Using other features of the 9800Pro...

#1
Maybe this one is for Sazar:

I was just reading about some of the neat things the Radeon 9800Pro can do particularly in regards to video. The ATI demo shows that the card can perform real-time de-blocking and removal of the "weave" effect in video, especially highly compressed streaming video. What software do I need to be able to take advantage of such a thing? Or is this something only for an AIW model?

Sure, high frame rates in games with AA and AF turned up is nice, but I'd like to think $400 went to something other than that. :)

what you are describing is fullstream... and takes place while watching divx based clips...

pretty much standard hardware fare in everything raddy 9000 and above...

Ha! I knew you'd be the one to answer this question. :D

So, no special software needed? Or do I have to use a certain viewer/player to "enable" the functionality?

I've got the codecs installed already, so I use WMP to watch them. I was just wondering if I had to use an ATI app to utilize it, and apparently the answer is "no". :)

I'm not noticing a whole lot of difference, but it's hard to tell unless I have two PC's side by side. I guess it's like most demos: the manufacturer makes it seem like it will be better than it is in real life. :rolleyes:

if you are watching a divx movie that is pixelated... it WILL clean up the screen...

its like the videosoap thinger in the all in wonder cards... the image quality for my TV thinger is the best I have ever seen... incl my hauppage... it is extremely clear and a lot of the artifacts that appear in an anolog leech of a digital signal are gone... the picture quality is basically the same as on a digital feed... this is only on a few channels mind... most are the same quality as before... but the ones that were messed up before are perfect now...

there is a difference... you probably just need to see a pixelated divx cap on one gpu and then on yours to notice the difference :)
