If you try to upscale a source file that is a 1080p MKV from a bluray it needs horrendous amounts of horsepower! My pretty decent computer can easily handle 480p anime episodes though.

Hmm what kind of horsepower? I watch mainly 720/1080p anime. Guessing might be too much for my 8350 then?

Also depends on the anime in question. Very grainy/high bitrate anime would be a lot harder to interpolate I'd assume.
Reading the FAQ, anime needs lower quality settings (the high quality ones don't work with anime) so this should boost performance.

As a test they do have their own benchmark svpmark with online results database. Select processor and gpu and find the results if you can't be bothered to do it yourself.

The graph shows a GPU can increase performance by nearly 50%, so the 2 together are important. Not sure how much of a difference SLI/CFX makes.

The main factor is the bitrate, I reckon Anime will be far easier to process than the sort of detailed blu ray movies you get so you should be OK. Cartoon graphics even sophisticated ones are very efficient and light on bitrate compared to films.

My i2-2500k at stock speeds, with a GTX680 at stock interpolates 720p anime (Dragon Ball Z Kai actually) to a 120Hz (120FPS) 1080p monitor with absolute ease. 25 - 30% CPU load.

Interpolating 1080p anime should be similarly easy. Your 8350 will be fine (afaik)

Where can I find the benchmarks at? On the svp website?

My gpu is the 7990, so would be nice if the cfx helped smile.gif. I'm at work for another few hours, interested in trying this out when I get home.

Every since I've had computers that can play hd content, I've become spoiled my hd anime. I usually won't watch a series in sd unless its an older non hd series.

http://www.svp-team.com/wiki/Main_Page it's under "more stuff"

With your setup I'd be surprised if you couldn't improve the highest bitrate stuff - 10 to 20 kbps - to 1440p 60Hz. 120Hz shouldn't be too difficult either. If you can find Tenshi's Dantalian no Shoka BD remux's anywhere I'd try those - if you can play those back you should be fine.
I'm assuming you use madvr on the highest settings (if not, search for the Kawaii Codec Pack).

As hamzatm said, normal bluray movies will be much harder to run.

As an interesting CPU test, once you have madvr +xy-vsfilter try playing back Commie's Shingeki no Kyojin ep1. If you can playback the first 20 secs of the OP I will be very impressed (90k lines of typesetting, mine can't handle it).

Thanks! I'll def look into this when I get home. Anything to improve my anime watching smile.gif. My machine has been able to handle everything I can throw at it so far (upgraded from my core 2 quad Q6600 6 gigs of ram, xfx radeon 7770 black edition), but I know theres a limit somewhere.

And no I haven't tried madvr, I hadn't even thought of improving video quality when it comes to my pc before, I've just always tried to improve my graphics and video game capabilities (ie getting the 7990.)

First of all, if it says "refund $5 for all dead pixel" avoid it.

Secondly, green-sum does not consider "dark" (his word) pixels as dead pixels, and they have no standard for how many are needed for a replacement.
The only guarantee is that there are no bright/stuck pixels.

This is based on the Perfect Pixel X-Star Matte I got from him.
After a few emails, he gave me a guarantee that there would be max 1 dark pixel, not near the center.

So if you are getting perfect pixel from him, take the time to clarify these things, or you could end up with something a lot worse than expected.

Good luck!

Thanks for the tips but within the Greensum ad i listed he clearly states more then 1 in the center or more then 5 in the other quadrants is a defect and does not offer any $5.00 dead pixel refunds.

I still can order from Hulustar below since it does appear more folks have used him as a seller:

I have two monitors from hulustar and have had no issues.
