Leveling up your games with the cutting-edge technologies found in the biggest blockbusters just got a lot simpler. As of today, Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) developers can now access DLSS as a plugin for Unreal Engine 4.26. Additionally, NVIDIA Reflex is now available as a feature in Unreal Engine. The NVIDIA RTX UE4 4.25 and 4.26 branches have also received updates.
NVIDIA DLSS Plugin for UE4
DLSS is a deep learning super resolution network that boosts frame rates by rendering fewer pixels and then using AI to construct sharp, higher resolution images. Dedicated computational units on NVIDIA RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores accelerate the AI calculations, allowing the algorithm to run in real-time. DLSS pairs perfectly with computationally intensive rendering algorithms such as real-time ray tracing. The technology has been used to increase performance in a broad range of games, including Fortnite, Cyperpunk 2077, Minecraft, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Death Stranding.
DLSS is now available for the first time for mainline UE4 as a plugin, compatible with UE4.26. Enjoy great scaling across all GeForce RTX GPUs and resolutions, including the new ultra performance mode for 8K gaming.
