The new cards will be powered by Ada Lovelace, the latest generation of RTX tech, which will substantially improve ray traced lighting in games thanks to the use of DLSS 3. NVIDIA stated that DLSS 3 (or Deep Learning Super Sampling) is an AI-powered performance multiplier that can essentially quadruple the performance of brute-force rendering. The tech will be coming to game engines such as Unity and Unreal Engine.
