If you use an NVIDIA 30 OR 40-Series GPU, you can easily switch native video quality to RTX Video Super Resolution to boost your video quality to have a good visual experience. However, For those who are not tech geeks, the RTX VSR sounds too foreign to them. Given that, this post comes here. On this page, we will show you everything about the RTX Video Super Resolution. Now, let's get started!

RTX Video Super Resolution

What Is RTX Video Super Resolution

RTX Video Super Resolution, also known as RTX VSR, was introduced by Nvidia this year, 2023. According to official accounts, RTX Video Super Resolution uses the AI tensor cores inside of the GeForce RTX graphics to upscale and clean up grainy videos, exporting high-quality videos. In other words, it uses the power of AI to upscale your low video quality, even up to the 4K or 8K resolution. In plain English, just like putting on a pair of prescription glasses can instantly snap the world into focus.

Recently, Nvidia announced an update to RTX Video Super Resolution (RTX VSR 1.5), which brings more great features than the older one.

For example, the AI model has been retrained, and it can identify the difference between subtle details and compression artifacts to preserve image details better. To conclude, this RTX VSR update provides greater overall graphical fidelity with preserved details and upscale for native videos.

How RTX Video Super Resolution Works

Most streamed videos are affected by blocky compression artifacts, resulting in a less pleasant visual experience for users while watching the streamed videos. Fortunately, the RTX VSR can solve the problem.

"It uses a Deep Learning Network, which analyzes the lower-resolution video and predicts what it should look like at the target resolution. It then superimposes the predicted image on top of a traditionally upscaled image to eliminate any artifacts. Plus, it also sharpens the image along the way, giving you a better output." written in an official blog from Nvidia

In a word, the RTX VSR can reduce or eliminate artifacts caused by compressing video and then upscale video quality.
