Opera GX Reveals New RGX Update, Enabling Users to Enhance Videos and Images to Premium Quality Without Spending a Cent

Spongebob's Patrick gets a huge facelift with Opera GX's RGX Mode update.

OSLO, NORWAY – October 26, 2023 – Opera GX, the browser for gamers, today announced a major update to its RGX Mode that enhances videos and images during your web-surfing adventures. Opera GX has once again seamlessly integrated improved rendering and quality enhancement for videos and images to give you a turbocharged browsing experience without having to pop open your PC case. 

While GPU manufacturers would have you max out your credit for a new graphics card, Opera GX users don’t need the latest hardware, a premium subscription, or to sit through a series of unskippable ads – they can enjoy the high-definition visual feast right in their browser for free. The new RGX mode also has the “Split Preview” option, which allows you to see the improvements you’re making to graphics in real time by moving your cursor across the image or video.

“After Opera GX originally announced RGX 1.0 in December 2022, we knew people would think our high-def promises sounded too good to be true. That’s why, with this round of updates, we also added a preview window so users can see the improvements for themselves and put the improved RGX Mode to the test,” said Maciej Kocemba, Product Director at Opera GX.

To set up RGX, simply access the RGX sub-menu and set your effect preferences by adjusting the sliders for video and images according to what looks best to your eye. Customizable sliders allow users to fine-tune and adjust the intensity of the enhancements, letting them find the precise configuration that looks best with their setup and optimally suits their needs. 

“With hardware prices skyrocketing and video streaming services all but forcing premium subscriptions on consumers, we wanted to bring our users a seamless way to ensure they’re getting sharper images and videos without the price tag or commitment. RGX provides that same feast for the eyes without starving the wallet,” Kocemba concluded.
