NVIDIA RTX Video Super Resolution now in Chrome

Chrome 110 already supports RTX VSR, but NVIDIA still needs to release a new driver. 

NVIDIA upscaling technologies will soon enter a new dimension, online video streaming will soon be improved with the power of RTX graphics. The company announced that RTX Video Super Resolution will unlock up to 4K AI upscaling with Chrome and Edge Internet browsers.

Google has just released a new early stable version of Chrome (110.0.5481.77), which is now available to a small percentage of users and will see broader release on February 7th (i.e. the actual release).

According to the official changelog, Chrome 110 already supports this technology, but it will still need a new driver to work. Furthermore, it is now confirmed that RTX VSR will only work if enabled by users manually through NVIDIA Control Panel. It will not be enabled by default.

NVIDIA showcased the technology working for YouTube, but one can imagine that it will find a much broader use. Technically speaking, nothing should stop NVIDIA and Google from allowing VSR to work with GeForce Now or even premium video streaming platforms such as Netflix. That could theoretically allow 4K videos from 1080p source and an opportunity to safe on higher membership tier.

As long as official information is considered, RTX VSR will only work with GeForce RTX 30 and RTX 40 graphics cards. The RTX 20 series are also confirmed to be supported later. NVIDIA still needs to release a compatible driver which should happen sometime in late February.
