eVGA GTX 460 768MB Superclocked Review

HQV Benchmark 2.0 is an updated version of the original tool and it consists of various video clips and test patterns which are designed to evalute motion correction, de-interlacing, decoding, noise reduction, detail enhancement and film cadence detection.

There are two versions of the program, standard definition on DVD and high definition on Bluray. As our audience will be concentrating on HD content so will we.

This has a total of 39 video tests which is increased from 23 in the original and the scoring is also up from a total of 130 to 210. As hardware and software gets more complicated, the software has been tuned to make sure we can thoroughly maximise our analysis.

When we released our original HQV 2.0 Analysis weeks ago we mentioned that nVidia would be starting to enhance their drivers for media settings and we are pleased to report that we documented improvements with the Vertical text scrolling aspect of the HQV analysis. The GTX 460 is equal to the GTX 480 in regards to IQ, and due to the much lower power drain and size the GTX 460 is going to be a fantastic media board. nVidia still have a way to go to catch ATI but they are already making progress with the new drivers.
