RIFE neural network optimized for NVIDIA RTX cards using TensorRT technology is a game-changer, cause now it's possible to run it on a middle-range cards. For example, RTX 3070 can handle 1080p videos up to x5 rate (120 fps) in a real time. And RTX 4070 Ti can do 4K. Even RTX 2060 is now good enough for 1080p @48 or even 60 fps.With the latest SVP update, TensorRT acceleration is as easy to use as any other SVP-provided interpolation method, in any video player or for a transcoding to high frame rate.More info plus some useful links are there: www.svp-team.com/wiki/RIFE_AI_interpolation ...
