Not only are Tensor Cores good at anti-aliasing, they’re also spectacular at increasing resolution, aka super sampling.
In fact, Nvidia is introducing a new version of the graphics option known as Deep Learning Super Sampling. Nvidia calls it a breakthrough in high-quality motion image generation, as the technique super-samples and anti-aliases at the same time.
At the RTX launch event we saw demos Epic Infiltrator, in which a DLSS 2X version of the experience running on an Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti was able to match the quality of 64X super-sampled render with temporal anti-aliasing generated by an Nvidia GTX 1080.
Now, that’s not exactly a fair fight, the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti would have been a better match up, but it’s impressive none the less. 64X super-sampling which typically requires duplicating a pixel 64 times and shifting it slightly for a larger image.
Meanwhile, Nvidia tells us that DLSS 2X can create sharper images than TAA could, which we can attest to from our demo experience.
