Intel XeSS Technology: Intel Xe Super Sampling in 20 Games

Intel confirms support for its AI-assisted DLSS competitor XeSS, which also runs on AMD and Nvidia’s current GPU generation, for the first 20 games. It supports Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Ghostwire Tokyo, Gotham Knights, and Death Stranding, among others.

Intel talks extensively about XeSS

As part of the “Intel XeSS Technology Deep Dive”, an event of approximately 30 minutes, the manufacturer, in the person of Tom Petersen and Ryan Shrout, will go into detail about the internal AI upsampling and confirm the first 20 games that have been released. based on the feature set of Intel XeSS (more details) can fall back.

Thanks to the XeSS software stack, 20 games also run on GPUs from AMD and Nvidia. In addition to the aforementioned titles, Shadow of The Tomb Raider and Dolmen, the first game advertised with XeSS support, are also officially supported.

The Settlers, so far a single beta debacle, should also be able to offer Intel Xe Super Sampling. Modern Warfare II will be released on October 28, otherwise, there is no information about the launch of XeSS. The manufacturer reaffirms the following 20 titles in the video for the Deep Dive on Intel XeSS:

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
  • Armageddon
  • Ghostwrite Tokyo
  • Vampire Blood Hunt
  • Ghostbusters Ghosts Unleashed
  • Naraka Bladepoint
  • Great people
  • Gotham Knights
  • DioField Chronicles
  • dolmens
  • Chivalry II
  • redoubt II
  • The Settlers
  • Death Stranding: Director’s Cut
  • The Rift Breaker
  • Hitman III
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Anvil Vault Breakers

According to Tom Petersen and Ryan Shrout, more games with XeSS support will be released “in the coming months”.

Intel XeSS can double the FPS

At best, in this case, the XeSS Performance mode in Ghostwire Tokyo with 1440p, max details, and ray tracing, Intel’s AI upsampling should be able to more than double the FPS numbers. It goes from the previous 25 FPS to 53 FPS, as Intel confirms in its manufacturer benchmarks.

Intel XeSS – manufacturer measurements on an Intel Arc A770 (Image: Intel) In XeSS Balanced Mode, the frames per second increase ranges between approximately 25 and 75 percent. The basis for the manufacturer’s measurements was the top-of-the-line model of the first generation Intel Xe HPG (“Alchemist”), the unreleased Intel Arc A770, which should appear “later in the year”.

No sign of Arc A770, A750 and A580

While the Intel Arc A380 (test), which was previously available exclusively in China, has now also appeared in the US for USD 140, there is still no trace of the two top models with the ACM-G10 and the Arc A580 positioned below. The mobile version Arc A730M will be launched in September, also in Germany.

3DMark gets a XeSS test

Underwriters Laboratories’ benchmark 3DMark (UL) will receive a custom Intel XeSS feature test designed to demonstrate and measure the performance of AI upsampling technology. Intel also did a first test run here with an Arc A770 with 4,096 shaders, which according to the screenshots worked at 2,100 to 2,200 MHz.
