We're excited to release a new 3DMark feature test for Intel's new XeSS AI-enhanced upscaling technology. This new feature test is available in 3DMark Advanced and Professional Editions. 3DMark feature tests are special tests designed to highlight specific techniques, functions, or capabilities. The Intel XeSS feature test shows you how XeSS affects performance. The 3DMark Intel XeSS frame inspector tool helps you compare image quality with an interactive side-by-side comparison of XeSS and native-resolution rendering. Check out the images below to see an example comparison of native resolution rendering and XeSS in the new 3DMark feature test.
 
Comparing performance and image quality with the Intel XeSS feature test
The test renders a scene based on the 3DMark Port Royal benchmark two times to show the effect XeSS has on performance and image quality. The first run measures baseline performance by rendering the scene with temporal anti-aliasing (TAA) at the output resolution.

The second run renders the scene at a lower resolution and then uses the selected XeSS mode to upscale the frames to the output resolution.

The result screen shows you the average frame rate from each run and the difference in performance expressed as a percentage.

3DMark Intel XeSS frame inspector
The 3DMark Intel XeSS feature test includes the frame inspector tool. This tool lets you compare image quality with a side-by-side view of Intel XeSS and native-resolution rendering. You can render up to 100 consecutive frames from the feature test and freely pan around or zoom in up to 32x.

About Intel Xess
XeSS (Xe Super Sampling) is a new Intel graphics technology that uses AI-enhanced upscaling to improve performance while maintaining high image fidelity. XeSS renders each frame at a lower resolution to boost performance and then uses AI upscaling to generate frames at the target output resolution.

Available now
The Intel XeSS feature test is a free update to 3DMark Advanced Edition for users who purchased 3DMark after January 8, 2019. You can buy 3DMark on Steam or direct from the UL Benchmarks website.

To run the Intel XeSS feature test, you must have a GPU that supports Intel XeSS and Microsoft DirectX ray tracing Tier 1.1. XeSS compatible GPUs include Intel Arc GPUs, as well as AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs with Shader Model 6.4 support. You also need Windows 11 or Windows 10 64-bit, version 20H2 or newer.

If you already own 3DMark but bought it before January 8, 2019, you'll need to buy the Port Royal upgrade to unlock the Intel XeSS feature test.
 
Good to see UL on top of providing benchmarks for the new XeSS Intel feature.

    Nice In those screen shots the image is much improved
     
    Hey how about a Nvidia version needed for "Rebar" ... RE: run - 3DMark Port Royal benchmark two times to show the effect has on performance and image quality
