AMD Demonstrates Triple-Core In Blu-ray Test

AMD sent word this morning of product demos with their new 780G chipset and platform that we recently covered here for you in full detail.  At the time, we provided a detailed look at the capabilities of AMD's IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor) in gaming and 3D rendering scenarios, as well as their new Hybrid CrossFire technology but we didn't get a chance to cover HD video decode and playback performance just yet.  We'll be following up on the product's performance ourselves shortly with an update to the original article but in the mean time, AMD has this to show us this morning...

 

What's perhaps most interesting here, beyond the fact that AMD's new 780G provides excellent performance in HD video processing and CPU offload, is that the system they're providing the demonstration on, as you'll see in the video, is running a triple-core Phenom.  Of course CPU utilization looks relatively low with the 780G providing much of the horsepower for the Blu-ray decode but it's nice to see those three cores running performance monitor.

I really love how Youtube has been excessively slow lately. It is everywhere I've tried in Maryland, at least. I can't even watch the video because it won't load.

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't a BIG plus for SSE4 instructions is the ability for HD rendering/encoding etc...Does this tri-core CPU support SSE4?

i think it does, as AMD was going for SSE4 with their next release now phenom, while intel is bypassing it for SSE5

I thought that intel was jumping into SSE4 with their Centrino-based 45nm line that just came/is-coming out (more mobile-based I believe)....

 Penryn has SSE 4.1...So it's here

But honestly, I'm not surprised with the HD decoding of the 780 G..It's basically a integerated r6x0 core..Which we all know, current cards with a UVD do wonders with HD decoding. I tested a q6600 rig with a HD movie, even @ 3ghz, the q6600 lagged at one part...Once I dumped the video into a HD capable powerDVD...the cpu usage dropped to around 2-4 percent. Everything was flawless also....The current batch of UVD cards are truly fantastic in terms of h264 decoding. ^_^...

Regarding the Tri-Core's and phenom, they all have SSE 4....

i still like intel better

Are you talking about rendering, encoding, or playback?

 Playback. Only playback...It was the movie 1408...at a certain segment, with him talking to his exwife via his laptop, it would begin to lag witht he noise they show on the screen. Once I played it via a HD gpu decoding capable player (power dvd), the cpu usage dropped to 2-4 percent, and that lag in that segment was gone.

ok ok ... and tell us ? what was the GPU that was running along with the intel system ? Oh come on dont try and make fool of the world man ... just try the core2duo 8400-8500 series or the 6850......come on come on......we've all seen how superbly slow is the amd quad core against intel beasts......

iNTEL + nVIDIA = the best pcs ever for a lifetime !

wishing you good new innovations amd ... i'd never waste my money on an amd processor esepcially on a AMD Chipset !!!!!

Okay Fanboi.

Were you Intel and Nvidia back when the Pentium 4's competed against Athlon 64s?  Or when the Radeon 9700 Pro launched and smashed the GeForce 4 Ti4600?

Intel is better in most areas now.  Ati is still pretty competetive with Nvidia.  Times always change, who knows what will happen in the next couple years.  At least be happy AMD exists to keep down your Intel prices.
