To check out the gaming performance difference between the DLSS 3 and DLSS 2, we are testing out the RTX 4090 vs RTX 3090Ti DLSS.
Whenever any new GPU is released, Nvidia adds something more unique to them. These include enhanced graphics, performance, visuals, better fps, and other qualities. With the latest Nvidia RTX technologies, they are also working in the field of AI. DLSS was a massive success with their last generation of Graphics cards, and the all-new DLSS 3.0 is ready to set records again.
This year, Nvidia has upgraded their older DLSS 2 to the newer and faster DLSS 3. Nvidia has promised that their new technology will be twice or thrice faster than the previous one. To check their claims on this one, we tested out both GPUs, 4090 and 3090ti, which feature DLSS 3.0 and 2.0, respectively. This test will help us understand how much of a difference DLSS 3 makes compared to DLSS 2.
Now without further delay, let’s check out Nvidia’s latest DLSS vs the older DLSS Gaming Performance on the latest-gen games which support the Nvidia DLSS technology.

Nvidia DLSS 3.0 RTX 4090 vs DLSS 2.0 RTX 3090Ti Gaming Benchmark outcome
Here is the performance benchmark for the Nvidia DLSS 3.0 vs DLSS 2.0 when tested with the latest games!
|GAME NAME vs DLSS VERSION||DLSS 2.0||DLSS 3.0|
|A Plague Tale Requiem||135 fps avg||173 fps avg|
|Cyberpunk 2077||84 fps avg||120 fps avg|
|Enemies (Unity Demo)||30 fps avg||95 fps avg|
|Lyra (UE5 Demo)||73 fps avg||133 fps avg|
|Microsoft Flight Simulator||73 fps avg||165 fps avg|
|F1 2022||64 fps avg||172 fps avg|
|God of War||98 fps avg||203 fps avg|
Nvidia DLSS 3.0 vs DLSS 2.0 Final Verdict
From the above list, we can see a considerable fps difference in the experiment. The DLSS 3.0 performance is double that of the previous-gen DLSS 2.0 technology. You can see that every latest gen or even under-development game provides extra fps boot for smoothing.
Although the DLSS 3, on some occasions, is increasing the game latency and the response time to generate the graphics is too long, as recently complained on some of the forums. Hopefully, Nvidia will resolve this issue with a new update. These issues affect if you are playing multiplayer. Other than that, if the single-player games are concerned, shifting from the DLSS 2 to DLSS 3 can be a significant upgrade, even if you are gaming on 4K!
So this was all about Nvidia DLSS 3.0 vs DLSS 2.0. If you have anything to add, feel free to comment down below.
