Full HD playback Results
In our AVIVO Purevideo DXVA GPU Acceleration guide we explained how to enable GPU processing with different software available. Since Power DVD has proved to have the latest support for NVIDIA and ATI GPUs, it was only a matter of time until they included the newest Intel HD graphics support to their software's package. Finally, with the 10th version of Power DVD, it now supports "Intel Clear Video" GPU acceleration, and we're testing it today against other solutions. Of course, we analyzed CPU usage while reproducing a full HD 1080p video with Power DVD 10 and reported the results with both DXVA enabled and disabled settings. Have a look at the next chart:
It seems like reproducing Full HD videos isn't a difficult task for these CPUs anymore. All the results are similar, and can vary because of different causes, but overall, they show the same trend. It's almost ridiculous to see that it took more CPU power to render the HD video when overclocked, but as I've said, it's not really an important value. Even if you buy an Intel G9650 Processor for your HTPC, you'll be able to reproduce Full HD videos and Blu-Ray movies without a hassle even if you're not using "Intel Clear Video" technology.
