XeSS Super Sampling
Revolutionize Your Resolution
XeSS (Xe Super Sampling) takes your gaming experience to the next level with AI-enhanced upscaling, enabling more performance with high image fidelity. Revel in ultra-high-definition visuals with high-performance, powered by hardware acceleration and an AI-based algorithm. Designed with all gamers in mind, XeSS is unlocked to work on widely available hardware.
Accelerate Your Frames, Accelerate Your Games
Go from zero to hero, casual to competitive, with different upscaling options ranging from maximum detail (ultra quality mode) to maximum speed (performance mode). Intel’s AI-based technology unlocks incredible performance for high octane gaming. Play faster than ever with XeSS1.
Seeing Is Believing
Dedicated machine learning hardware built into Intel® Arc™ graphics products, and AI algorithms enable our neural network to optimize image quality.
Available in the Latest Games and Game Engines
With many game studios in collaboration, we’re enabling XeSS across a broad range of titles.
See the first instance of XeSS in action on Unreal Engine 5 in Hashbane’s latest game Instinction:
How It Works
Machine learning helps synthesize images that are very close to the quality of native ultra-high-res rendering by reconstructing subpixel details from neighboring pixels, as well as motion-compensated previous frames. This reconstruction is performed by a neural network trained to deliver high performance and exceptional quality.
Open & Accessible
XeSS is implemented using open standards to ensure wide availability on many games and across a broad set of shipping hardware, from both Intel® and other GPU vendors2.
Additionally, the XeSS algorithm can leverage the DP4a and XMX hardware capabilities of Xe GPUs for better performance.
Unleash your imagination with new Intel Arc graphics solutions: hardware, software, and services. All built to enable premium gaming, creating, and streaming experiences.
Product and Performance Information
Performance varies by use, configuration and other factors. Learn more at Intel.com/PerformanceIndex.
The main requirement for the XeSS algorithm is graphics drivers with support for Shader Model 6.4, making it compatible with a broad set of shipping hardware.
