I presently have an i3 2100, coupled with a Nvidia GT430 which seems to produce high levels of 'dropped frames', using the madVR, mpc-hc, SVP combination. Would you recommend the above combo as the minimum requirement or is there a combination down the scale which will work as effectively.
3570K + HD 7850 or GTX 650 Ti is a good choice for almost all videophile purposes (madVR Jinc3+AR / Jinc3+AR, SVP, 4K; except for SD/HD to 4K UHD Jinc upscaling), or HD 7870 / GTX 660 for Jinc4+AR / Jinc4+AR. Here are some results.
- Core i5-3570K (default clock)
- DDR3-1600 2 x 2GB
- Radeon HD 7850 / GTX 650 Ti
- MPC-HC, LAV Video Decoder 0.53.2 (DXVA2CB [DXVA2 native won't work if ffdshow is inserted]), ffdshow raw video filter, madVR 0.85.1 (Jinc3+AR / Jinc3+AR
), SVP 3.1.2 (default profiles)
