View Full Version : ATI and nVidia crush high-end DVD players
Yeh bit of a wank (http://www.hardware.info/en-UK/articles/am9nY2pqZA/ATI_and_nVidia_crush_highend_DVD_players/1)title for an article but it has interesting resluts!
Not what I had heard rumoured from videophiles.
Not entirely unexpected since they restricted the hardware DVD players to 480p output while the Video Cards used 1080i/1080p output.

All DVD players as well as both graphics card were tested with a Samsung Syncmaster 242 monitor (24 inch widescreen). All stand alone players were connected with a HDMI -> DVI cable and the graphics cards directly through DVI.
All DVD players were set to 480p output resolution, both graphic cards were set to 1920x1200@60 Hz, with the video windows at 1x magnification (no scaling).
For all deinterlacing tests on the standalone players the Samsung monitor was setup in 1:1 pixel mode, meaning that there was no scaling done by the screen.
So the scaling quality (or lack thereof) of both the players and the monitor was no issue in this test. Scaling is not something that can be tested with HQV, so we made sure it was of no influence to the results.
ohhh.... does that make sense comparing standard DVD resolution to fairly high resolution?
