Galaxy G210 and GT 220 review : Arrival of Nvidia’s 40nm DX10.1 video cards
Free software such as Media Player Classic Home Cinema can use GPU acceleration using DXVA (DirectX Video Acceleration) protocol. As this card could be used for a HTPC-gaming rig, we decided to check out its Full-HD video playback capabilities.
I used Media Player Classic Home Cinema for the playback. The video used was the trailer of movie “The International” available from Divx 7 HD showcase Webpage. This is a 12.3 Mbps 1920×816 video. Here’s the image with video info
There is not much difference here as all of the GPUs are able to keep the CPU usage on a dual core CPU below 20% which is very good. This means that you will be able to enjoy smooth Full HD video playback on your system using GPU acceleration.
