Recently, there were rumors about Intel cooking up its own version of NVIDIA's DLSS or AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology. In a response to a question from former HardOCP owner Kyle Bennett, Intel graphics chief Raja Koduri revealed he's looking into the capabilities of AMD's FSR to enhance the feature set of the upcoming Xe-HPG gaming GPUs.

At the moment, we still know little about AMD FSR. The company will do a public reveal of the upscaling technology on June 22nd. Unlike NVIDIA's DLSS technology, the AMD FSR technique will not use machine learning.

It will be a cross-platform technology, that supports DirectX 11, DirectX 12, and Vulkan. It will run on a wide range of devices, including NVIDIA and Intel GPUs. In fact, AMD demonstrated FSR at its digital Computex 2021 event by showing how it improves performance on the GeForce GTX 1060.
At Computex, AMD demonstrated its competitor’s most popular graphics card on Steam (GeForce GTX 1060) successfully running with FSR enabled. AMD fans were busy analyzing the quality of FSR in action side by side ever since. However, AMD is yet to demonstrate the technology in detail later this month.
It will be interesting to see if AMD can approach what NVIDIA achieved with DLSS 2.0. A performance uplift alone is not enough, the image quality needs to be decent too.
