Call of Duty: Warzone gives Nvidia GPUs another edge with DLSS apparently coming this week
Call of Duty: Warzone will get DLSS support later this week, thanks to an Nvidia newsletter that was featured on Twitter.
Wccftech spotted that Leonardo Leal tweeted that Nvidia’s latest weekly newsletter marks the full launch of Nvidia Reflex for Overwatch, but in the subject line also mentions that DLSS will be available for Warzone on April 22, this Thursday.
@NVIDIAGeForce I received this week’s GeForce newsletter from you with this text “Warzone DLSS launch on 4/22” in the subject, but I can’t find any news about it on the site, just this text on the E-mail. Is it real? #NVIDIAGeForce #dlss #Warzone pic.twitter.com/wVGrrf0yo2April 17, 2021
Take this with some caution until we hear it officially from Nvidia, of course – there hasn’t been any official announcement anywhere else, or any other indication except for this alleged mention.
However, we already knew that Call of Duty: Warzone was slated for DLSS support in January (around the same time the feature was announced as coming from Outriders).
We mentioned that Nvidia Reflex was becoming available for Overwatch recently, and as you may know, this latency reduction technology is already available with Warzone (in fact, it was introduced last September).
So those with an Nvidia GPU will not only benefit from reduced input lag but also increased frame rate via DLSS (this is one of the best features of Nvidia graphically. , and AMD has no rival for – at least not yet, although Team Red is working hard on it).
DLSS essentially increases the resolution, so you can run what looks like 4K, or close to it, for example, while demanding 1440p from your GPU, thus achieving much faster frame rates than running natively in 4K (not much of a difference from the picture, or that’s certainly the theory – and the tech works just fine overall).
A growing number of PC games support DLSS, and many more to come in one way or another. Indeed, if you’re interested, we’ve compiled a roundup of the best DLSS-powered games that’s well worth checking out.
