PSO 2 New Genesis is getting a framerate bump, but only for NVIDIA users

Starting on February 9

There’s going to be a PSO 2 New Genesis framerate bump, but only if you have a GeForce RTX series graphics card with DLSS on.

Sega shared the news directly through Twitter, posting a comparison video between RTX and DLSS off, and RTX and DLSS on. The results are fairly distinct, with the former clocking in around 45-50 FPS consistently, and the latter hitting 60 FPS minimum at all times.

It begs the question: can Sega optimize the New Genesis framerate for everyone? I get that new tech is always going to yield better results, but the “default” option shouldn’t be that most of the userbase runs at below 60 FPS in a game from a major studio in 2022.

Either way, this is a start. Just recently New Genesis got its big Retem (desert) region update, and there’s more to come in 2022. New Genesis is growing both in terms of quality of life features and content, and at some point it’s going to hit critical mass for a lot of people.

The Retem region has been getting mixed reviews so far from the community, contending that while the location itself is varied from a layout and visual standpoint, the content part of the equation simply isn’t there yet. Having finished the Retem campaign in just under a day, I definitely see where they’re coming from.
