Nvidia’s latest GPU drivers will use AI to upscale blurry videos

New GPU drivers from chipmaker Nvidia are now out, and they will upscale blurry old web videos on RTX 30 and 40-series cards.

According to the company, streaming video currently consumes about 80% of internet bandwidth, 90% of which is 1080p or lower and comes from sites like Twitch.tv, YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu.

“With RTX Video Super Resolution (VSR), GeForce RTX 40 and 30 Series GPU users can tap AI to upscale lower-resolution content up to 4K, matching their display resolution. The AI removes blocky compression artifacts and improves the video’s sharpness and clarity, while streaming video on PCs through Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge,” Nvidia said in a blogpost.

By running low-quality photos through a deep learning model to anticipate the high-resolution equivalents, the technique of “AI upscaling” raises the resolution of lower-resolution material.

The chip maker said that the GeForce RTX 40 and 30 Series PCs’ RTX Video Super Resolution provides viewers with a clear insight into the world of streaming video.

Using RTX VSR, video compression artifacts such blockiness, ringing artifacts around edges, washout of high-frequency details, and banding on flat regions are minimized or removed while minimizing lost textures.
It also makes details and sharpens edges.

The newest GeForce Game Ready Driver includes RTX VSR, per the company.
