Intel has shared a new video that demonstrates how its super sampling technology, XeSS, can upscale a 1080p image into a 4K one with arguably beautiful results. The game used in this demo is a beta build of EXOR Studios’ The Riftbreaker, a base-building survival game that was released on October 14, 2021. Viewers should ensure that the 4K stream is enabled to see what XeSS can supposedly do.
Intel on its XeSS technology:
XeSS (Xe Super Sampling) takes your gaming experience to the next level with AI-enhanced upscaling that enables an increased output resolution while maintaining high image fidelity at maximum performance. Designed with all gamers in mind, XeSS is unlocked to work on widely available hardware.
Machine learning helps synthesize images that are very close to the quality of native ultra-high-res rendering by reconstructing subpixel details from neighboring pixels, as well as motion-compensated previous frames. This reconstruction is performed by a neural network trained to deliver high performance and exceptional quality.
Intel’s XeSS super sampling technology will complement the company’s new Arc Alchemist graphics cards, which are slated for release sometime next year. XeSS is expected to also work on select NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.
