Intel has released a new video, showcasing its DLSS competitor, XeSS, in a brand new GDC 2022 tech demo. In this video, we get to see XeSS and how it fares against native 4K and native 1080p resolutions.
As Intel stated, this demo is running on an Intel Arc GPU (Codename Alchemist) at 4K resolution and is built using Unreal Engine with DX12 enabled.
This video is an excerpt from Intel’s GDC 2022 session: Intel Xe Super Sampling (XeSS)—an AI-based Upscaling for Real-Time Rendering.
Although there isn’t any ETA on when XeSS will become available, we do know that it will be vendor agnostic. As such, it will support GPUs from both AMD and NVIDIA. And, since AMD has announced FSR 2.0, it will be interesting to see how both XeSS and FSR will fare against NVIDIA’s DLSS.
Lastly, the first gaming studios that will support XeSS will be 505 Games, EXOR Studios, Fishlabs, Codemasters, Hashbane, IO Interactive, Illfonic, Kojima Productions, Massive Work Studio, PUBG Studios, Techland, Ubisoft and Wonder People.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
