Dear All, I recently purchased a HIS Radeon HD 3870 card. Its great for gaming and has given me much better results at the 1080p (1920x1080) resolution I use for all my gaming (with a Samsung 46M87BD) then my older nVidia 7800GTX. As you can see that I have my PC attached to a large 1080p display, I also like to watch some 1080p video clips I have downloaded off the net (mostly TV shows and other HD demonstrations). They all play well in the Window Media Player 10 (using Combined Community Pack) as well as in VLC (most of the times, not always). WMP10 usually requires 80-90% CPU while playing a 1080p clip but plays it perfectly. It only seems to use 4-6% of GPU while playing. I wanted to know if there is a way to offload more on to the GPU while playing such HD clips. I believe there is UVD on the 3870 and it should be able to accelerate High Definition Video. I have Catalyst 8.1 installed with CCC. Regards and thanks.
