NVIDIA DLSS going open source thanks to hackers?
NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling source code has allegedly been leaked by the attackers on the company’s servers.
NVIDIA was reluctant to make their DLSS proprietary technology open source, and that’s even despite AMD FSR and Intel XeSS either doing so or planning to go this way. The company did make some progress on allowing more developers to participate in the program but has never released a source code for its technology.
NVIDIA DLSS is often considered superior to any other upscaling technologies mainly because it relies on artificial intelligence accelerated cores (Tensors). The company has never made this technology available for its competitors, nor provided a solution for unsupported hardware.
The hackers that infiltrated NVIDIA servers have now released a source code for DLSS, as confirmed by TechPowerUP. Obviously, no 3rd-party should use this code for their own projects, but this may lead to one of NVIDIA’s biggest software achievements and probably millions of dollars wasted because the code is no longer a secret.
Please note, we have not been able to independently confirm this leak. Additionally, we do not encourage anyone to download the leaked code for legal and security reasons.
