HQV Benchmark 2.0 Analysis – ATi, nVidia and Intel

This chapter focuses on various cadences which can occur in video content from a plethora of sources. Severe moire is used as an indication that cadence lock has not been achieved. It is the amount of time it t akes to achieve a cadence lock, indicated by a reduction in the moire distortion, which is the scoring mechanism for this specific test.

We have to pay attention to moire pattern throughout and document the time it appears (if any). No moire is a perfect result, slight moire appearance in specific sections means the result is intermediate, and if moire is noted throughout, the graphics solution is awarded no points.

Multi Cadence: 3:2:3:2:2 24 FPS DVCam Video (Score either 5, 3 or 0)
No moire pattern observed in stands within less than 1/2 second – Scores 5
No moire pattern observed in stands within less than 1 second– Scores 3
Moire pattern observed in stands intermittently or constantly through the clip– Scores 0
