I had 391.24 drivers prior and it finished a minute faster than this test and am now using the latest released drivers from Nvidia. I haven’t yet tried the recommended drivers as I would like to keep it as current as possible since this is my gaming rig as well at the moment.
will check out cropping, these shows don’t have black bars so it makes sense to disable it.
Also why is it using Mencoder instead of handbrake? as i understand ffmpeg is Intel and handbrake should be nvidia
I’m running test 3 and noticing 70% usage on cpu and only 6% on GPU.
Installed the recommended Win10 CUDA drivers 376.51 (just drivers no cuda stuff) and now i’m getting 32fps vs 54fps with 416.16
EDIT2: Uninstalled all my drivers including ones downloaded by Windows Update and performed a clean install, conversion time is now down to ~33 minutes and about 55fps, probably within margin of error.
It is safe to say Nvidia drivers 416.16 are working better than the previously recommended Cuda drivers.
