Nvidia DLSS 2 and Reflex will be onboard for the launch of the Diablo 4 beta, which will allow players to smash their way through the prologue and the first act of the world of Sanctuary from March 17th to 19th. According to Blizzard, Nvidia DLSS 3 with frame generation should be available in time for the start of the action role-playing game on June 6, while real-time ray tracing should only be integrated “at some point” later.

Nvidia DLSS 3 should be ready for release
As Blizzard and Nvidia have already officially announced, DLSS 3 will only be integrated into the dark action role-playing game on June 6th. The developers would thus also take into account the system requirements of the final version, which are likely to be (significantly) higher than assumed.
Diablo 4 Beta: System requirements should be (significantly) higher
The supposedly low system requirements for the Diablo 4 beta come at the cost of graphics limitations. So the minimum requirements only apply to 1080p “native” resolution, 720p “rendered” resolution and the minimum graphics settings at 30 frames per second.
Diablo 4 will also get ray tracing “eventually”.
