    Not heavily advertised/known feature. But a great one and the recent update for sharpening really impresses. Press Alt+F3 during game and play around but sharpening alone makes some games look much better at a very small FPS cost. Looks especially amazing in Division 2 ive found.

    Doesnt support every game.



    Screenshots/videos dont do it justice, give it a crack.

    DLSS = Does Look So Sharp :thumbup:

    I love the DLSS feature in Control, I think upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare should also support DLSS feature.. I'm gonna enable it for maximum fps ofc :)

    Only good implementation of DLSS so far is Control, rest are rubbish especially Metro.

    This looks way sharper then DLSS but only suits games you getting good FPS on as it actually lowers them by 3%

    Yes good shiny reflections but metro has it covered. Especially with its ray traced emissive lighting.



    Anyway we are off topic. Freestyle is this thread!

    Hmm that looks pretty good.. :)
    Do you think Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's gonna be better?

    Btw have you played with "Details" on Alt+F3? cos you can also change Sharpen in "Details" as well as Clarity and HDR Toning.

    Just read this and it's pretty awesome.. possibly the best NVidia Freestyle mod so far. :thumbup:
    "NVIDIA has confirmed it will be adding ReShade filters to GeForce drivers." - https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-to-add-reshade-filters-to-geforce-drivers

    More people might start using NVidia Freestyle soon, since most don't even know about it.
    I wouldn't mind playing Control with "Dark and Realistic" or "Whos Blue" Reshade mod. :)

    This is an excellent move by nvidia. When you start playing around with levels, sharpening, vibrance, etc, it can really punch up games. I also love my bloom in games (dragon age, mass effect, etc). So, when this comes out, it will be so damn awesome.

    EDIT: Didn't realise it already came out. Just updated my driver.

    Well, here is the issue with nvidia freestyle; it only works with 'supported games'. Reshade works with everything (most filters).

    But seriously, though. What's with the supported games only? What does that mean?

    Yeah, but reshade works without all that bs. So, what exactly is the selling point here?

    Cause freestyle is already really good, the sharpening especially. Now you can import reshade filters for 2 birds one stone all automated and per game profiles.

    I like that sharpening now works on all games too (via NVCP)

    Yep, sure. But it is only supported games that allow you to that, though. And not all games are supported. So, fine - freestyle is great and all, but I don't understand why reshade filters through freestyle have to be 'supported' and default reshade can just work. That's what I am not liking.

    Yeah I spose. But 700+ supported games, I am yet to find one that isn't. But the older you go I guess the issues arise.
