Tech News: Call of Duty: Warzone gives Nvidia GPUs another advantage with DLSS reportedly to come this week.
Call of Duty: Warzone will receive DLSS support later this week, according to an Nvidia newsletter that appeared on Twitter. Wccftech mocked that Leonardo Leal tweeted that Nvidia’s latest weekly newsletter marks the full launch of Nvidia Reflex for Overwatch, but also mentions in the subject that DLSS will be out for Warzone on Thursday, April 22.
@NVIDIAGeForce I received this week’s GeForce newsletter from you guys with this text “Warzone DLSS launch on 4/22” in the subject, but I can’t find any news about it on the website, just this text in the email. It’s true? #NVIDIAGeForce #dlss #Warzone pic.twitter.com/wVGrrf0yo2

Take it with some caution until we officially hear from Nvidia, of course – there are no official announcements anywhere else or any other indication except for this alleged mention. However, in January we knew that Call of Duty: Warzone would receive DLSS support (at the same time it was announced that the feature would also be coming to Outriders).
We recently mentioned that Nvidia Reflex will be available for Overwatch, and as you may know, latency reduction technology is already available for Warzone (in fact, it was introduced last September). So those with an Nvidia GPU will not only get the benefit of reduced input lag, but also an increase in frame rate via DLSS (it’s one of Nvidia’s best features on the graphics front and something AMD is unrivaled for, at least not yet. , although Team Red is working on it).
DLSS essentially boosts the resolution, so you can, for example, run at what looks like 4K, or close to it, while requiring 1440p from your GPU, giving you much faster frame rates than 4K (without much difference to the image, at least that’s the theory – and the technology generally works very well).
An increasing number of PC games support DLSS and many more are coming, one way or another. If you’re interested, we’ve put together a list of the best DLSS games, which is definitely worth a look.
