Opera GX launches new ‘RGX Mode,’ a free video and image sharpening technology that enhances the browsing experience

Opera GX incorporates RGX.

15 December 2022, Oslo, Norway—In keeping with several groundbreaking graphic advancements made by leading GPU manufacturers, Opera GX, the browser for gamers, is introducing a technology that could potentially rival that of real-time ray tracing, codenamed RGX.

Unlike GPU manufacturers, Opera GX is offering RGX at a market-first price point — free of charge — and consumes little to no additional resources, which means it doesn’t  require any upgrade in setup.

Technically speaking, RGX is a content enhancing technology that applies to video and image elements on webpages. Traditionally, filters of this caliber require GPU acceleration, whereas in Opera GX, the technology is built right into the browser. Non-technically speaking, your new video and image quality will knock your socks off.

“Gamers familiar with ray tracing technology or lucky enough to own a RTX series graphics card will immediately see the value of RGX,” said Maciej Kocemba, Product Director at Opera GX. “RGX Mode shows just how far this type of technology has come.”

Anyone browsing the web with RGX enabled will immediately make their favorite content—which, let’s be honest, is already *pretty* good—even better. 

“That’s the beauty of RGX,” concludes Kocemba. “You don’t need a gigabit connection or YouTube Premium to enjoy it – you can just view things in HD right in your browser. It’s so seamlessly integrated you might not even notice it’s there, but your eyes certainly will.”

Download Opera GX to enable RGX Mode, and test it on your favorite content to see the difference for yourself. To enable RGX, click the floating button that automatically appears above videos alternatively go to settings to have more configuration options. We recommend testing on this festive gem from Wham!.

About Opera GX

Opera GX is not your standard browser. But it could be, just like it is for millions of gamers globally looking for a more custom Internet experience. Along with countless customization options including color themes, sound effects, background music, and a gaming-inspired design, Opera GX includes CPU, RAM and Network Bandwidth limiters that make the browser less resource-hungry and leave more of the computer’s resources for gaming. The browser also includes a Hot Tabs Killer feature, which lets users “kill” the most resource-draining tabs and GX Cleaner to purge those old unwanted files.
