{option} CoveAVC + CUDA vs. high end CPU

Postby papaTRIX » Fri Jul 10, 2009 5:33 pm

hi > just curious on what people thought about using (CoveAVC + CUDA) vs. (high end CPU) when using ps3ms. i'm currently using an intel i7 oc-ed @ 4Ghz, 12Gb ram, geforce gtx 280 on win7 x64 7100 and have had no issues thus far, even though my cpu usage goes sky high. post on coveavc + cuda got me wondering if i should try it.
ps3ms @ 1.50.0 (b2) :: gigabit lan :: (i7 920 @ 4Ghz | 12G ram | geforce gtx 280) w7u sp1 x64

If you don't have a cpu bottleneck yet there's no benefit... You may save some energy but you have to spend some dollars for coreavc...
I provide NO application support via PM, so please post your question to the forum.

well in your case you can try both, but you gota update the nvidia drivers to the latest and spend some cash for coreavc like otmanix said.

I must say though coreavc + cuda = much less cpu usage
