  1. 3 monitors with Wallpaper Engine + GPU video decoding, min GPU?


    I have a r9 290 and three 1080p monitors hooked up to it. If I enable GPU decoding in wallpaper engine with all three desktops set to a video wallpaper things get super stutterry (same thing happens if I open three 1080p videos at the same time.)

    I'm hoping to upgrade my GPU, but I don't really need the latest and greatest. At what point do GPUs handle three (or more) 1080p video decoding streams at the same time? I can't seem to find any details on that. The price difference between a rx 380 and a rx 390 in Canada is minimal so I'd just get the newer one, but i can't confirm if it will fix that problem?


    thanks.

    :)

  2. Cripplingly High GPU in Windows 10

    Dave, the two processes apparently hogging all the GPU were desktop windows manager and client server runtime process.

    However, when I list them now, after numerous reboots and reinstalls, no apps show up as consuming GPU, yet GPU is at 80-100%. I think this is because the apps are only consuming the 3D component of the GPU and not the others - copy, decode, processing or
    shared memory usage?

    I've spent some time on Google and it seems to be a fairly common symptom but none of the suggested solutions are effective.

    It doesn't seem to be linked to any significant changes, I even tried uninstalling the most recent windows updates.

    Any thoughts?

  3. GPU is fine.... Bios is fine.... Why can't Windows 10 detect my second monitor?

    Now my second monitor isn't even cloned... no signal... windows 10 cannot detect a second monitor and suggests a different GPU... My GPU can support up to 3 monitors... again... ran every diagnostic on my BIOS and GPU know to man. Thank you for your assistance...
    very irritated by this simple problem.

    GPU

    Hi Michael

    Open Device Manager (accessible by right clicking your Start Button)

    Expand the Display Adapters section

    You should see your GPU listed, along with possibly an integrated graphics option

    If that is no listed there:

    Boot into BIOS (start your system, then on the manufacturers screen, repeatedly press the appropriate key (usually F2) to enter BIOS

    Under System Information, you should find your GPU listed

    If you still cannot find the GPU listing, what is the Make and exact Model No. of your PC - that will be printed on a sticker on the bottom casing . ..
