NVIDIA DLSS 2.2 was quietly released in Rainbow Six Siege a few days ago. While NVIDIA boasted of the significant performance gains that GeForce RTX users would notice in-game, it didn’t really talk about DLSS upgrades. However, several users on Reddit (and elsewhere) report that this is the best implementation yet of the already excellent Deep Learning Super Sampling image reconstruction technique, which produces a sharp image that is also virtually free of ghosting or artifacts. More interestingly, they have had success in applying the new DLSS 2.2 (220.127.116.11 to be exact) dll file on other games that support DLSS such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Nioh 2, No Man’s Sky , death stranding, Cyberpunk 2077, Metro Exodus, Necromunda: Rented Gun. Not only did this work, it even corrected the minor issues that DLSS 2.1 still had in those titles.
Death Stranding is one of the most egregious cases as in the current version of the game you can easily notice dark trails caused by ghosting. DLSS 2.2 significantly improves on this problem, as you can see in the image comparison grabbed by Beyond 3D user dorf.
The Beyond3D user even did a basic test in the Unreal Engine 4 editor. According to him, drawing a line was used to produce noticeable ghosts with earlier DLSS versions, as you can see in the first image below. Manually updating the .dll file to DLSS 2.2 seems to have fixed it.
Some reports also mention improved performance in select games, although there just isn’t enough data to back up this claim yet.
We’ve reached out to NVIDIA to learn more about the tweaks made for DLSS 2.2 and will update this story if we hear back. However, we have a hunch that there will be an official reveal in the coming days as AMD is preparing its own FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) to launch next Tuesday with the following lineup: 22 Racing Series, Anno 1800, Evil Genius 2, Godfall, Kingshunt, Terminator Resistance and The Riftbreaker.
If you want to test DLSS 2.2 yourself in games other than Rainbow Six Siege, you can download the nvngx.dll file here and then manually replace it in your desired game. In the event that something goes wrong, you can always force an integrity check for the files through the game’s store/launcher, which should revert the file back to its original.
