Fortnite is set to receive DLSS 3 support this fall, enhancing the game’s performance exclusively for RTX 40 series graphics cards.
- Nvidia announces DLSS 3 support for Fortnite as part of its Gamescom 2023 announcements.
- DLSS 3, released with GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080, can increase frame rates up to four times.
- The support will be exclusive to RTX 40 series graphics cards, leaving RTX 20 and 30 owners out.
Nvidia has confirmed that Epic Games’ widely popular free-to-play battle royale, Fortnite, will receive the third generation of DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) support this fall. This announcement comes as part of Nvidia’s Gamescom 2023 lineup.
DLSS 3 was released alongside the GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 graphics cards last year. It is an AI-powered performance multiplier that can increase frame rates for supported games by up to four times what was previously available. Unfortunately, DLSS 3 will be exclusive to the RTX 40 series graphics cards, meaning RTX 20 and 30 owners won’t be able to play Fortnite on DLSS 3.
This is not the first time Nvidia has rolled out its DLSS tech onto Fortnite. In 2020, the company announced that the game would receive support for DLSS 2.
Other games confirmed to get Nvidia DLSS 3 include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PayDay 3, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, and Alan Wake 2. The latter two, along with Portal RTX, are also getting DLSS 3.5, the latest version of Nvidia’s tech that introduces a new feature called Ray Reconstruction. This feature will enhance the ray-traced image quality for RTX 40 series GPUs by replacing hand-tuned denoisers with Nvidia supercomputer-trained AI networks to craft higher-quality pixels.
Fortnite continues to push the boundaries of gaming technology, and the addition of DLSS 3 support promises to provide players with an even more immersive and visually stunning experience.
Fortnite is available on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, Android, iPhone, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series, and PS5.
