Users of RTX 40 and 30 series GPUs can now upscale lower-resolution videos and the streamed content in Google Chrome and Edge browsers.
NVIDIA has shared a new blog post announcing the release of new GPU drivers for GeForce RTX 40 and 30 series GPUs that will bring the company's RTX Video Super Resolution to Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge users.
First unveiled back in early January, RTX VSR is an AI-powered feature capable of improving the quality of videos and the streamed content in a browser by upscaling lower-resolution video content up to 4K, removing compression artifacts, and improving the video's sharpness and clarity. Powered by a deep learning network, the tech supports videos with a native resolution between 360p and 1440p and up to 144Hz frame rate, upscaling them up to 4K resolution.
"The technology uses a deep learning network that performs upscaling and compression artifact reduction in a single pass," commented NVIDIA on the inner workings of RTX VSR. "The network analyzes the lower-resolution video frame and predicts the residual image at the target resolution. This residual image is then superimposed on top of a traditional upscaled image, correcting artifact errors and sharpening edges to match the output resolution."
RTX VSR requires a GeForce RTX 40 or 30 series GPU and works with nearly all video content in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. You can learn more and download the drivers here.
