Microsoft Flight Simulator will be getting DLSS support later this year, Asobo Studio has confirmed. The support for DLSS will arrive via an update.

Nvidia's DLSS is an AI-powered rendering technology that uses deep learning neural network to boosts frame rates and generate sharp images in real time. It provides performance headroom to maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolution.

The technique works by rendering the game at a lower base resolution and then upscaling the generated graphics using AI. This results in a high resolution equivalent that is comparable to the native rendition, but with the added benefit of reducing the impact on frame rates. DLSS is powered by dedicated AI processors on RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores.

DLSS support for Microsoft Flight Simulator will be introduced for the game's DirectX 12 mode later this year. It will give players more options to fine-tune the already demanding title to run more smoothly while, at the same time, still experience high quality visuals. Compatible hardware will be required to make use of the technology.

Support for DLSS is not the only new feature the studio is planning on introducing. Various free surprise add-ons, like the Nordics content update from last year, improved simulations, 3rd party aircrafts and performance improvements are all part of the game's evolving road map.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is available for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
