3DMark announced this week its new availability Intel XeSS Benchmarking feature, available as a free update to 3DMark Advanced Edition for users who have purchased 3DMark After January 8, 2019. To run the Intel XeSS feature test, you must have a system equipped with a GPU that supports Intel XeSS and Microsoft DirectX ray tracing Tier 1.1. XeSS Compatible GPUs It includes Intel Arc GPUs, as well as AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs with Shader Model 6.4 support. Together with the operating system in the form of Windows 11 or Windows 10 64-bit, version 20H2 or later.
If you haven’t already purchased a copy of the Advanced Edition, it is available for purchase on Steam or directly from the UL Benchmarks website.
The test renders a scene based on the 3DMark Port Royal benchmark twice to show the effect of XeSS on performance and image quality. The first run measures baseline performance by rendering the scene using Temporal Anti-aliasing (TAA) at the output resolution. The second run displays the scene at a lower resolution and then uses the selected XeSS mode to upgrade Frames to output resolution. The results screen shows you the average frame rate from each run and the difference in performance expressed in percentage.”
“XeSS (Xe Super Sampling) is a new graphics technology from Intel that uses AI-enhanced upscaling to improve performance while maintaining high image resolution. XeSS renders each frame at a lower resolution to boost performance and then uses AI upscaling to create frames at the target output resolution.”
