I have an older lower end Delta and found great improvement with going to a Diablo blade. Since it is mainly for 2×4 and getting boards to rough length I didn’t go beyond that grade.

Also, I found that my saw was coming down on very slight angle causing fuzz and tearout mostly on one side of the cut. Check to see if your issue is on both sides of the board you cut. If the tearout is on one side more than the other, check the blade alignment. I forget how I adjusted mine, but the cuts became much cleaner. After the alignment I just had to kiss the edge with a sanding block.
