Do GPUs affect Video quality?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN.

So I honestly don't understand this!

I've been told video quality vary on GPU by some people and told by another bunch of people that video quality vary on internet speed.

Or is it both?


I've used a very old laptop and my current sig rig only to find I can't run both past 480p stable. =/

So could this be internet?

Also when I was at a hotel and I used their internet, couldn't even run 360p stable.


But then why do I see people posting that they could stream videos better with a better graphic card from before?!

Confused.

You can't run past 480p stable??

Is the video ( i am assuming youtube) buffered? If not, then it is internet connection problem aka you can't buffer (get the bits from internet of the video) as fast as you can watch it in real time.

You sig rig could power any resolution video at max fps no lag or whatever

It must be due to your internet speed, for it to affect your sig rig.

GPU don't affect the speed videos from youtube load, it's all due to the internet connection. When you say stable you mean without stopping to buffer?

Yes, on YouTube, that white buffer ring appears whenever I try to run it on 480p. mad.gif

LOL. It's obviously the Internet that is causing it to lag.

The buffer ring is the video loading. What is your internet speed?

it's looks like not the GPU problem,what's your internet speed?
post #10 of 14
yes gpus affect video quality if you have an ancient 32mb onboard, videos will be crap and it cant even play 720p.

If you have at least 64mb onboard on your laptop, 480p will play fine.

Internet speed doesnt affect video quality, it only affects video loading time.
Once the video has fully loaded, even after half an hour if you have a very slow connection, the video will play normally.
