So Nvidia said they will keep training neruo network for better DLSS image quality and performance. Saw some thread over reddit claiming DLSS picture quality has improved after new patches. In your eyes which one of the following has DLSS on?

Would be nice for @W1zzard to revisit DLSS image quality after a while and see whether there are actual quality improvements as well as performance differences.

C

Though if this is taken from the recent update, perhaps also A is an option. It has sharpening artifacts all over the place. Need fullscreen zoom to see it, so its not a bad implementation in that case.

Gotta say, nice little blind test!

The vegetation detail is a good indication. Even on the update some small vegetation are all but wiped out.

On A is a lot of blurring and aliasing in comparison to B but they are fairly similar in quality. A looks like the same thing as B but with lower resolution and added slight blurring filter. C is obviously upscaling a.k.a. marketing name: DLSS.

and without pixel peeping to use a photographic term the average gamer would not be aware of any of it.. all he would see is higher frame rates..

I'm suprised to see A is DLSS on,though B is better on closer examination,it is a huge improvement.
C is obviously crap.

Nice one.

Yeah I had some trouble spotting it as well from the page but when you put it fullscreen its obvious. All outlines are notably 'thicker' looking, making the picture a bit cartoony as opposed to the fine lines of B. This happens simply because of sharpening, as it increases the contrast between different outlines. You can even see the snow light up a bit around the gun, for example. When in motion, that effect is very noticeable.
