NVIDIA RTX Video Super Resolution Is Now Available

NVIDIA’s AI upscaling tool, RTX Video Super Resolution (VSR), was recently made available for download for both its GeForce RTX 30 Series and RTX 40 Series GPUs. First announced at the start of the year and as per the description, the technology allows users using either an Ampere or Ada Lovelace-powered GPU to upscale their favourite online videos from a lower resolution up to 4K.

The way RTX VSR functions is similar to the way NVIDIA’s DLSS technology works, the main difference being the latter is used for gaming, while the former is designed to work seamlessly with browsers and more specifically, Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. With the help of Tensor Cores and AI image processing techniques that are gained from countless hours of training, through the GPU brand’s DNN servers, the new technology is able to remove compression artifacts such as blockiness, banding, while improving overall sharpness and clarity. All in real-time, naturally.

“The deep learning network is trained on a wide range of content with various compression levels. It learns about types of compression artifacts present in low-resolution or low-quality videos that are otherwise absent in uncompressed images as a reference for network training. Extensive visual evaluation is employed to ensure that the generated model is effective on nearly all real-world and gaming content,” as explained on the official NVIDIA blog.

Mind you, RTX VSR isn’t only applicable to still images – NVIDIA has ensured that the technology is also applicable on video content from different streaming services, including Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu. Having said that, it is imperative that you ensure that Chrome or Edge on your desktop has been updated to the latest version. Otherwise, the feature just won’t function. Specifically, the Chrome version you’re looking for is 110.0.5481.105 or higher, while your Edge browser must be version 110.0.1587.56 or higher.

Once updated, simply launch NVIDIA Control Panel, open “Adjust Video image settings”, tick off the Super Resolution box under the “RTX video enhancement” tab, and choose from one of four upscaling qualities.
