NVIDIA releases new drivers for Atomic Heart and THE FINALS with AI-powered super-resolution RTX video
NVIDIA today released a new GeForce Game Ready driver for Atomic Heart with NVIDIA DLSS 3 and THE FINALS closed beta starting March 7. This new driver also introduces support for RTX Video Super Resolution (VSR), which uses AI to improve the quality of any video streamed through Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers on GeForce RTX Series 30 and 40 GPUs.
Game Ready for Atomic Heart with NVIDIA DLSS 3
When Atomic Heart launched on February 21, GeForce RTX gamers had class-leading performance, with in-game support for NVIDIA DLSS 3, NVIDIA DLSS 2, and NVIDIA Reflex.
With DLSS 3 enabled, 4K performance with a GeForce RTX 4090 increases by 90% to 184 FPS, and with a GeForce RTX 4080 increases by 80% to 146 FPS. Running a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti at 1440p, DLSS 3 increases performance by 62% and runs on max settings at over 160 FPS. And DLSS 3 can also help improve performance in CPU constrained scenarios.
Game Ready for THE FINALS Closed Beta!
THE FINALS by Embark Studios is an upcoming free-to-play shooter set in a highly destructive world, making each match unique. The highly anticipated game is also packed with NVIDIA technologies, including:
NVIDIA Reflex – Enabled with a single click in the options menu, Reflex reduces system latency by up to 55%, making gameplay even more responsive and allowing in-game actions to happen faster. In competitive shooters like THE FINALS, Reflex gives players a competitive edge that can make the difference between winning or not winning.
NVIDIA DLSS: RTX gamers can maximize performance by enabling NVIDIA DLSS technology.
NVIDIA RTXGI is used to accurately calculate light and shadow when buildings open up and walls collapse. RTXGI uses hardware-accelerated ray tracing to produce richer, more realistic global illumination on the fly. Players can enable RTXGI’s Dynamic Mode to experience how light realistically bounces off the environment, reacts to destruction, and interacts with volumetric fog and smoke.
A new two-week closed beta begins on March 7, giving players the chance to try THE FINALS ahead of its release later this year.
NVIDIA RTX Super Resolution Video Now Available
RTX Video Super Resolution is an AI image processing upscaler that enables GeForce owners to view upscaled video on 1440p or 4K displays with AI-enhanced sharpness. The GeForce RTX 30 and 40 Series GPUs will render lower resolution video played in your Chrome or Edge browsers to improve video quality.
Combining the power of NVIDIA Tensor Cores with next-generation AI image processing techniques, RTX VSR intelligently sharpens and enhances features and edges while removing distracting compression artifacts. RTX VSR will work on most videos played in a browser, whether it’s a favorite streamer on Twitch or YouTube, or content from streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, or Hulu.
