Most current headlines masking upscaling expertise on PC are inclined to deal with FidelityFX Super Resolution or Deep Learning Super Sampling. That’s as a result of, in the interim, AMD and Nvidia’s choices have had extra time and publicity. As Intel’s personal resolution continues to mount help, Dolmen is the newest title introduced to make the most of XeSS.

Intel XeSS is the closest competitor within the PC house to Nvidia’s DLSS as a result of, not like AMD, Intel additionally makes use of machine studying expertise. In fundamental phrases, synthetic intelligence makes an attempt to reconstruct a picture from a decrease decision enter into the next decision output. This synthetic intelligence attracts from a neural community that’s continuously bettering and being fed info for extra correct outcomes.

Infamously, Nvidia’s DLSS expertise hinges upon the tensor cores in its RTX line of GPUs to speed up efficiency. This means different graphics playing cards are unable to make the most of DLSS in any respect. Luckily, Intel XeSS is taking a extra platform-agnostic strategy. While Intel’s Arc line of GPUs include particular {hardware} acceleration for XeSS, different GPU distributors could make use of it albeit at a further efficiency value.

For the time being, Dolmen additionally joins Hitman III, Rift Breaker, Grit, Super People, Grid Legends, and Death Stranding: Director’s Cut as the one XeSS supported titles.
