Nvidia Is Bringing RTX Video Super Resolution Feature To Chrome

The new feature will allow users to view videos in the browser in upscaled 4K quality

Google Chrome supports new Nvidia technology that upscales video playing in the web browser. The feature is currently in testing but showcases high-quality results.

The feature will allow anyone with an RTX 30 or RTX 40-series Nvidia GPU to upscale any video content they play. Many videos are uploaded to streaming services in a limited capacity due to bandwidth limitations, this means 4K viewing is often out of the question.

However, with this update, owners of these GPUs will be able to say goodbye to low-resolution video and hello to upscaled 4K. Nvidia expected to release the new driver support earlier this month, but this is yet to happen. Although a Nvidia employee has confirmed it is still coming this month.

Upscaled viewing

Nvidia showcased footage of the tech, dubbed Nvidia RTX Video Super Resolution at CES earlier this year. The clip featured gameplay from Apex Legends recorded at 1080p and upscaled to 4K. The results looked extremely promising, eliminating the low-resolution look and granting a much cleaner image.

For those with a Nvidia RTX GPU this offers an excellent opportunity for a better viewing experience while in the browser for both Google Chrome and Edge. This could be a game changer if the results are as sharp as those shown in the demo footage. Nvidia has also stated that they intend to support RTX 2000 cards in the future. Users will need to remember to turn on the new feature in the Nvidia control panel when it goes live.

Nvidia currently has plans for its Omniverse Enterprise platform, which looks to create and operate metaverse applications. In addition to this, the company also announced that its game streaming service, GeForce Now would be coming to cars
