Ray Tracing and DLSS have been quite the craze for quite a few years now. Although a majority of people still don't have an RTX GPU, it's certain that in a few years, it will pretty much be the norm for most people.

So, what are Ray Tracing and DLSS?

Ray Tracing

Ray Tracing is a rendering technique used to create a 3D image by calculating how (virtual) light rays hit various surfaces. This method substitutes traditional lighting/illumination methods in games to make everything look more realistic. But it uses a lot more power in the process.

DLSS

DLSS, or Deep Learning Super Sampling, is an anti-aliasing method used by Nvidia in its RTX lineup of GPUs. It uses machine learning to upscale low res images to high res images for display on higher-resolution monitors and uses far lesser resources as compared to rendering in native resolution while providing near the same visual fidelity.
