The Advanced Vid Playback settings such as (Sharpening/inverstelecine)... are those Proccesse's done threw the GFX card decoder/GPU?

So they would have a big advantage over for example the Sharpening/etc filters in ffdshow, or other similar decoders.

Or are those NV settings not porccessed by the GPU and have no advantage over said filters?
-----------------------

im wondering, because the 8x.xx drivers perform a hair line better performance wise for my pci-e 68GS, but they dont have those advanced Vid options. So if the 9x vid filters are superior to software based filters, i will use the 9x anyway.

Here's a link about what PureVideo (nVIDIA hardware acceleration in combination with software that supports it) can provide.

Here's a list of what cards support what feature:
http://www.nvidia.com/page/purevideo_support.html

When the software supports these hardware features, they'll provide faster performance than "software" filters. The key for success is to provide the best purevideo driver support (newer 9x.xx drivers) and also the software that can support it.

Thx for your input. At least your replyed. heh

but sorry i dont think that is the answer.(unless i missed something and you can elaborate?)

i started a different thread earlyer, link -> http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=75964

witch clearifyed for me that the Image Enhancing features in the Avanced video options of the driver work software independant. and are seperate from the "Purevideo Decoder"(witch that link you showed is for, not for the driver settings) witch you can buy, and adds decoding enhancments for mpeg2/h.264/etc.. but not for example mpeg4.
