Unfortunately, it is not that stable apparently as the locking to 23.973 fps playback rate indicates. (I am yet to get Asus's version of the 'fixed BIOS' for my testbed).
As I wrote in a response to one of the comments on my review, if they get it between 23.974 and 23.978 and average out to 23.976, it will just end up like most of the other AMD and NVIDIA cards.
Could anybody be so nice to test "23.976-Slices" on his Ivy Bridge HD4000?
I'd only like to know before next buying: 1 drop/repeat each 5 1/2 minutes thru 23.973 would be NOT the problem but if there were more..
The more would be rel. fast to spot by the pattern without having to watch rare panning scenes in movies over and over:23.976-Slices, 1080p, H.264, AAC+AC3, 8:22min, low bitrate
Yes I know, should be all clean now with HD4000 but that's theory and "23.976-Slices" is practice..
a "Dell Vostro 3550" i5-2450M (Cougar Point HM67, Sandy Bridge) HD3000 I have to test here still does not like the 23 Hz setting (Intel Graphics Control Panel) at all:
23Hz log to insane 23.991 which produce rel. hard drops every 21sec
They are not
recognized by the EVR graph (red and green line jumping every 66.66sec) but only
appear as additional 21s-stutter in the ticker!
(I have to set 24Hz (display 24.001) - then only left the 40sec drops as displayed by the graph).
Screenshot, resized 70%:
Additional feature, I built in the "Pong" sounds every time the ticker bouncing (every 5 sec) from the edge.
This beeps are only 50 ms long and so you are able to "see" your video or audio delay (ie. to set the AVR audio delay appropriate to TV):
So please if only ONE could tell me if Ivy Bridge HD4000 is "clean"..
Thank you!Edited by blaubart - 8/5/12 at 1:31pm
