HQV Benchmark 2.0 Analysis – ATi, nVidia and Intel

Overview:
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.

Scoring:
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: 5:5 FPS Animation (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

A similar result to the first 2 in this series of testing. ATI score full marks, with the two high end nVidia discrete solutions keeping up.
