First look at The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with DLSS 3 Frame Generation

Earlier this month, we informed you about a DLSS 3 Frame Generation that is in development for Elden Ring and Skyrim. And yesterday, PureDark released a video that gives us a glimpse at this DLSS 3 Mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

In this video, PureDark simulated a CPU-bottleneck scenario in order to showcase the framerate improvements that DLSS 3 Frame Generation brings to the table. And, as with other games using DLSS 3, you can expect your overall performance to double.

Let’s also not forget that Skyrim was never able to take full advantage of multicore CPUs. In fact, PC players had to mess with the game’s INI in order to improve performance. So, by using DLSS 3, you can effectively bypass these CPU bottlenecks. This is similar to what we saw in The Witcher 3 Next-Gen Update, Microsoft Flight Simulator and Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed.

The fact that modders can implement DLSS 3 Frame Generation is various games is something that really excites me. And do you know what game would greatly benefit from it? Grand Theft Auto 4. Yes, GTA 4 is a game that desperately needs DLSS 3 Frame Generation. After all, it still is a CPU-heavy title, even in 2024. Thus, let’s hope that PureDark will consider adding it to it. That’s of course after releasing the DLSS 3 Mods for Elden Ring and Skyrim.

Unfortunately, there is still no word on when this mod will be publicly available. Naturally, though, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
