It’s time for another, more detailed, look at the so-called up-scaling techniques. We had already looked at some performance measurements and graphical details in the game Necromunda Hired Gun on the topic of NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR. Today we’re taking a closer look at the Marvel’s Avengers game. We’ll do the whole thing in part 1 exclusively with the NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 FE. Performance gains and graphic losses are on the menu today. If you haven’t read the other articles on DLSS and FSR yet, you can find them here: click or there!
As always, the test system comes first so that everyone can rank it or even retest it. Operationalizing is what the scientist calls it!

I tested on the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QM, in both 1440p and 1080p. The PG279QM’s extremely good 240 Hz IPS panel was also pushed to its refresh rate limits here thanks to the NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 FE. After all, that’s what this monitor was made for. But before we dive deeper into the DLSS and FSR world, I’d like to briefly show you and explain how and where I tested in this game. I have a video for you, which shows you my benchmark run.
As you can see in the video, this is how each test was conducted with FSR and DLSS (at the different levels). Spoiler: also the other graphics cards down to the Geforce GTX 1060 6GB from ZOTAC, but those will come in the next article. Be patient for a few more days. The next video shows you my settings that I used in the game.
There, now we’ve got that cleared up. No, these settings were not adjusted in the entire test! Only the FSR and DLSS stages have been enabled and disabled, respectively. Long story, so let’s start with the performance gains. Next page!
