Test 1: Blu-Ray: Casino Royale Chapter 2 (Chase through the construction site). Casino Royale is encoded in High Definition 1080p format using MPEG4 AVC compression (rather than Mpeg 2 which is used on older Blu-Rays) and comes on a dual layer (50 GB) disc. The aspect ratio of 2.40:1 is used with letterbox bars at the top and bottom of the 16:9 image.

For anyone reading this page that has seen our previous GeForce 8 versus Radeon 3xxx series comparisons the above results should come as no surprise. The 3850 maintains ATI’s performance lead in high definition video decoding tasks with VC-1 decoding being a strong point as always.
