With VP5 you can keep up with the encoder even with SD.

When I saw your post you raised my hopes until I looked at the available cards in the 500 series. The 520 is the closest things but it's a bottom end card with inadequate shaders and is inferior to my GT240 DDR5 card in all respects except for VP5. The GT545's have been made by the card manufacturers to fill the gap in the nVidia range between bottom end and mid range where the GT240 sits. Unfortunately the GT545 isn't a true 500 series card, it's a 400 series with VP4 video engine.

Then I saw the benchmarks :( 146fps at best is below the 140-160fps I can get when encoding XVids from Mpeg2. Newer Sandybridge CPU's should be able to get much higher encoding speeds than that. It's certainly an improvement but until there is a better card available than the GT520 I won't be upgrading my GT240. Unfortunately the only benchmark for the GTX550 looks incorrect and no better than a VP4 based card. That test rat video has a max bitrate of 34Mbps which is about 3x higher than what I usually encode so higher frame rates should be possible. However until a lower end 600 series card comes out I will wait.

Maybe nVidia has learned from the mistakes with the 500 series and will fill the gap between bottom end and mid range for the 600 series.

I don't think the 550 has VP5.

Oh ic now, it was only introduced with the GT520 and included with the mobile 410M. I thought that it was included with most of the 500 series going by the core numbers because I thought that they disable sections of cores that fail testing to make the lower end models.

Therefore it looks like I will have to wait until a suitable 600 series card becomes available. The 520 isn't an option.

Looks good, and of course the 680 has been out for a while.

Reinstalling of meGUI resolve the problem.
