Rainbow Six Siege now officially support NVIDIA DLSS, the Deep Learning Super Sampling image reconstruction technique that aims to massively improve performance without sacrificing visual quality.
Anthony De Rochefort, 3D Programmer at Ubisoft, stated:
In Rainbow Six Siege, split-second reactions can be the difference between winning and losing. NVIDIA DLSS ensures that you’ve got maximum performance and image quality so you’ve always got victory in your sights.
According to NVIDIA, Rainbow Six Siege enjoys over 50% performance boost at 4K and max settings with the Performance Mode selected. In fact, as you can see in the benchmarks below, all GeForce RTX graphics cards are capable of surpassing 100 frames per second with those settings.
Do be warned that DLSS support in Rainbow Six Siege is only available when you're using the Vulkan API, first introduced to the game in early 2020 alongside Asynchronous Compute.
Take a look below at a comparison trailer shared by NVIDIA.
