Here are all the confirmed ray tracing and DLSS games so far

Get your RTX and RDNA 2 graphics cards at the ready

The number of games with ray tracing and/or Nvidia DLSS support continues to tick upwards. Hitman 3 recently added both, balancing out some very pretty (if hardware-hungry) ray-traced reflection effects with the performance massaging power of DLSS upscaling. The Cycle: Frontier also launched with DLSS, so anyone with one of the best graphics cards from Nvidia’s RTX stable can get a tasty frames-per-second bonus in Yager’s survival shooter.

Ray tracing doesn’t need an Nvidia GPU specifically – several of AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 cards are powerful enough to handle it, and Intel’s upcoming Arc GPUs will support it as well. AMD also has upscaling tech of its own, FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), which now has a much-improved 2.0 version. Sadly, FSR 2.0 is currently only available in a handful of games, not the dozens and dozens that DLSS is.

You can find the full list below, along with all the games that can be polished up with some finely traced rays. As always, you can expect both lists to keep growing, either as new games are announced with these features or as developers add them post-release.

DLSS games you can play right now:

Thankfully, the number of games that support Nvidia's DLSS tech is much larger than the number of ray tracing games right now - which is excellent news for Nvidia RTX card owners looking to squeeze some extra frames out of their new GPU. Unlike ray tracing, these games do require the use of an Nvidia RTX card, as DLSS is a proprietary technology exclusive to Nvidia. It's an AI-powered upscaling technology that helps to boost performance at higher resolutions (particularly when you've got ray tracing enabled), and many of today's big ray tracing games such as Watch Dogs Legion simply aren't playable without it. Without further ado, then, here are all the Nvidia DLSS games you can currently play right now:

  • Alan Wake Remastered
  • Amid Evil
  • Anatomy of Fear

The introduction of DLSS 2.0 in games such as Death Stranding marked a real turning point for Nvidia's performance-boosting upscaling tech. Whereas previous DLSS games looked noticeably blurry with DLSS enabled, DLSS 2.0 could often look indistinguishable from a game's native resolution. The latest version is DLSS 2.4, which reduces ghosting and further improves rendering of fast-moving objects.

There are more DLSS games on the way, too. DLSS has now been integrated into both the Unreal Engine and Unity game-making tools now, so it should be much easier for developers to start adding in support for it.

That said, several games Nvidia have announced over the past few years still haven't received their intended DLSS support yet, and consequently I've removed some of the titles that were previously included on this list, as even Nvidia seem to have forgotten about them in their most recent DLSS announcements. Instead, the games below are definitely confirmed to be getting DLSS support, based on the most recent information available to us.

DLSS games on the way:

  • A Plague Tale: Requiem
  • Atomic Heart
  • Black Myth: Wukong
  • Boundary
  • Dying: 1983
  • F1 22
  • GRIT
  • LEAP (available now in early access)
  • Loopmancer
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • Midnight Ghost Hunt (available now in early access)
  • Ratten Reich
  • SCP: Pandemic (available now in early access)
  • Super People
  • Synced: Off-Planet
  • System Shock (available now in the demo)
  • The Anacrusis (available now in early access)
  • The Day Before
