    One of the most popular games to release in the summer of 2023 is Diablo IV from Blizzard Entertainment.  This is the fourth installment in the Diablo franchise and the third game in the series that expanded on the Diablo storyline and lore.

    As part of the game launch Dennis did a performance evaluation across four graphics cards to test the performance gain you could expect by enabling DLSS.  Of course, you need to be running a NVIDIA RTX graphics card and then go into the game settings to enable DLSS.  From there, you’ll find several levels of DLSS that can be applied including changing many of the graphical presets to raise and lower the overall image quality settings.

    Be sure to check out the article on Hardware Asylum (link below) and share your thoughts on if DLSS is actually needed in a game like Diablo IV.

    As a bonus for those of you who have not played Diablo the duo discuss the specifics when it comes to the different gameplay options and what makes Diablo fun and interesting to play.
