Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the latest addition to the Star Wars franchise, has been causing a stir amongst gamers. While the game has been receiving positive feedback from critics and console players, the PC community has been left feeling disappointed with its performance. Despite using the latest Nvidia graphics cards, many PC players have reported experiencing performance issues, resulting in a wave of negative reviews.
However, a YouTuber by the name of PureDark may have found a solution to this problem. In a video uploaded recently, PureDark demonstrated the use of Nvidia's DLSS Frame Generation tool to upscale the game's resolution and improve performance. The results were impressive, with the framerate jumping from the high 40s to the mid-90s, resulting in much smoother gameplay. Although the mod is currently only being showcased and not yet available for all to use, it's likely that someone will make it accessible soon.
Understanding DLSS: What is it, and How Does it Work?
For those who are not familiar with DLSS, it's an upscaling algorithm created by Nvidia. The Deep Learning Super Sampling technique works by redrawing the pixels on the screen, creating an artificial higher resolution. This allows games to run at higher resolutions, such as 1440p, without putting additional strain on the system's hardware. The latest version of this technology, DLSS 3, was released in 2022.
Jedi Survivor vs. Fallen Order
Despite the backlash from the PC community, Jedi Survivor is still more popular than its predecessor, Star Wars: Fallen Order, which was released in 2019. The game has received mixed reviews on Steam, but the overall sentiment seems to be improving, with the rating moving up from “Mostly Negative” to “Mixed.”
