One of the new features of NVIDIA's Turing GPUs is the ability to use Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) technology, an AI-based technology that promises better image quality without the performance drop. In a recent interview, AMD GPU Product Marketing manager Adam Kozak revealed his company is experimenting with the evaluation version of Microsoft's DirectML to achieve a DLSS-like effect.
According to Kozak, the Radeon VII is showing excellent results in that experiment. Kozak suggests a DLSS-like thing can be done with a GPGPU-like approach.
Before we get too excited about such a gaming future, AMD is only just experimenting with DirectML and the DLSS-like approach seems to be more of a theory than anything which is going into effect any time soon. That said, maybe there’ll be some interesting new features in this December’s Adrenalin update… or even sooner if AMD’s Navi has anything to say about it.
Kozak also boasts that in open-source ray tracing tests, the Radeon VII significantly beats the GeForce RTX 2080:
He says that his reasoning for this also stems from the fact that AMD has been testing the Radeon VII in open source ray tracing tests, and that in the OpenCL-based Luxmark benchmark the upcoming 7nm GPU scores 62% higher than the RTX 2080 in the “GPGPU-like ray tracing renderer.”
The Radeon VII debuts on February 7th for $699.
