Nvidia's exclusive DLSS feature could be coming to Dice's Battlefield V pretty soon. When combined with RTX Ray Tracing, Deep Learning Supersampling will bring improvements to Battlefield V's overall performance on all RTX series cards.

Deep Learning Supersampling or DLSS is Nvidia's new, exclusive feature for RTX cards owners and it's one of the alternatives for classic anti-aliasing technique.

Nvidia says that DLSS requires "less input info while avoiding the algorithmic difficulties such techniques face with transparency and other complex scene elements," which simply means that DLSS is more efficient and resource-friendly technique than traditional anti-aliasing methods. It doesn't necessarily look better than other methods, it just does the job faster leaving more power for other purposes.

Battlefield V will soon get support for new exclusive Nvidia feature. This info is coming from RTX 2060 slides which revealed some performance numbers for Ray Tracing and DLSS combined.

Players will be able to turn on both features and still get high framerates even on RTX 2060 which is set for reveal at CES 2019. Battlefield V will run at 88 FPS with both RTX and DLSS enabled, and only on 64 FPS when RTX is on but without DLSS. The game was tested on a 1080p monitor as RTX 2060 is Nvidia's sweet spot for the most used resolution.

If these numbers are correct, Nvidia and Dice did a great job to further optimise the new features for Battlefield V. Back in November 2018, RTX suffered a messy launch with low framerate and disappointing performance overall even on the most powerful cards. 

Now, it seems that almost everyone with RTX cards will be able to enjoy the game on high framerate. Unfortunately, Nvidia are yet to officially confirm the info but it's possible that we'll hear more about the DLSS support for Battlefield V on CES 2019. 

Dice's WW2 shooter will follow Final Fantasy XV, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Hitman 2 which are the only titles with DLSS support at the moment. Additionally, Metro: Exodus, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and MechWarrior 5 will also feature Nvidia's latest anti-aliasing technology.
