Hi everyone, I have recently started playing metro exodus enhanced edition and I was pretty disappointed with the graphics when I set everything to max at my native resolution 1080p. This was without DLSS or VRS so it should look the best, or at least that's what I thought.

So I went to enable DSR to upscale my resolution to 4k and enabled DLSS to see if there are any big differences. Well anyway I found the results pretty interesting so I've decided to share them.

Some blur for 4k dlss. Like some spots seem to have lens where it's out of focus...

Did anyone do a reshade comparison, downsampling and use a sharpening filter?

Personally i think 4K DLSS looks a lot sharper especially in the distance where the anti-aliasing effect looks the most obvious. Take a look at the 2nd scene where the bald tree in the middle looks like it has grown more branches in the 4k shot.

Does DLSS Quality just run it as close as possible to set resolution? If so, how is it that 4K DLSS achieves a better avg frame rate than 1080p?

Honestly I have no idea. DLSS Quality, Balanced and Performance should be rendering at 1447p, 1253p and 1080p respectively. Technically it should still have lower avg FPS than 1080p but the numbers dont seem to add up. The fact that those screenshots are at 4k resolution and the fact that it does indeed look better than the 1080p ones don't lie. So I really have no clue why it also runs better than 1080p native.
