NVIDIA has announced RTX Video Super Resolution, a new feature coming to GeForce RTX 40 and 30 Series GPUs that uses AI to improve the quality of videos viewed in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers by removing blocky compression artifacts and upscaling video resolution.

According to a video shared by NVIDIA, RTX Video Super Resolution can be used to upscale lower-resolution features (e.g., 1080p) up to 4K quality, with comparisons demonstrating what appears to be a big improvement in sharpness and detail versus the original version.

“Coming to GeForce RTX 40 and 30 Series GPUs next month, the RTX Video Super Resolution feature uses AI to improve the quality of any video watched in a browser by removing blocky compression artifacts and upscaling video resolution,” NVIDIA said in an article regarding its new GeForce RTX 40 Series Studio Laptops. “This improves video sharpness and clarity, and lets people watch online content in its native resolution on high-resolution displays.”

NVIDIA goes on to confirm that RTX Video Super Resolution will be avaialble in February for Chrome and Edge browsers.

Popular video upscaling options that are available on the market today include Video AI, a program from Topaz Labs that allows users to pick from various AI profiles to improve the quality of video, up to 8K.

“Topaz Video AI focuses solely on completing a few video enhancement tasks really well: deinterlacing, upscaling, and motion interpolation,” the company writes. “We’ve taken five years to craft AI models robust enough for natural results on real-world footage.”

Video AI costs $299.
