(Pocket-lint) – When Nvidia’s DLSS technology started to become available, it felt like a bit of a revolution in the kind of results you could expect from a gaming laptop – your hardware almost looked like it had been upgraded. level without you doing anything.
DLSS stands for Deep Learning Super Sampling, which helps increase frame rate while delivering great gaming images. DLSS promises to increase performance and efficiency while delivering superior image quality. How do they do it? We have all the details right here.
Tensor cores, AI, performance boost
Nvidia’s Tensor Cores are hardware elements built into its GPUs and specialized in performing artificial intelligence calculations. With DLSS, the NVIDIA GPU partially renders an image and then uses its Tensor Cores and AI algorithms to fill in the missing information. This is a smart optimization that allows the GPU to render more frames while DLSS fills in the rest.
By enabling DLSS, your GPU is freed up; it is able to deliver more frames per second to your screen since the AI helps to generate the image.
How does DLSS help laptop energy efficiency?
Along with the portability of a laptop comes constraints on power, heat, and noise. All components inside the laptop must share power and thermal solutions while trying to keep noise and temperatures under control.
How does your laptop hardware perform given these constraints? It’s all about efficiency, and it’s another way to look at laptop hardware.
Every laptop GPU has to operate within a power limit, and DLSS is unique for laptops because it increases game performance while keeping the GPU running at the same power.
More performance, same power. This is how DLSS lets you get the most out of the hardware already in your laptop, this is how DLSS increases efficiency.
AI has made great strides in recent years, and DLSS is no exception. With DLSS, users can expect similar or even better image quality than natively rendered images without the help of AI. In some cases, DLSS produces significantly better images because the AI algorithm uses temporal feedback techniques for sharper image detail and better frame-to-frame stability.
DLSS provides users with four image quality modes: Quality, Balanced, Performance, and Ultra Performance. These control the game’s internal rendering resolution, with Performance mode allowing up to 4 times the resolution (1080p → 4K) to be changed. The user gets more options and can change the DLSS mode for even greater performance increases.
When you put the performance, efficiency, and image quality benefits together, DLSS really starts to look pretty miraculous. Find out even more about Nvidia here, and be sure to enable it if you have compatible hardware – you might never look back!
