378.66 drivers and 10/12 bit decoding

Post by tormento » Wed Feb 15, 2017 8:23 am

New Features

[…]

Video SDK 8.0

High-bit-depth (10/12-bit) decoding (VP9/HEVC)

Has it some possible use?

Sure. We've all been waiting for Video SDK 8.0. But it's not about the decoding (CUVID can decode 10-bit HEVC already); it's about the ability to deliver a 10-bit surface on output (i.e., no dithering down to 8-bit). I'll check it out and see if they have supported that. They've said it will be in there, so I am hopeful.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I had checked last week but it was still on 7.1.9.

Still showing only Video SDK version 7 for me at nvidia.

I think they are just saying this driver is compatible with the Video SDK 8, which apparently has still not been released.

The new SDK 8 is now available and I am working on delivering high-bit depth to Avisynth.
