  1. I’m building a new AMD desktop, for graphics thou I wonder if I should go for an NVIDIA GTX 1660 SUPER or an AMD RX 5600 XT ? I will be watching lots of 1080p stuff and I have a 144hz monitor.

  2. I notice the installer defaults to “disable madvr and set evr-cp” is this recommended only for low end pc’s or is it a good replacement for madvr?

  3. I noticed this is geared towards desktops, is there any recommendation for laptops? Or should I just try the different modes and see what works best?

    I switched to a new laptop and was looking into improving the resolution of what I watch now that I can (last device was over 6 years old). I was using MPC-BE before, but the new laptop has an Intel i7 10510U and an Nvidia MX250 so there’s headroom for better rendering or video decoding (no 24p to 60p smooth video kind of interpolation probably, but still) and I don’t mind switching to another player.

    What I watch I’d say is a mix of regular film and anime, max I have around is 10-bit 1080p H.264 and H.265 encodes. I don’t plan on getting any higher than that because I’ll be watching either in the laptop’s screen or a 1080p monitor.

    • With that laptop, you probably can get away with using software decoding and also madVR’s high-end preset.
