NVIDIA technologies are helping to bring a new gaming experience to gamers while delivering outstanding 3D performance. Let’s take a closer look at four of this year’s eye-popping technologies that will make you the star of network gaming.

1# Raytracing: bringing animated movie quality to your games

Previously used by film studios in animated and big budget movies, raytracing is a new rendering technique for the most demanding video games. By simulating the physical behaviour of light, this graphics technology brings video games into a new era, that of photorealism. Shadows, lighting effects, scene lighting, and object lighting enhance 3D scenes and smooth them out, making gamers’ eyes happy, but not their PCs if they don’t have a next-generation graphics card.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards natively support this rendering technology thanks to their GPU’s built-in compute cores. The computational time savings are considerable: up to a factor of 3 compared to a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. And the good news is that most video game engines now support this technology: Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty (Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War), Battlefield V, Fortnite, The Witcher III, Metro Exodus, Doom Eternal, Minecraft, etc. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit your favorite titles with cinema-like image quality!

2# DLSS: when artificial intelligence boosts 4K display!

DLSS, what is it? This acronym for Deep Learning Super Sample could be translated into French as super sampling by machine learning. Simply put, it’s about using artificial intelligence (AI) to calculate images and add missing elements to the final rendering. Here, NVIDIA is using what’s called deep learning. It’s about optimizing calculations and analysis with algorithms and being as close to the data and hardware as possible, unlike machine learning which primarily uses trained models.

Using the powerful algorithms built into DLSS, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics processor compares millions of images at different resolutions to improve raytracing and successfully display it in 4K (or even higher) at a rate of 60 frames per second. It is now possible to display 4K in full screen in real time and without any perceptible slowdown with an unprecedented quality of display of objects and details. Thanks to Tensor cores optimized for deep learning, which requires a lot of processor power, GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards experience no slowdown and minimal latency. The best part? DLSS technology can also generate an i4K image from a lower definition (Full HD) by recreating any missing details using the extrapolation technique. The announced performance gains can even reach a factor of 2!

Currently, about sixty commercial video games support DLSS. This list of titles is growing steadily, much to the delight of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card owners!

3# Reflex: Get the edge on your opponents with ultra-low system latency

Games are won or lost on details. It’s easy to lose when your keyboard, mouse, or controller responds poorly or too slowly. Who hasn’t complained that their keyboard seems too slow to make their character respond? In online games, even the slightest latency can be epic. NVIDIA addresses this problem with Reflex technology.

Built into the GeForce RTX 30 series cards, Reflex aims to reduce mouse and keyboard latency. This technology should make your PC responsive! As we said, latency is the enemy of the gamer. The most difficult thing is to act on all the elements of your PC: keyboard, mouse, controller, processor, graphics card, network, display. Latencies accumulate and can slow down the game’s handling. Reflex is there to save the milliseconds you need where you need them.

With Reflex, you can cut system latency by a factor of 3 on some video games, which is anything but negligible when you know that a few milliseconds of latency can cause you to miss a target or slow down your movements.

To take advantage of this low system latency, video games must support Reflex natively. NVIDIA offers developer kits (SDKs) so that developers can integrate these optimizations directly into games. Reflex also enables faster frame generation by reducing latency between the machine’s CPU and GPU. Finally, Reflex is able to increase the operating frequency of the graphics processor and thus mechanically accelerate rendering performance and thus your performance in your favorite online video games. A must-have for all those who frequently play online on PC!

4# Broadcast: share your livestreams in professional quality!

Online gaming has huge communities of people who team up, compete, and share their passion for gaming. With Broadcast, NVIDIA turns your PC gamer into a personal studio. You can share a gaming session with the community, create your own live streams, or video conference like a pro with your NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card equipped PC.

For example, you can play and comment on your game live, host your show, film yourself in action, and more. You have your own streaming studio and the RTX card encodes the livestreams on the fly! A bit like Pootie in the 1st season of Mythic Quest.

For this you will need a camera, a good microphone and a PC with a GeForce RTX 30 series like the Cybertek Warzone PC or the Cybertek Dark Moon PC. Broadcast is an application that you install on the computer, its configuration being simple and fast. During your live sessions, Broadcast can also reduce unwanted sounds such as those generated by your keyboard or the ventilation of your PC. You can even adjust the sound level of other players participating in your livestream. You can also customize the background with a photo or the current game on the fly, while the framing is done automatically. You’ll have understood: Broadcast is clearly THE ideal solution if you practice e-sports or if you are looking for a technical solution to increase your popularity on the Internet!
