An irresponsible and misleading headlines. You don't get "performance" by running a game at a lower resolution and upscaling it. You might as well say "intel iGPUs get 50% better performance from running at half resolution".

Of course you get a higher frame rate from dropping your resolution from 4K to 1440p/1800p. That's not a performance gain though that's simply taking load off your GPU.

More than that, that DLSS upscaling often is so poor that it's bested by plain sharpen filter applied on regular upscaling to 4k after setting in-game render resolution to ~1800p.

And that regular upscaling+sharpen provides the same speed gains on new Radeons. You can find several reviews on youtube with quality and speed comparisons.
