CapFrameX lately examined the AV1 efficiency of Intel’s Arc A770 graphics card towards NVIDIA & AMD GPUs at 4K & 8K resolutions. Three different playing cards, together with NVIDIA’s RTX 4090, RTX 3080 & AMD RX 6800 XTwere additionally examined, & I attempted my system to see how the efficiency compares between all 5 graphics playing cards.

CapFrameX used the 8K video on YouTube, “Japan in 8K 60fps.” For this take a look at, CapFrameX must be set appropriately in order that it may obtain the data from Google Chrome’s net browser.

To provoke correct capturing on the CapFrameX software program, the applying entry “chrome” must be faraway from the applying’s ignored record to seek out the suitable seize and supply the efficiency outcomes. Additionally, whereas taking part in the video, right-clicking on the video will pull up a menu record, and clicking on “Stats for nerds” will even should be supplied in order that we all know the statistics.

The playing cards examined within the CapFrameX AV1 take a look at had been:

  • Intel Arc A770 Graphics
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090
  • AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

I wished to see how my system additionally landed in comparison with the 4 playing cards examined and supplied the outcomes alongside CapFrameX outcomes for my NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.

Listed below are the statistics from CapFrameX and my statistics to offer a greater comparability:

The primary outcomes of the AV1 testing of the 5 graphics playing cards confirmed the typical frames per second and the 1% and 0.2% percentile FPS of every GPU. The one with the darker colour is from their take a look at, whereas mine is supplied beneath their outcomes.

Whereas Intel was the frontrunner of the take a look at, providing 60 fps, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 4090, and my RTX 3080 every supplied the identical 59.9 fps for the video. The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is in final place, offering 55.8 fps, a distinction of 4.1 to 4.2 fps within the 4K decision 60 fps assessments.

Subsequent, the 8K decision of the “Japan in 8K 60fps” video is examined.

The Intel Arc A770 Graphics stays on the highest of the record concerning AV1 encoding, producing 59.9 fps within the 8K video. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, 3090, and my 3080 are available in at 57.6, 56.8, and 56.7 fps (respectively), exhibiting that NVIDIA maintains the help of AV1 encoding higher than the final place AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT, which stuttered in at 22 fps.

CapFrameX additionally supplied the Chrome AV1 8K video decoding body occasions, which exhibits that the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT emitted large spikes of over 800ms each 4 seconds of video. On the identical time, the Intel Arc A770 Graphics remained stage through the take a look at with a minor improve on the finish, which is negligible in comparison with AMD.

It’s famous that Intel does have native AV1 {hardware} acceleration of their Arc collection graphics, so the outcomes are favorable for the {hardware}, exhibiting wonderful efficiency in 4K and 8K resolutions. Additionally, it’s nice to see that NVIDIA handles AV1 acceleration for its {hardware} fairly effectively within the two resolutions examined. Hopefully, we are going to see a change with AMD and the brand new RDNA 3 structure, and this take a look at could also be repeated at the moment. NVIDIA alternatively must get its driver working with the intention to showcase the complete potential of their twin AV1 encoders featured on the Ada Lovelace GPU lineup.
