Call of Duty: Warzone has now adopted the use of Nvidia's DLSS technology in its latest patch update for players with compatible hardware, having announced plans to use the feature during the Game On live stream feature back in January 2021.
DLSS stands for 'Deep Learning Super Sampling', which essentially upscales the resolution, giving you much faster frame-rates than running natively in 4K. This feature is also the saving grace for fans of raytracing, as DLSS can make up for the loss of frames when enabling demanding RTX graphics in games.
We're seeing a lot of games getting on board with DLSS, and for good reason given how successful it's been. The good news for gamers is that more are coming, and if you’re interested, we’ve compiled a roundup of the best DLSS-powered games which is well worth a look.

You should absolutely enable this feature
The performance of DLSS can vary from title to title, but in the case of Call Of Duty: Warzone, you can allegedly expect up to a 70% improvement on your framerate, which as any regular players of competitive first-person shooters will tell you, could give you the edge during a match.
This DLSS update is being added to other CoD games too, so you can also start boosting your performance in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign and Blacks Ops Cold War Zombies – though Nvidia hasn't yet published any benchmarks for those titles.
If you have any GeForce graphics card from the 20 series and up (identified with an "RTX" in the GPU name) then the DLSS boost will be available to you. VideoCardz (opens in new tab) reports that a few users have so far experienced artifacts and ghosting after enabling the feature, but this is early days and that is likely to be smoothed out.
