How to use NVIDIA DLSS in Warzone Pacific

What is NVIDIA DLSS in Warzone?

NVIDIA’s DLSS (or Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology allows gamers with RTX graphics to see much higher FPS when playing Vanguard and Warzone at high resolutions.

What DLSS does is set your game to a lower resolution, thus increasing performance, but giving the appearance of high resolution. It’s the perfect combination of visuals and performance.

NVIDIA says you can see a Increased FPS up to 70% while playing Warzone at 4K.

How to Enable NVIDIA DLSS in Warzone

If you have an NVIDIA GPU, enabling DLSS is simple in Warzone. You can find it in the Post-processing effects your graphics settings tab.

From here you can set DLSS to either Ultra-performance, Performance, BalanceWhere Quality.

If you see FPS drops in Caldera, we recommend setting it to Ultra Performance or Performance. If you have a 30-series graphics card, Balanced is a great compromise.


Best Warzone graphics settings for low-end hardware

For a smooth experience, you want Warzone to stay above 60 FPS. However, you may notice that some Caldera pockets will cause FPS drops. If you have an older graphics card such as the NVIDIA 1000 series, you’ll want to use the graphics settings below to make Warzone as smooth and enjoyable to play as possible.
