NVIDIA’s AI has already changed gaming, and it’s still just heating up

NVIDIA Pushing Boundaries with AI in Gaming

Ever since the launch of the GeForce RTX 20-Series GPUs with Tensor Cores, NVIDIA has been at the forefront of integrating AI into gaming. The use of AI in games has grown significantly, providing more features and enhancing the overall gaming experience. With the introduction of NVIDIA ACE technology, it is evident that NVIDIA is committed to making AI an essential component of gaming.

DLSS Revolutionizing Visuals

The journey into AI began with NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), which allows gamers to enjoy high-quality visuals without sacrificing frame rates. By using high-quality graphics as training data for AI, DLSS enables the Tensor Cores to upscale low-resolution gameplay efficiently. This technology is now elevating resolution and frame rates with the power of AI.

Enhancing Visuals with AI Tools

NVIDIA Freestyle and RTX Remix offer tools to enhance the visuals of games using AI. Freestyle enables users to apply filters and even convert rendering into HDR in real-time for non-HDR games, enhancing the visual experience. On the other hand, RTX Remix allows modders to convert in-game assets to higher-quality assets quickly, similar to what DLSS does for resolution.

Revolutionizing NPC Interactions with NVIDIA ACE

While DLSS, NVIDIA Freestyle, and RTX Remix focus on visual enhancements, NVIDIA ACE is set to transform how players interact with in-game NPCs. By leveraging AI tools, NVIDIA ACE brings a new level of dynamism to NPCs, increasing engagement levels for gamers throughout their gaming experience.

Riva speech and Audio2Face animation models within NVIDIA ACE enable seamless interaction between players and NPCs. Riva transcribes spoken prompts from players for the game, while AI-powered NPCs respond in natural language synced with facial animations using Audio2Face. Developers can utilize pretrained models and frameworks like NVIDIA NeMo to create language models powering NPCs’ actions and responses.

Staying Ahead with NVIDIA AI Decoded Series

Despite the complexities, AI is poised to play a significant role in the future of gaming, with NVIDIA ACE leading the charge. To keep up with the latest developments, NVIDIA offers the AI Decoded series, providing insights into the evolving intersection of gaming and AI.
