HQV Benchmark - DVD Video Quality

HQV Benchmark - DVD Video Quality
HQV is comprised of a sampling of SD video clips and test patterns that have been specifically designed to evaluate a variety of interlaced video signal processing tasks, including decoding, de-interlacing, motion correction, noise reduction, film cadence detection, and detail enhancement. As each clip is played, the viewer is required to "score" the image based on a predetermined set of criteria. The numbers listed below are the sum of the scores for each section. We played the HQV DVD using the latest version of InterVideo's WinDVD 8 Platinum Suite, with hardware acceleration enabled.


While HQV is very specific with each of its tests, the results are still influenced by the viewers interpretation.  With the ASUS M2A-VM HDMI, we found the results on par with our impressions during the initial launch of the 690 chipset.  Video quality was very good, but not quite up to the standards of the 6150.  For those looking for a premium video playback experience, an add-on graphics solution may be in order, considering ATI's and NVIDIA's current discreet card put up almost perfect scores in this test.
