AFAIK There is no fundamental difference between the old oversampling technology (4x or 8x) which has been around for decades, and 'synchronous upsampling'. The decision to 'upsample' was just a decision to implement a solution able to accept a digital signal from varying sample rates (32k, 44.1k, 48k, 96k, etc.) and output a signal at a higher resolution.
Sonically, it may be true that that was a step in the wrong direction. OTOH, I would be very surprised if you could differentiate in a listening test between a 44.1 signal oversampled to 176.4k and one upsampled to 192k. In fact designing such a test would be difficult.
