Nvidia’s Latest Drivers Can Upscale Blurry YouTube Videos

Today, Nvidia is launching new GPU drivers that feature an innovative technology called RTX Video Super Resolution. This AI-based upscaling technology can enhance the quality of older, low-resolution web videos on RTX 30- and 40-series cards. This technology is compatible with Chrome or Edge browsers. It uses edge sharpening and video artifact reduction techniques to refine video quality.

This new driver can support videos with frame rates up to 144Hz and resolutions ranging from 360p to 1440p, and can even upscale to an impressive 4K resolution. Previously, this advanced 4K upscaling was only available on Nvidia’s Shield TV. However recent advancements in the Chromium engine have now made it possible on their latest RTX 30- and 40-series cards.

This technology can be applied to enhance any web video, making it possible to upscale content from streaming services like Netflix or Twitch, which typically require an extra payment for 4K streams. With the impressive results already seen on the Shield TV, it’s expected that this technique will be widely used to improve old and blurry YouTube videos.

Nvidia has been incorporating AI techniques for years to enhance videos and games, with Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) being their most popular system. They also introduced a driver last year that featured Deep Learning Dynamic Super Resolution (DLDSR), which allows for games to be rendered at a higher resolution than your monitor can handle to improve image quality. Last month, Nvidia released its Eye Contact feature for Nvidia Broadcast, which uses AI to make it appear as though you are making direct eye contact during video calls.
