According to reports, DLSS 3 is powered by the new fourth-generation Tensor Core and GeForce RTX 40 series GPU's new optical flow accelerator, is the latest version of NVIDIA's deep learning super-sampling technology, and has a groundbreaking optical multi-frame generation function.

According to official Nvidia data, running the latest version of Cyberpunk 2077, the RTX 4090 will have more than four times the frame rate of the RTX 3090 Ti, and the RTX 4080 16GB will have more than three times the frame rate of the RTX 3080 Ti.
In addition, Bryan Catanzaro, vice president of applied deep learning research at NVIDIA, said that DLSS 3 relies on an optical flow accelerator, which has been significantly improved in Ada over Ampere, so the current version is only available for the RTX 40 series. With additional research and engineering, they could get this technology to work on RTX 20/30 series graphics cards, but probably not very well.
