So, recently I poke around the internet searching for information regarding dxva HEVC.
I only found 2 information ; Intel Haswell HEVC dxva with beta driver and AMD HSA/Opencl assisted decoding?
I am planning to upgrade my HTPC, (very old pentium dual core E2160 with ATI HD4350, PSU exploded and took away everything with it).
Of course, Intel haswell offering kinda expensive compared to AMD richland (yeah, a8-7600 kaveri still missing in action, have to make do with what available). So, I need to future proof against the computational extensive hevc.
Thus, anyone with amd richland apu can visit this site http://xhevc.com/en/downloads/downloadCenter.jsp
and download plus install Strongene PC OpenCL HEVC/H.265 Decoder and report back the CPU + GPU utilization (windows task manager + gpuz screenshot?) after running it with a 4K hevc video from http://www.elecard.com/en/download/videos.html
According to release note (copy paste time) :
1. This version is an accelerated version powered by heterogeneous computing technology and written by OpenCL. The OpenCL version is developed jointly by Strongene and AMD;
2. This version is only for the individual test of HEVC decoding;
3. Compatible with the reference software HM12.0; 4. The OpenCL Version automatically detects the hardware capability to enable OpenCL acceleration. This version supports the OpenCL devices like AMD HD 5000 and above discrete GPUs, and AMD APUs (like Richland and Kaveri).
Those with ATI/AMD HD 5000 and above might wanna test it as well......
