Gotham Knights – NVIDIA DLSS 2 vs AMD FSR 2.0 vs Intel XeSS comparison screenshots

Gotham Knights releases later today and as we’ve reported, its PC version is a mess. The game currently suffers from major I/O issues in the open-world area, which can be easily experienced while driving the batcycle. And, to be honest, that’s a shame because it’s one of the few games that support NVIDIA DLSS 2, AMD FSR 2.0 and Intel XeSS.

For these comparison screenshots, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3800Mhz and NVIDIA’s RTX 4090 Founders Edition. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, and the GeForce 522.25 driver.

As always, we set all of the upscaling techniques to quality mode. We also maxed out all of the in-game settings, and set our resolution to 4K.

Below you can find some comparison screenshots between AMD FSR 2.0 Quality (left), NVIDIA DLSS 2 Quality (middle) and Intel XeSS Quality (right).

As you can see, all of these upscaling techniques look almost the same. In order to find out any differences between them, we had to use ICAT and zoom in by 500%. And, let’s be honest here. If you need to zoom in by 500% to find out the differences, you won’t be able to tell them while playing the game.

As with most of our comparisons, NVIDIA DLSS 2 is once again the winner here. NVIDIA DLSS 2 provides the best image and the best performance. This is why our GPU usage is lower when using NVIDIA DLSS 2. AMD FSR 2.0 comes in second place as it looks sharper than Intel XeSS. It’s also worth noting that Intel’s XeSS can reconstruct some objects better than FSR 2.0. However, there are also other objects in which FSR 2.0 does a better job at reconstructing them.

All in all, NVIDIA RTX owners should stick to DLSS 2 Quality. Everyone else can use either FSR 2.0 or XeSS. Seriously, they look almost identical so it’s just a matter of personal preference.
