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 recent AMD/NVIDIA hardware, just install the latest drivers then tweak the display settings to the preferred level and then run PowerDVD 11 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 1% for Blu-Ray 3D hitting a maximum of 2.6%.
For our web performance test both cards perform well and even though the results are not quite as good as Blu-Ray 3D we still see some very low CPU use.
