In our second playback test we look at 1080p video on YouTube using Google Chrome with the latest Flash Player and GPU acceleration enabled.
3D Blu-Ray playback is a relatively simple affair on AMD hardware, just install the latest drivers then tweak the display settings to the preferred level and then run PowerDVD 10 which features support for Blu-Ray 3D and GPU acceleration for lower CPU usage.
With the latest patch applied and GPU acceleration in place the CPU usage statistic is on average less than 1% for Blu-Ray 3D hitting a maximum of 1.4% which leaves plenty of resource free for tasks to be run in the background.
For our web performance test the 6790 (and 550 Ti) perform well and even though the results are not quite as good as Blu-Ray 3D we still see some very low CPU use.
