Escape From Tarkov will soon receive Nvidia DLSS, AMD FSR at a later date
Nvidia DLSS is fast approaching for Escape from Tarkov players, as the update could be available as soon as this week. Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) is a quick and easy way to increase fps if you have an Nvidia RTX graphics card, and we’ll take all the footage we can get given the game is still in beta and quite demanding on your gaming PC.
Developer Battlestate Games is hard at work optimizing Escape From Tarkov, and CEO Nikita Buyanov tells Twitch chat that Nvidia DLSS is “ready” (thanks WCCFTech). While he doesn’t say exactly when the fps boost feature will arrive, he does say it’s “planned for the nearest patch”, which is expected this week or next depending on the final folds that have to be flattened.
Nvidia DLSS will arrive with four modes to choose from: DLSS Disabled, DLSS Quality, DLSS Balanced, and DLSS Performance. As there is no sign of Ultra Performance and Ultra Quality, other settings may arrive at some point in the future. You can check the differences for yourself by fast forwarding to 30 minutes after the presentation starts.
Alongside DLSS, Battlestate Games is also tinkering with AMD FSR, which Buyanov says “will also be available in-game later.” Unfortunately, it’s unclear how long you’ll have to wait for the FidelityFX super resolution, but it’s comforting to know that compatible AMD graphics cards and Nvidia GTX 10-series GPUs will eventually be able to boost Tarkov’s fps.
The scaling technology is a welcome addition, but players are more interested in what Battlestate Games is doing to combat cheaters. While it might not seem like it, Buyanov says the developer isn’t waiting to roll out anti-cheat patches once they’re ready, and there are “updates almost every day.”
