Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 is one of the finest solutions for the Blu-Ray experience on Windows and we found this software to work perfectly with this chipset. We tested with the Bluray Disc of Avatar, one of our favourite sci-fi films in recent years.
Average load with our bluray disc was around 10 percent. The CPU has a huge percentage of free cycles left for multitasking.
We recorded CPU demand over a specific period of time to get a ‘real world’ rolling scale of activity. The reference clocked Core i7 990x Extreme Edition processor is barely being pushed, ensuring a first class HD media experience.
