'out-' affix in conlangs?

Does anyone have an affix in their conlang that corresponds more or
less directly to the English prefix 'out-' as in transitive verbs as
'outperform', 'outsell', etc.?

It would be a nice feature if a language had this a the only way to
form comparisons, especially languages where advectives are verbs.  So
you would say ,Jim outtalls John'.  ANADEW?

I just made a sidenote to think about this in new conlangs.
