Web videos are upgraded to sharp 4K by Nvidia’s RTX Video Super Resolution

If you place a high value on video quality, you’re in luck because we have some exciting news to offer. At today’s GeForce Beyond CES 2023 webcast, Nvidia revealed a whole new AI upscaling tool. In Chrome and Edge, this feature is known as RTX Video Super Resolution, and it was developed to improve video quality by upscaling 1080p content to 4K. However, it can only be used on PCs that have a graphics processing unit (GPU) from NVIDIA’s RTX-40 series or RTX-30 series. In order to observe the gadget in operation and make an informed decision.

Using the artificial intelligence (AI) prowess of the tensor cores contained in contemporary GeForce GPUs, the RTX Video Super Resolution tool smooths out any rough edges, as seen in the video. This is accomplished by eliminating the distortion-causing big pixel blocks generated by the blocky compression artefacts. After thoroughly cleaning the input, it enlarges it. The goal is to make binge-watching your favourite episodes more visually appealing by enhancing the video quality on larger screens. This tool, however, has zero bearing on the games you play. This only applies to browser-streamed media. Use DLSS if you want to play video games (in titles that support it).

At this time, it looks that just a 1080p to 4K upscaling is possible. Not sure how you feel about this, but I’m very pumped about it because I’m the type of person that frequently watches videos online on their computer. In my home, the improved video quality has been a welcome addition. In February of this year, you’ll be able to use Nvidia’s artificial intelligence technology. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and the first RTX 4090 laptops were just two of the exciting new pieces of gear that Nvidia unveiled at CES 2023, and you can check them out right here.
