Microsoft has begun to hire software engineers to develop machine learning-based upgrade algorithms, which are implemented using its DirectX/DirectML application programming interface (API) designed specifically for Xbox and Windows systems. The technology will compete with AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution and Nvidia’s DLSS.
The software giant recently posted two job vacancies, one is Senior Software Engineer the other is Graphic Lead Software Engineer Looking for graphics experts who will work on new technologies in Redmond, Washington (via Technology enhancement). These openings were announced on June 18th and June 30th, just a few days after AMD officially started supporting its FidelityFX super-resolution upgrade technology on Microsoft’s Windows platform. Since the release of open information last month, the technology seems to be in the early stages of development.
There are currently two competing game upgrade technologies: AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and Nvidia’s deep learning super sampling (DLSS). Both technologies must be implemented by game developers, but AMD’s FSR can run on almost any GPU (including Intel and Nvidia’s GPUs) and does not use any proprietary machine learning technology, while Nvidia’s DLSS requires the company GPU to work. To be honest, it should be pointed out that Nvidia is not the only company that provides proprietary upgrade technology based on artificial intelligence. Samsung has been offering one for its high-end TVs for some time.
It turns out that Microsoft wants the best of both worlds. It hopes to use machine learning-based upgrades, implemented using its industry standard DirectX API, which is widely supported by hardware from different vendors.
Creating a universal ML-based upgrade method is of great significance to Microsoft, and Microsoft has been committed to providing a consistent gaming experience on Windows for many years, regardless of the hardware the user has. For hardware developers, the technology developed by Microsoft means that they will know which features to support and how to support them in order to provide competitive performance on all hardware. Best graphics card Even those who have not fully advanced.
A job description at Microsoft is as follows:
“Xbox is using machine learning to improve the efficiency of traditional rendering algorithms and provide better alternatives. The Xbox graphics team is looking for an engineer who will implement machine learning algorithms in graphics software to please millions of gamers. Cooperation with Partners work closely together to develop software “machine learning hardware of the future.” Has a major impact on computer graphics and games. “
