Galaxy Books with Nvidia GPUs can get sharper videos on Microsoft Edge

Following the lines of Intel's Video Super Resolution (VSR) for Google Chrome browsers, Microsoft has announced its own take on this feature. Microsoft has added the web video upscaler feature to the Edge web browser that uses AI to enhance the video quality of low-resolution videos (below 720p).

The best part about this is Microsoft Edge's web video upscaler (Video Super Resolution) can be used on laptops from Samsung and other brands that use AMD Radeon or NVIDIA GeForce GPUs. To be specific, it works on AMD Radeon RX 5700 or newer GPUs (7800 series) and NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 20 series or newer GPUs with Tensor cores.

Interested users can use the web video upscaler by downloading Edge Canary

There are a few things to keep in mind for this Edge web video upscaler to work properly. As already mentioned, it can upscale videos below 720p resolution, but it shouldn't be less than 192 pixels. For videos with Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection, including videos from Netflix, Prime Video, and Hulu, the new feature may not fully work.

Users who are a part of the Microsoft Edge Canary branch will see an ‘HD' icon on the address bar. Clicking on this icon will enable or disable the feature. You can manually enable this feature by navigating to edge://flags/#edge-video-super-resolution. Users can also give their feedback about this feature by heading to edge://settings/system, and pressing thumbs up or down.

On the other hand, NVIDIA's and Intel's versions of the Video Super Resolution can upscale 1080p videos in Edge and Google Chrome browsers. Microsoft said that they are working on a hybrid GPU solution for laptops that will automatically switch between integrated and dedicated GPUs when using Edge.
