In case you thought your GPU (or even CPU) is only for games.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Get the SVP and madVR software projects for your videos. The first will increase all your videos FPS to 60 or more on the fly (some say it's a "home video" effect and that "it makes actors real" but it's exactly the reason I love it, it makes people look more real) and the second is a project that all will love, it makes your upscaling of videos (even if it's only for a 1080 monitor) tremendously crispier and better, depended on the GPU. biggrin.gif

The best part is that those projects work increasingly better, with an increasingly better hardware (research the upscaling algorithms of madVR) so you'll have an extra excuse to have a good GPU wink.gif

More info: SVP: http://www.svp-team.com/ *the 60FPS+ thing

You'll never watch a video otherwise again. smile.gif

Just to note, MadVR does require decent processing power so entry-level build may have issues with it if you are doing heavy multi-tasking.

I wouldn't worry much. My i7 Sandy Bridge laptop from 2011 with a rehashed AMD 5650 can do 60FPS on 1080p and upscale with a Lanczos X3. thumb.gif

Sure I'm pushing its limits to the max tongue.gif (without frame drops) but it's at a point that further improvements would not be massive.

Though it is my extra excuse for a new system. thumb.gif

edit: Ah, a big benefit was to disable the smoothing algorithm since it's heavy and at 60FPS it appears less needed anyway.
