DLSS3 Lock Bypassed on RTX2070


Recommended Posts


The user says that he was able to bypass the DLSS 3 lock on older GeForce RTX cards by adding a config file to remove the VRAM overhead in Cyberpunk. He ran the game at 1440p with HDR off & DLSS set to balanced mode. He was also able to select the Frame Generation tab under the Ultra ray tracing preset.

Without frame generation, his NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 gets around 35-40 FPS but with DLSS 3 frame generation enabled, the user got 80 FPS. That's almost twice or a bigger performance jump. The user did use a different DLSS preset (Balanced) to test frame generation but still, switching from quality to balanced preset even in DLSS 2 won't net you a 2x gain.


NVIDIA recently introduced its new DLSS 3 technology that adds a new feature known as Frame Generation on supported GPUs.


If a 2070 can do it, the 3000 series must be able to do it pretty well. No surprise that Nvidia would lock this feature out to push their $1000+ 4000 series GPUs. 


Perhaps this also means frame generation isn't that hard to do on a modern GPU, so maybe we'll see different version of it from other teams in the future.

  • UltraMega changed the title to DLSS3 Lock Bypassed on RTX2070

I was always of the mind that someone would eventually bypass what is an arbitrary driver lock out. Would be interesting to see if a steady modified set of drivers to do this was made available...or the method to do so was easy enough.
