Nvidia introduced DLSS 3 at the keynote which has introduced an enthralling new way to render games in real-time to boost frame rates. DLSS 3 will be using a new technology called Optical Multi Frame Generation to recreate entire frames, unlike DLSS 2 which was rendering pixels. The company showed how the DLSS 3 was boosting frame rates by 4x as compared to native resolution.
To further showcase the capability of DLSS 3, Nvidia displayed Cyberpunk 2077 with DLSS 2 running the game at 62 FPS in 4K resolution. Then, Cyberpunk 2077 was seen running with DLSS 3 and hitting a peak of 101 FPS. DLSS 3 will be launched on October 12 by Nvidia.

What is DLSS?
Deep Learning Super Sampling, better known as DLSS, is Nvidia’s technology that renders frames at a lower resolution and then uses AI technology and ray tracing to upscale it to a higher resolution. Simply put, this method boosts framerates and delivers shaper quality. For example, a game rendered at 1080p and upscaled to 4K, would provide quality than 1080p resolution and at the same time, deliver better framerates than playing in native 4K.
Nvidia RTX Remix
Nvidia’s Studio suite is adding a new modding platform called RTX Remix. This new modding tool will allow users to create RTX remasters of classic games. They can use the free tools available to create RTX mods that enhance graphic quality, add full ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS 3 and Nvidia Reflex to classic games.
To demonstrate the capabilities of RTX Remix to remaster old games was shown off during the keynote with a short teaser for Portal with RTX On. Valve's iconic Portal game has been enhanced using RTX Remix and it will be arriving as a free update for all Portal owners in November to celebrate Portal's 15th anniversary. Take a quick look at how RTX Remix improves Portal in the video above.
