Even if you double your CPU power, the speed gain would be quite insignificant. Unless you are using very fast encoder settings.K@mpfH@mster wrote:Hi, if I have a QSV CPU, is it possible to enable QSV only for decoding but x264 for enoding to speed up but keep quality?
I'd recommend you have more patience to wait or buy a more powerful hardware. Because increasing decoding speed will certainly not give you significant advantages at all.
Just my opinion. I tried to do what you are talking about in the past as well.
Technically, DXVA decoding is doing the same job.....GPU decoding with x264 encoding.K@mpfH@mster wrote:Hi, if I have a QSV CPU, is it possible to enable QSV only for decoding but x264 for enoding to speed up but keep quality?
It's possible, but it's not ready yet. DXVA does the same thing in theory, though Intel's Media SDK generally implements it better (IIRC things have improved lately, but DXVA can sometimes still be slower than software decoding, even for HD, whereas it's almost never the case with MSDK).
