If you want to geek out a little or a lot, then check out Nvidia’s next-gen graphics cards. They boast an implausible amount of computing power, with specs that kinda boggle the mind.
But if you are interested in where games are heading over the next few years, then check this out. They feature ways to more efficiently handle realtime raytracing, while still managing to look great in 4K. Mainly thanks to their new DLSS technology.
What is DLSS I hear you ask… well, honestly, I’m not sure. But it in layman’s terms – realtime raytracing is very intensive, but using AI to fill in certain blanks that are left by rendering at a lower resolution is actually a lot quicker. I think.
They even have side-by-side comparisons to show you that things rendered with DLSS can actually look better than 4K native, and yes, they look pretty good indeed. It seems to be the trade-off if you want that super-duper next-gen realtime raytracing. And let’s be honest – you do!
