Deep learning — born on the NVIDIA GPUs that got their start with gaming — now makes graphics sharper and games smarter.

Cloud gaming — thanks to their long, continued investment in the GeForce NOW service — makes high-quality games available on the next billion devices: underpowered PCs, Macs and smartphones.

Faster Games - Games are also getting faster. That’s because the modern AI revolution — grounded in deep learning — was born on the NVIDIA GPUs gamers rely on. And now that revolution is coming back to where it all started, gaming, to make games faster still.

Powered by Turing’s Tensor Cores, which perform lightning-fast deep neural network processing, GeForce RTX GPUs support Deep Learning Super-Sampling. DLSS applies deep learning and AI to rendering techniques, resulting in crisp, smooth edges on rendered objects in games.

Variable rate shading, a technology pioneered by NVIDIA, increases rendering performance and quality by varying the shading rate for different regions of the frame. It will be coming to the next-generation Xbox.
