Intel enhances XeSS upscaling to provide improved frame rates for Arc GPUs, achieving up to a 30% increase in speed and enhanced image quality.

Intel has unveiled a new version of its XeSS upscaling technology that competes with Nvidia’s DLSS and AMD’s FSR in enhancing frame rates for PC gaming. The latest XeSS 1.3 is currently in preview testing, showing significant performance improvements compared to previous versions.

According to Intel, on a system featuring an Arc A750 GPU, Diablo 4 at 1440p resolution experienced a remarkable increase in frames per second. Without XeSS, the game ran at 37 fps, which surged to 71 fps with XeSS, and further improved to 91 fps with XeSS 1.3, showcasing a nearly 30% boost in performance. Other games also demonstrated enhancements, averaging around a 10% increase in fps.

Intel also showcased integrated graphics on the Arc GPU within an Intel Core Ultra processor, achieving 8% more fps on average in games at 1080p with medium details using XeSS 1.3.

Improved Image Quality

XeSS 1.3 not only focuses on boosting frame rates but also on improving the image quality. Intel refined the upscaling technology to deliver enhanced detail in images, better anti-aliasing, and reduced ghosting artifacts. This advancement signifies a substantial step forward for XeSS, pushing Intel to further innovate in the upscaling technology realm to stay competitive against AMD and Nvidia.

Nvidia recently introduced DLSS 3.7 with similar enhancements, emphasizing reduced ghosting and improved temporal stability. On the other hand, AMD is rumored to be working on integrating AI into its FSR technology. Both Intel and Nvidia currently utilize hardware-accelerated AI cores to enhance their respective upscaling solutions, indicating the ongoing evolution and competition in this space.
