A deep dive into Intel's XeSS technology to see whether it's worth using on Nvidia and AMD hardware and how it competes against Nvidia's DLSS and AMD's FSR.
AMD set to upgrade Radeon GPUs to FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 soon, Radeon Super Resolution available today
Make no mistake, FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) is AMD's direct competitor to Nvidia's DLSS, a feature that's increasingly become a key selling point for GeForce graphics cards. It's AMD's turn to show what's it got.
Resolution scaling is a great option if you're looking to gain an additional 10-15% performance after tweaking settings. If you're playing at a high resolution like 4K, and you combine res scaling with image sharpening, the results are often very close to native.
Nvidia's latest major driver update brought with it several new features including performance enhancements, GPU integer scaling for retro games, a new ultra-low latency mode and perhaps the biggest addition: a new Freestyle Sharpening Filter to rival Radeon's RIS. Is Nvidia's new Freestyle better, and does it make DLSS completely obsolete?
