Thanks @Dr. Nick, this is one of the things I'm most interested in that you seem to be the only one covering. Much appreciated.I am doing these videos because the Iris Xe( 11th Generation) uses a driver-based dp4a solution that is likely more performant than non-Intel GPUs that use shader model 6.4 for dp4a.
That's a very positive result. To actually be faster and look better than native.At least in this game, XeSS looks slightly better than native, has a 6 to 7 frame-rate advantage over native
With such low dp4a performance I only expected better IQ with same framerate or slightly lower at quality setting.
This is the total opposite to what I expected.and is usually 1 to 2 frames faster than FSR 2 in Quality modes. Textures look much better in FSR 2
Expected XeSS to look better but be slower.
1 to 2 frames is margin if error, but still to be close to fsr is an achievement
Wonder if textures is due to lack of sharpening especially at low resolution?
