Qualcomm’s new processors, real-time ray tracing It will include features commonly used in the latest PC graphics cards, such as popular lately resolution boostis now available to improve performance and battery life in graphics-intensive mobile games. Snapdragon to the processors.
PC style graphics will be possible for mobile
Qualcommis a feature that can improve performance and battery life in mobile and augmented reality games. Snapdragon Game Super Resolution (GSR) introduced. The company uses this method with AMD’s FSR, Nvidia’s DLSS and IntelIt likens it to PC and console gaming processes like ‘s XeSS.
AMD, Nvidia and Intel’s upscaling solutions save processing power by supersampling the game resolution instead of running natively at higher resolutions. Machine learning, DLSS and XeSS, is currently used on Nvidia and Intel GPUs, respectively. Qualcomm says the new feature supports most GPUs but includes optimizations that make it work best on Snapdragon’s Adreno GPU.
Qualcomm’s GSR works with the same logic as other upgrade methods. About the single-pass, spatially-aware feature, Qualcomm claims it improves the performance of phones and extends battery life by lowering energy consumption.
The company shared the 2x resolution quality screenshots, comparing the results with FSR and DLSS 1080p and 4K performance mode. One demo was upscaled from 540p to 1080p, and the other from 1080p to 4K. Qualcomm also claims that the GSR can make the difference between 30fps and 60fps. With these results, the GSR will perform similarly as the FSR and DLSS performance modes.
The Snapdragon GSR’s single pass feature can combine edge sharpening and upscaling using distance sensitive dynamic scaling. Then, it can keep the quality stable with additional processes such as tone mapping to improve performance. Game Super Resolution’s 12-core window can also calculate brightness only in the green color channel, where the human eye is most sensitive.
The list of GSR supported games is as follows; Call of Duty Mobile, Farming Simulator 23 Mobile, Jade Dynasty: New Fantasy, Return to Empire, Justice Mobile and Naraka Mobile.
