixxes will also use DLSS in order to improve overall performance and allow higher framerates when using these ray traced shadows (we assume that players will also be able to use DLSS without the RTX effects).

There is no ETA on when the RTX patch for Shadow of the Tomb Raider will come out however we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
