HQV Benchmark 2.0 Analysis – ATi, nVidia and Intel

The first section is based around Video Conversion tests, followed up by a long series of Cadence related tests and lastly we get to examine colour upscaling errors.

These tests focus on the performance of the cadence detector at varying speed of motion. They are more severe stress tests than the Stadium 2:2 and 3:2 on the last couple of pages.

When the globe is moving through the right side of the screen, it is displayed with a 3:2 cadence, while on the left, the cadence is 2:2. A scoring guide is provided on the screen, with a green zone that begins right at the cadence boundary, a yellow zone which starts a half-second later, and a red zone that begins one second into the cadence zone.

Response time – Transition 3:2 Lock (Score either 5, 2 or 0)
Scores less than 1/2 second to transition from 2:2 to 3:2 – Scores 5
Takes more than 1/2 second to transition from 2:2 to 3:2. – Scores 2
Takes more than one second to transition from 2:2 to 3:2– Scores 0

Transition to 3:2 Lock

The G210 and G220 have a problem with this test which will hope to see fixed in a later driver. The Intel GMA X4500 also puts in a poor showing with this specific test. ATI solutions all score 5/5.
