[PCGamesN] Intel beats AMD and Nvidia to crowd-pleasing graphics feature: integer scaling

Source: https://www.pcgamesn.com/intel/integ...11-xe-graphics

Quote:
Intel Gen11 and next-gen graphics will support integer scaling following requests by the community. Intel’s Lisa Pearce confirmed that a patch will roll out sometime in August for Gen11 chips, adding support for the highly-requested functionality in the Intel Graphics Command Center, with future Intel Xe graphics expected to follow suit in 2020.

Enthusiasts have been calling out for the functionality for quite some time, even petitioning AMD and Nvidia for driver support. Why, you ask? Essentially integer scaling is an upscaling technique that takes each pixel at, let’s say, 1080p, and times it by four – a whole number. The resulting 4K pixel values are identical to their 1080p original values, however, the user retains clarity and sharpness in the final image.

Would be a bigger deal if it was hardware acceleration for xBRZ or even Waifu2X in realtime:

can't wait for intel to enter the gpu market to give AMD competition while NV continues to scalp em'

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

What is this group of people wanting upscaling features enthusiastic about? This sounds like something that a specific crowd would be wanting (programmers, IT, I dunno), and I don't mean the typical "enthusiast" crowd that mostly just runs benchmarks and plays games.

i thought that too. I guess the pixel art, and nostalgia community?

upscale my bro-force to 2934752934K resolution pixels that're still 1080p pixels.

People with 1440p and 4K monitors who want to run RTX, but need to render at 720p and 1080p for decent framerates.

How can they be first when they have never even made a gaming gpu before?

LOL that's a feature that takes like 15min to add to any driver.

It's only usable for high PPI 4k where people run 1080p but then why bother when classic bilinear or bicubic etc. will look fine anyway.
And for all those old game emulators the scaling is done in the emulator with shaders etc. = this feature is useless for those.

If they want to impress they should offer a proper high quality scaling that has built in hardware acceleration. Something that puts DLSS to shame which isn't that hard to do mind you.
