Default Re: GeForce 8200, VDPAU: 1080p is a no-go

If you have an AMD CPU, please be aware that when the CPU is running at a low speed (due to the decoding load being shifted to the GPU) the bus frequency will also be lowered, which reduces the memory bandwidth available to the GPU (since an 8200 is a shared memory system), which negatively affects decoding performance.

If you lock your CPU frequency to a higher value, this may alleviate the symptom.

Search this forum or Google for more details.
