This update also introduces advanced upscaling solutions, including Nvidia's DLSS, AMD's FSR, Intel's XeSS, and MetalFX for macOS. These technologies enable the game to render at lower resolutions and upscale to the desired output, providing higher framerates and smoother gameplay, even in the most intense battles. 

Raytracing is another stunning feature of Carbon 1.0, offering sharper and more accurate shadows. This technology leverages the dedicated hardware of your graphics card, delivering exceptional visual fidelity and enhanced performance, making every moment in New Eden look spectacular.
