Intel G45 great at HD video playback

Posted on Thursday, April 10 2008 @ 00:40:24 CEST by

Taiwanese motherboard makers are praising the Intel G45 IGP chipset for its excellent HD video playback performance. The G35 had a lot of problems in this area but the new chip seems pretty good.
With that said, sources inside Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers say that G45 is looking good. When we asked about CPU offload in high bit-rate Blu-ray movies, we were told that during their early testing, they’re seeing CPU load sitting at around 20 to 35 percent on a dual-core processor—or equivalent to AMD’s recently-released 780G chipset.

The sources didn’t talk specifically about video quality enhancements, but we expect this has been improved as well, because our sources said that it was a significant update over G35. In fact, it’s so significant that one source admitted that “[G35] was an incomplete solution from our perspective, and that’s why we didn’t release a G35 board.”
