It seems that good things keep on coming to No Man’s Sky as developer Hello Games recently announced an upcoming update with support for Nvidia’s DLSS technology.

The update in question will allow players to enable DLSS in the game’s original mode, as well as in VR mode.

What is DLSS?

DLSS is an Nvidia-exclusive technology that helps improve graphical quality without sacrificing performance. This is possible using AI machine learning to upscale low-resolution images.

Its implementation to No Man’s Sky would mean that you can scale the game’s resolution to 4K with minimal to no loss in overall performance. Nvidia said that with DLSS, the game's performance may be boosted by up to 70% at 4K. If true, it should translate to better and smoother gameplay even at that display resolution.

Nvidia released a video showcasing DLSS technology in full display:

In the video, you will see the performance of the game with 4K DLSS enabled. They used a machine with AMD Ryzen 5900X CPU, 32 GB of RAM, and graphics cards that support the company’s proprietary technology.


For you to enable this feature, you must meet certain requirements. First, you will need to wait for the update to get the DLSS support.

Second, your rig must have the supported Nvidia GPUs. Currently, only the 2000 Series (RTX 2060, 2070, 2080, 2080 Super, 2080Ti) and the 3000 series (RTX 3060, 3060Ti, 3070, 3080, 3080) cards support the technology. So, if you have any of these GPUs, you should be good to go.

Also, don't forget to download the latest GPU driver from Nvidia to ensure maximum compatibility and features.

Although the introduction of DLSS in the game is appreciated, there is still no definitive date of its implementation at the time of this writing.

Hello Games’ managing director Sean Murray announced in a tweet that the support for the said feature is coming soon.
