Media Playback

To measure the video decoding capabilities of the Radeon X1900 XTX with various formats, we carried out a few tests using the popular Windows Media Player 10 (with the patch that enables DirectX video acceleration for WMV HD content available here) and our standard selection of video clips:

  • Magic of Flight (WMV HD, 1080p)
  • A DivX clip, 640x480
  • Starship Troopers DVD, PAL

The CPU load during video playback:

As we see, there is no substantial difference between the Radeon X1900 XTX and the predecessor – the Radeon X1800 XT when it comes to video playback.

We have not checked the H.264 decoding intentionally this time as to do so we needed a decoder by Cyberlink that can take advantage of the H.264 decoding capabilities of the Radeon X1000 family. The decoder is currently available for additional fees only, just like Nvidia’s PureVideo decoder.
