Intel showed that XeSS runs on the integrated Arc graphics of Meteor Lake processors

Intel conducted a gaming demonstration of integrated Arc Alchemist graphics on the Xe-LPG architecture as part of the latest Meteor Lake mobile processors, which will be launched under the name Core Ultra.

During the demonstration, the game Dying Light 2, which supports Intel XeSS image scaling technology, was launched on an “embedded” Meteor Lake processor of an unknown model. The game ran simultaneously in native 1080p resolution and 720p resolution with XeSS upscaling enabled. It is noteworthy that in both cases the power consumption of Meteor Lake did not exceed 30 W.

Unfortunately, instead of showing the FPS counter, Intel focused on FPS scaling. According to the manufacturer, the performance increase in XeSS was 1.6 to 1.7 times and in some scenes 1.9 times compared to the original resolution.

The integrated graphics of the Meteor Lake processors use 8 Xe cores, which is close to the configuration of the Arc A370M discrete mobile GPU or the Arc A380 desktop GPU.

The first laptops with Meteor Lake processors are expected to go on sale in December.
