Real-life MPEG and VC1 HD samples do not decode in real-time with this setup (H264 works fine even for bitrates higher than level 4.1 and using de-interlacing).

Looks like a cpu bottleneck since MPEG and VC1 are partially accelerated on this GPU. For such a cpu, i think a G98 (with complete acceleration of MPEG, H264 and VC1) would be a better choice.

It's running 185.18.14 which is supposed to fix powermizer issues,
plus I have in xorg.conf Option "RegistryDwords" "PowerMizerLevelAC=0x1"

supposed to force performance mode... to no available

plus it's surprising to get good results on the deinterlacers but not on the decoding

Ah, that was the needed magick. I'll bet that should be in the ReadMe.

Quadro 1600M
Code:
SURFACE GET BITS: 640.084 M/s
SURFACE PUT BITS: 567.362 M/s

MPEG DECODING (1920x1080): 62 pic/s
H264 DECODING (1920x1080): 43 pic/s
VC1 DECODING (1440x1080): 82 pic/s

MIXER WEAVE (1920x1080): 878 frames/s
MIXER BOB (1920x1080): 1286 fields/s
MIXER TEMPORAL (1920x1080): 282 fields/s
MIXER TEMPORAL_SPATIAL (1920x1080): 88 fields/s
So am I understanding that this is fast enough to do Advanced2X deinterlacing for 1080p?

And am I understanding that it is not fast enough to decode H.264?

looks fast enough to me for everything.

your typical HD h264 content is from a bluray, which is 24 pic/s ; your card can do twice that.

OK, so satellite is 29.970 interlaced, fair enough my decoder can handle that. But ATSC is 59.970 progressive, and the decoder is rated at 62 pic/s. However this is at 1080 and my sample is 720. I guess this is OK.

I've just updated my nVidia driver from 185.18.10 to 185.18.14 and here are the results:

Quadro 1600M (HP 8710w laptop):
Code:
SURFACE GET BITS: 528.471 M/s
SURFACE PUT BITS: 474.799 M/s

MPEG DECODING (1920x1080): 60 pic/s
H264 DECODING (1920x1080): 43 pic/s
VC1 DECODING (1440x1080): 83 pic/s

MIXER WEAVE (1920x1080): 891 frames/s
MIXER BOB (1920x1080): 1304 fields/s
MIXER TEMPORAL (1920x1080): 286 fields/s
MIXER TEMPORAL_SPATIAL (1920x1080): 90 fields/s
9300 IGP (Asus P5N7A-VM mobo)
Code:
SURFACE GET BITS: 984.095 M/s
SURFACE PUT BITS: 1112.54 M/s

MPEG DECODING (1920x1080): 60 pic/s
H264 DECODING (1920x1080): 53 pic/s
VC1 DECODING (1440x1080): 67 pic/s

MIXER WEAVE (1920x1080): 297 frames/s
MIXER BOB (1920x1080): 451 fields/s
MIXER TEMPORAL (1920x1080): 109 fields/s
MIXER TEMPORAL_SPATIAL (1920x1080): 33 fields/s
I am surprised to find that the 9300 performs worse than the 1600M. It is supposed to be so much better.

And I am not clear on how to apply these findings to whether these deinterlacers are fast enough for Advanced2X?

And disturbingly, when I close the final window for qvdpautest on my 9300 system, it locks up the machine entirely. I have to power down and up, to get it back.

@Quantumstate

If you can provide a 720p MPEG2 sample, i would add 720p mpeg decoding test. (never seen any until now)

Uploading now, but my ISP has upload throttled to 40Kbs, so this 194MB file will take 6 hours. I would fire Queerwire, except they are so cheap and download is 1.5Mbps.

Hilary Duff - With love 720p (mpeg2, 280MB)
http://www.hotshare.net/en/file/92795-2898639442.html

- or -
GTA4 trailer 720p (mpeg4, 19MB)
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5EH4GH4Z
You can convert it to mpeg2 by mencoder.
$ mencoder 1280x720.mp4 -o new.mpg \
-oac copy \
-ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg2video:vbitrate=3200

I played "Hilary Duff - With love 720p".
$ mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffmpeg12vdpau Hilary_Duff-With_Love-HD_720p\ -279MB.mpg
The CPU usage is higher than 1080p MGS4 trailer playback (532MB).

I suggest that it's never a good idea to do any transcoding for a purpose such as this. The testing ought to be done with the TS just exactly as it comes from the provider, as I am (slowly) uploading.

I notice in my tests above that 185.18.10 decodes faster than 185.18.14, but it deinterlaces slower. I'd rather have faster decoding. Is powermizer fixed in .10?

No VDPAU PowerMizer issues were fixed in 185.18.10
