Test Drive New NVIDIA DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing) On Elder Scrolls Online Test Servers
Many gamers want higher frame rates. But others have plenty of FPS and instead want to maximize image quality. NVIDIA DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing) is a new AI-based anti-aliasing mode for users who have spare GPU headroom and want higher levels of image quality. DLAA uses the same technology developed for DLSS, but works on a native resolution image to maximize image quality instead of boosting performance. The first implementation is available today on the Elder Scrolls Online test servers. Try it out and let us know your feedback on the Driver Feedback Forum.
“NVIDIA DLAA really improves our game by delivering the best anti-aliasing results in Elder Scrolls Online that we have seen to date.” — Rich Lambert, Creative Director at ZeniMax Online Studios
The first implementation is available today on the Elder Scrolls Online test servers. Try it out and let us know your feedback on the Driver Feedback Forum.
