Intel is working on Video Super Resolution (VSR) technology for Chrome

As it seems, Intel is working on its own super resolution technology called Video Super Resolution (VSR). For Chrome family browsers which are based on Chromium engine works. We’ve seen this technology in a very limited way before, and Intel engineers have mentioned it and Chrome support several times, but it wasn’t clear until now if it would work at all, and if so, how. Works.

Chrome supports Intel VSR technology

Now we know that Intel’s Video Super Resolution (VSR) technology is enabled on some Intel graphics cards, but Chrome still does not officially support it, and enabling it on Chrome requires manual operations. In fact, there is no magic switch in the Intel control panel that will do this, and a series of commands in Windows must be changed.

Support for this feature depends on the generation and graphic architecture of the host system; But at the moment, the support of Intel’s 10th generation and newer processors – of course, processors with internal graphics – of this technology is certain. Intel is quietly working on the support of Arc graphics cards for this technology. In general, the quality and performance of this technology on Chrome depends on the power of the host’s graphics processor. To use this feature, the desired browser must be at least based on Chromium engine version 109 (older than the version required by Nvidia). After that, hardware acceleration must be enabled for Chrome and the host GPU must support VSR. VSR can then be enabled on Chrome by running this command on Windows:

Some users have been able to activate this feature and some have not. Because Chrome support for Intel VSR is not official yet, these bugs exist. But if this support is officially established, the output will be something like this:

VSR output depends more on the host graphics card than anything else. In addition, the active VSR also increases the system’s energy consumption, and its constant use – especially on laptops – is not always the best choice.
