nV News heeft een preview in elkaar getimmerd van Video 2000 Pro, het nieuwe benchmarking proggie van MadOnion. Video 2000 pro is geschikt om de DVD Playback en MPEG2 encoding performance van je systeem te meten en zal nog deze maand gereleased worden. Hieronder wat meer info:
Video2000 is the first benchmarking tool to evaluate cards based on their DVD playback and MPEG2 encoding measured against the total of the system in regards to AGP performance and CPU power. As such, this test will fit at home with power users who weigh greater importance on video cards and CPUs that can crunch digital video, vs the gamer who can use a tool to report on a better system or game tweak job.
However, with an expected count of 10 million home and computer DVD player sales this year as well as the imminent arrival of 1GHz processors and 700+ MHz CeleronB sub-$1K systems, it makes perfect sense that MadOnion.com releases a diagnostic tool that also appeals to home users. Although we all wish that we owned Dolby Digital and DTS home theatre systems with 54" High-Definition TVs (HDTV) in our sunken and sound-proofed dens, the reality is that for a fraction of the cost, our current systems can do it nearly as well.
Video2000 will help all of us to tweak our systems and guide us with an online database - ensuring that we can achieve sync'ed and flicker-free digital video. Video2000 won't correct your video card, driver, or CPU/motherboard deficiencies, but it'll find them with overwhelming detail and accuracy.
