[Benchmark] AVIVO PureVideo DXVA HD Acceleration Guide

1300 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Coma

HTPCs and HD content are growing more and more around the GPU industry. ATI and NVIDIA have been working on technologies to playback and enhance this video content for many years. NVIDIA started working on their PureVideo technology and added the PureVideo HD some time ago. ATI on the other hand, has their own AVIVO technology and as it was obvious, they name their latest technology AVIVO HD. Now, while these technologies have been marketed too much, I´ve noticed that the big consumers majority doesn´t even know how to use them. The real problem is that neither NVIDIA nor ATI have done enough to help people use their technology. They can bombard you with so many pictures, images and text but neither of these things will offer a simple guide on how to use the software tools in the real world.

Here at Benchmark Reviews, we will teach you how to use your GPU to playback and enhance HD video content, and we´re not limited to DVD or Blu-ray content, because we´ll also address .mkv files so that you can enjoy your stored multimedia. There is so much content available for download from Internet which can be reproduced without using your CPU, that it makes good sense to enhance the image quality whenever possible. Please, have a read at our AVIVO-HD PureVideo-HD DXVA GPU Acceleration Guide and enjoy the Full High Definition experience as it was meant to be!

I came across this guide on Benchmark Reviews and found it interesting. I do plan on implementing it myself on all my PC's seeing as I've encountered much of what the author describes. This works for both nVidia and ATi, so I hope all you videophiles out there find this guide very useful for either your PC, your HTPC, or both.

looks just the same as guru3d guide

still nice find
Not useful for (Windows) videophiles because DXVA locks you to a certain path. You don't get to change anything after the video goes to the decoder (which means you can do ... nothing). Video goes into decoder, video shows up on screen. So videophiles who want to tweak their setup, can't. On Linux there's VDPAU (NVIDIA), which is a lot more flexible.
