Anthem joins NVIDIA at CES to show off never-before-seen Anthem gameplay powered by the Deep Learning Super-sampling (DLSS) technology of NVIDIA RTX graphic cards.
With just a month until Anthem is released, the team at Bioware decided to show off Anthem once more, this time utilising Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super-sampling (DLSS) technology. NVIDIA NGX is a new deep learning powered technology stack bringing AI-based features that accelerate and enhance graphics, photos imaging and video processing directly into applications. NVIDIA NGX features utilize Tensor Cores to maximize the efficiency of their operation, and require an RTX-capable GPU. The NGX SDK makes it easy for developers to integrate AI features into their application with pre-trained networks.
I have to say, that Deep Learning Super-sampling (DLSS) technology really makes Anthem visuals pop. Of course, you need that RTX graphics card to fully make use of this feature, but the fact that graphics in games can still get pushed to these types of limits is a feat to behold for sure. I mean, just how much realism is realistically possible with games at this point. Could we truly reach a point in which we’ll get games that genuinely look like real life? Personally, I feel like it could be possible, and we may see it sooner that we expect. However, what I found interesting is that Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang believes, and that is that the Moore’s Law, the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years is finished.
According to him:
“Moore’s Law used to grow at 10x every five years [and] 100x every 10 years,” Huang said during a Q&A panel with a small group of reporters and analysts at CES 2019. “Right now Moore’s Law is growing a few percent every year. Every 10 years maybe only 2s. … So Moore’s Law has finished.”
Whether this is true remains to be seen. Either way, I’m impressed with Anthem, even though it’s EA who’s unfortunately publishing the game. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think?
