Microsoft is Working on its Own DLSS-Like Upscaler For Windows 11

Microsoft has been secretly working on its own Windows 11-based AI upscaler. According to the latest test version of Windows 11, the AI upscaler was added to the operating system and users can test it out.

Keep in mind that Microsoft has yet to officially announce the feature. The setting simply lists the toggle as “use AI to make supported games play more smoothly with enhanced detail”. However, we don’t know yet how this upscaler works alongside NVIDIA DLSS, for example.

If you don’t know, an AI upscaler, like NVIDIA DLSS, uses AI to upscale games and improve frame rates and image quality. Both AMD and NVIDIA have their own versions of AI upscaling available for games.

Given that the Windows 11 upscaler hasn’t been announced yet, we don’t know how it works. We aren’t sure if the feature is reliant on specific hardware or if it is CPU or software-based. Other upscaling tech, such as NVIDIA DLSS requires specific tensor cores found in NVIDIA GPUs. To that upscaler relies on actual hardware to compute the algorithms.

Microsoft will likely share details on the Windows 11 AI upscaler in the future to shed light on its requirements.

Along with the new Windows 11 AI upscaler, the latest test version of the operating system also came with a new Colour Management feature. The feature will let users add and remove colour profiles to Windows 11.

The new feature is a lot cleaner than what Windows had before. Previously, users had to add profiles to the Colour Management tab which was hidden away in the Display Properties panel. Now, these settings are found in System – Display – Colour Management and should be easier to find.

The settings page not only lets you add profiles but you can also use the calibration tools and there’s an automatic colour toggle too.

These new features are expected to roll out to general Windows 11 users soon.
