We already knew that Intel is planning to enter the GPU market and take on AMD and Nvidia. And today, the CPU maker shared new information about its efforts in this new market, specifically more information about its supersampling technology as part of its CES 2022 announcements.
As announced in August, Intel Arc graphics will include things like hardware-based ray tracing and Xe Super Sampling Tech (XeSS). XeSS, like AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), allow GPUs that support one of the three that allow several miles from your PC rigs without working harder.
Intel also confirmed XeSS support on its upcoming GPUs, and you’ll get better performance from PCs equipped with an Intel Arc series GPU and a compatible Intel Core CPU, such as the recently released Alder Lake (12th generation) processors .
Death Stranding Director’s Cut Screenshots
Prior to the launch of Intel’s first generation Arc GPUs, the company also shared information on upcoming support for its XeSS supersampling technology. Intel confirmed that Death Stranding Director’s Cut for PC will be among the first games to support the technology. Several studios, including Ubisoft, IO Interactive, 505 Games, Kojima Productions and PUBG Studios, have also committed to integrating supersampling technology into their games.
Here is a complete list of each study Intel has announced will support XeSS:
- Kojima Productions
- 505 games
- Code masters
- PUBG Studios
- IO Interactive
- EXOR Studios
- Massive work study
- Wonder People
Intel has not yet released information on when the Arc series of graphics cards will launch, but the first generation codenamed “Alchemist” will launch sometime early this year. The company is also playing the long game here, as last year it confirmed that the Arc series will span “several hardware generations”, with the next three generations codenamed “Battlemage”, “Celestial” and “Druid.”
