F1 2021 Patch 1.05 improves DLSS, adds Ray Tracing Quality setting

As we wrote in our “Ray Tracing & DLSS Benchmarks“, F1 2021’s DLSS implementation wasn’t that good and it suffered from some awful ray-traced shadows. And it appears that Codemasters is trying to improve these two issues in the latest update for this new F1 racing game.

According to the release notes, patch 1.05 packs improvements to the DLSS implementation. Moreover, it adds a setting to adjust the quality of Ray Tracing.

Alongside these improvements, this new update resolves a number of crashes. It also fixes a number of bugs, packs general stability improvements, and includes other various minor fixes.

As always, Steam will download this update the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
