Nvidia GeForce GTX 460(GF104 GPU) supports full audio bitstreaming - Page 4

Audio support, only for bitstreaming. Decoding has significant bugs (Dolby Headphone) and limitations (no 7.1).

Well, yeah not a big deal anyway. The only problem is with 7.1 DD plus, so that's a non-issue.

I thought bitstreaming was a given when I talk about audio. Yea, for decoding, TMT3 is the best of them. PDVD10 is good, but, I'm not sure if they got their DTS-HD MA 7.1 issues worked out or not. WinDVD....I've never tried.

I'm sure at some point a solution will present itself for that problem.
post #95 of 1812
I do like the front end and interface of WinDVD though, even more than TMT3. Remote is easier to use, especially compared to standalone TMT3.
post #96 of 1812
It has some issues that could be addressed. The "7MC integration" is embarrassing at best. Nonetheless, it does a good job overall. And for the price most of us paid, well, can't really go wrong. I should really update mine to the latest build.
post #97 of 1812
Well next for me is running the battery of video tests, and if I'm comfortable enough with it all, try to fit an Accelero S1. These Palit cards though have a warranty sticker on the screws, I don't think I have seen that with any other cards I've had before.

This is not related directly i know but some of you guys might find it worth to have a look:

hmm my display is now refreshing at 23.973 and 59.949. With ATI it was always near perfect, 23.976 and 59.940

This is good news that NVIDIA finally got cards with a proper HDMI feature set out.

Now i just hope for a budget model for HTPC use..
post #101 of 1812
199 bucks is quite steep but I'm glad the audio features are finally in

That's because this is primarily a gamer card. Hopefully, we'll get the lower end models soon.

A rumor:

- GeForce GTS 455/450 (GF106): $129-179, August, replacing GTS 250, a competitor to HD 5700 series.
- GeForce ??? [could be GT 440?] (GF108): under $100, Septemeber, replacing GT 240, a competitor to HD 5600/5500 series.

On the other hand,

- Radeon HD 6xxx: October. UVD3 (MPEG-4 MVC decoder) and HDMI 1.4 are new.
post #104 of 1812
Is the Radeon 6xxx rumor based on any hard evidence? I haven't seen any half-official looking thing, yet - although i might've been blind.
But i also know that the low-end nvidia cards are not "official" yet either.

On the other hand, i still greatly prefer NVIDIA, their VP4 is superior to UVD2 any day. (Also, I'm not a big fan of 3D for home cinema, it wouldn't be a bonus for me)
post #105 of 1812
- October rumor
- Specs rumor (Bun Honma's aricles are usually very accurate. my own summary)
post #106 of 1812
Does anyone know if any of these cards will FINALLY support HDMI-CEC ?? I cannot understand why both ATI and nVidia keep avoiding this feature.
post #107 of 1812
Thanks rene for the info.

Cool, thanks! I do want the GTX 460 but I don't think it'll work well inside a Sugo SG05 w/300W PSU. The Sugo SG07 is just way too big for me.

Somehow it would seem weird to start off the new series of cards with the low-end / mid-range cards. But maybe i'm just too focused on nvidia in my mind, which always start off with the high-end models. *shrug*

All i want is a good HTPC card, preferably nvidia due to better software compat with dxva decoders, but if the arguments for any other cards are clearly superior, i'm not locked in there =)

Uh... The high-end's already in place:
GTX 480 (GF100)
GTX 470 (GF100)
GTX 465 (GF100)
GTX 460 (GF104)

He's talking about the rumored new ATI cards.
post #112 of 1812
HD 6xxx is not a new GPU architecture, it's a minor revision of HD 5xxx, based on the same 40 nm process. So AMD could release whichever segment first...

Ah... Gotcha.

By the way, looks like the GTS 450 just got a bit more official:

Do you know if there are plans for an IGP update from either AMD or Nvidia? I'd read about "Fusion" from AMD at one point, but hadn't heard much.
I would love a bitstreaming on-board option to compete with the intel i3/i5 variant.

post #115 of 1812
Fusion APU, with "Redwood" (HD 5500/5600) integrated, will be delayed by two months. (The original plan was revenue shipment in Q4 2010, official launch early in 2011.)

NVIDIA won't release a chipset any longer.

Intel Sandy Bridge is still expected in Q4 2010.
post #116 of 1812
An HD 5500 IGP with (software based) Hybrid CrossFireX with another HD5xxx would be great. Would allow full post processing and maybe the power for 3-D EyeFinity and I'm leaning on the belief that Fusion will allow full onboard Dolby TrueHD / DTS-MA bitstreaming (since Intel is doing that already). Onboard IGP with bitstreaming and proper 24Hz would make all the HTPC builders very pleased.

A 3-way Hybrid CrossFireX setup with these two cards (and the HD 5500 IGP) would be interesting to me.
http://www.sapphiretech.com/presenta...000101&pid=346 (to allow EyeFinity)
and
http://www.sapphiretech.com/presenta...000101&pid=349 Why couldn't Sapphire put 1GB (GDDR5) on the EyeFinity version above like this one and just make the ultimate ATI HTPC card when a fanless heatsink is attached?
(would prefer this fanless heatsink on both though: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presenta...000101&pid=344 )

Hello Sapphire, are you listening? You have 4 HD 5500 cards that if you combined them you would have this card done! (take your 1GB GDDR5 at 4000MHz HDMI model, switch the VGA port with a DisplayPort to add EyeFinity like your DP model and switch the cooler to the Ultimate fanless heatsink model, OC the core to 650MHz like your OC version and bingo.) Maybe you could bump the GDDR5 to 2GB like this Club3D version?: http://www.club3d.nl/products/produc...product_id=324

Both cards overclocked to HD 5570 speed of 650MHz (graphics core) like this one: http://www.pro-clockers.com/videocar...n.html?start=2 (but keeping the GDDR memory at 4GHz).

Ditto , it's about damn time.

OK, the first trial results with 460:

MPC-HC:

with Default Direct Sound Device:

THD,
DTSHD-MA, DTSHD-HR bitstreaming is OK.

with ReClock:

PCM streaming is OK without downsampling.


Corel WinDVD 10:

THD,
DTSHD-MA, DTSHD-HR bitstreaming is OK.

PCM streaming downsamples to 48/16 as usual.

No edid override issues with my Denon 1910.

I have the eVGA 460GTX 1GB Superclocked arriving on tue/wed, so no go on the TMT or PowerDVD Bitstream?

That model has the external fan (blower). Will you let us know how loud it really is? Check and see if it looks like the fan can be change to an after market fan such as the Noctua or Scythe (much quieter).
I'm thinking the same card for myself.
