kyiv Martins, who’s a producer at Huge Work Studio, has confirmed that Dolmen would be the first sport to assist all three main supersampling applied sciences: AMD FSR (1.0), NVIDIA DLSS, and Intel XeSS.

The launch of the sport is now scheduled for Might 20. On the identical day, Dolmen will obtain a Day 0 patch which is able to embrace assist for Intel XeSS know-how, turning into the primary sport to take action.

Will XeSS assist be out there at launch?
I feel I can inform you that every part, together with the partnership with Intel, shall be launched within the Day One patch.

The launch of Intel XeSS reportedly comes simply 8 days after AMD confirmed off its FSR 2.0 know-how, each seen as worthy contenders to dethrone NVIDIA DLSS as soon as they change into out there in additional video games. AMD FSR2 and Intel XeSS will even change into open-source, whereas NVIDIA DLSS is not going to.

Intel hints that DP4a and XMX may not be wanted

Intel has confirmed that XeSS may have a unified API for sport builders, however the know-how will assist numerous acceleration methods. XeSS may be accelerated by XMX cores, which is a brand new sort of core out there with Intel GPUs, or alternatively, by way of the DP4a instruction, supported by a a lot wider ecosystem, together with AMD and NVIDIA.

Up to now, Intel has said that assist for XMX and DP4a directions is required, which implies architectures resembling NVIDIA Maxwell is not going to be supported. Apparently, the outline on the official web site states that solely Shader Mannequin 6.4 is required, which is supported by Maxwell. However would that imply Intel lowered the necessities or that DP4a acceleration is non-obligatory? Effectively, the outline clearly states “moreover” and “might exploit”, from DP4a suitable {hardware}, not that it’s a necessity.
