Nvidia DLSS 2.0 Support Boosts Performance Over 50% in Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal DLSS

NVIDIA has rolled out RTX and DLSS 2.0 support for Doom Eternal and the latter is proving a really big deal. While RTX provides real-time ray-traced lighting for a more natural feel, DLSS 2.0 provides a huge boost in performance.

With the performance preset, you can get a huge fps increase of 50%. In the Quality preset as well, you are quite literally getting more performance out of your card for no tradeoff in the look and feel of the game. NVIDIA said the following about RTX and DLSS 2.0 support coming to DOOM ETERNAL.

This new RTX upgrade, available now, gives GeForce gamers a DOOM Eternal experience that is second to none, with blazing fast frame rates courtesy of NVIDIA DLSS, and gorgeous ray-traced reflections that enhance the DOOM Slayer’s campaign. Visual effects and their lighting reflect, enemies and scenery are accurately reflected, and players experience a superior level of image quality that further improves DOOM Eternal’s award-winning gameplay while engrossing them with the increased dynamism delivered by ray tracing.

Raytracing support first provides some nice and detailed reflections and also some ambiance/occlusion changes in many different environments. And DLSS 2.0 brings huge performance uplift to the gamers. DLSS 2.0 is providing a performance boost of over 20% while using the quality preset at 1080p – and much more when using the performance preset.

At 1440p, the performance increase is even more, 24% on average at the quality preset. NVIDIA did not provide the quality preset performance increase for 4k but the performance preset yields a mindboggling fps increase of 50%.

DLSS 2.0 is quickly shaping up to be the killer app for NVIDIA RTX GPUs and as support for more games is added, it can breathe new life into older GPUs like the RTX 2000 series. We can’t wait for more games to support DLSS 2.0.
