By running applications on the GPU rather than entirely on the CPU, it has been found to reduce the time required to perform computer intensive tasks. Read on to see if either GeForce 9800 GTX+ or a Radeon HD 4770 is quicker for video conversion on Cyberlink's MediaShow Espresso application.
CyberLink MediaShow Espresso software has been designed to work with both AMD’s Unified Video Decoder (UVD) through its ATI Stream technology and NVIDIA's general purpose parallel computing architecture known as CUDA. By using AMD Stream and NVIDIA CUDA technology consumers can quickly convert digital video files for use on portable devices like the Apple iPhone, Sony PS3, and YouTube. Since CyberLink MediaShow Espresso works on both NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards it gives us a rare chance to benchmark both technologies to see which is better.
