ATI Catalyst 9.12 fixes DXVA flicker issue on Radeon cards, improves performance!

sean_mcnamara Sean McNamara, now with 100% less annoying flicker.

When I first tried DXVA (DirectX Video Acceleration, a technology to offload the CPU by letting the video card render videos.) on my ATI Radeon HD 5770 I noticed a weird issue that would seem to change the brightness of whatever I was watching in-between shots. An angle change would often mean that the brightness would either hop up or go down a few notches. It’s very hard to explain this phenomenon but it was highly disturbing. I didn’t bother looking into it more so I don’t know if only specific software/OS’es were affected, but what I do know is that after installing the Catalyst 9.12 update I have watched an entire episode of Nip/Tuck without any issues, and so it seems resolved. 🙂 (At least in MPC Home Cinema.)

The 9.12 update also boosts an impressive (“up to”) 9% performance increase in 3DMark Vantage and OpenGL 3.2 extension support.

However, they forgot to fix this.

In other news…
You shall listen to this song, because it be awesome.
