Microsoft Flight Simulator: more than 100 FPS with Ray Tracing thanks to DLSS 3!

Nvidia unveiled its new graphics cards yesterday which should delight PC gamers who follow us. The 4090 and 4080 are the 3rd generation of RTX cards and promise to be, coupled with the new version of DLSS, extremely powerful!

New graphics cards and DLSS 3.0

During this event, several games were presented to demonstrate the capabilities of these new cards, and we were able to see Microsoft Flight Simulator running at more than 100 FPS with Ray Tracing Activated.

It is thanks to the new version of DLSS, DLSS 3, that it is possible to reach this level of performance on hyper-demanding games such as Asobo’s flight simulator or Cyberpunk 2077. The new iteration of Deep Nvidia’s Learning Super Sampling stands out from DLSS 2.0 by generating images this time, and no longer pixels.

Ada launches DLSS 3 and adds next-generation AI-powered multi-frame optics that deliver high-quality images, not just pixels. DLSS 3 combines DLSS Super Resolution, DLSS image generation, and NVIDIA Reflex technology to reconstruct 7/8ths of displayed pixels, significantly accelerating performance.

Some games use the CPU frequently, which limits the benefits of graphics cards and Super Resolution technologies. DLSS 3 runs on GPUs, bypassing CPU innovation bottlenecks and accelerating frame rates. In Microsoft Flight Simulator, where the entire planet is displayed at 1:1 scale, DLSS 3 doubles the graphics performance, providing flight simulation enthusiasts with a significantly improved gaming experience.

As we can see below, the framerate is doubled thanks to DLSS 3 with the added bonus of activating Ray Tracing effects in-game.

Recall that the RTX 4090 will be launched on October 12 at a price of €1949, while the RTX 4080 16 GB and 12 GB will arrive in November at €1469 and €1099.
