Re: GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

Hi all, Bit of an update, after a number of windows updates, the issue has got better, but not completely gone. There seems to be a GPU memory leak within firefox, and when it fills up to a certain point, videos start to pin the gpu, and I assume that's because the GPU is trying to manage resources ...

Re: GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

No Kodi is generally fine, I haven't seen any stutter or framerate dips. On the other hand I don't have any 4k vp9 videos that I play on kodi, most of it is still x264. This video seems to stutter really bad, and its only 1080p @ 24 so there must be something else going on https://www.youtube.com/wa...

Re: GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

Interestingly the RX5500 has just been announced so I may wait until that comes out to see what it offers in terms of price, it's pitted against the 1650 so it may cause those to be price adjusted as well.

The stutter I'm experiencing isn't unbearable so I don't mind waiting a month or two.

Re: GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

This one pushes it regularly to 100% on various parts of the video at 4K, sometimes there are stutters at even 1080p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVWLD3064Ng I think there might be a compositing issue going on as well, as if I move the mouse a bit so the cursor is visible on the full screen video...

Re: GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

I knew about the ddr4 version so I made sure to get the version with gddr5, just checked GPU-Z to confirm though and it's correct.

Running a 4K output seems to be consuming 1.5gb of video ram by itself, is that normal?

Re: GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

Just updated the system to a Ryzen 3600 so unfortunately no on board video. The cpu probably has enough power to do software video decode, but something feels wrong having to disable hardware decode. It's connecting to a 4K Samsung TV at 60hz Curiously, the GPU monitor in windows is saying a 100% 3D...

Re: GTX 1650 Review compilation thread

Hello,

When you say the Asus has a 4 pin fan header available, does that mean in addition to what it uses for its fan, or do you mean it uses that 4 pin header for its cooling?

GTX 1030 Video Decode Disapointment

Hi all, I recently purchased a passively cooled 1030 for my HTPC, was from amazon warehouse with 20% discount so not a huge outlay, but never the less, I am pretty disappointed with the performance. I don't game on it, I only watch youtube and kodi, however using firefox and youtube: 4K@25 = 70 ~ 75...
