Intel’s head of graphics software Lisa Pearce goes a little further, boldly claiming that there is “no visible quality loss” at all in the 1080p image compared to its native 4K counterpart.
Intel XeSS’ results are made possible by deep learning. “XeSS uses deep learning to synthesize images that are very close to the quality of native high-res...
