Neat Video 5 SR slower than expected on MBP 2021

Post by Totemoiidesuka »

With a MBP 2021 (M1 Pro 10 cores, 16 GPU cores, 16 GB RAM), Neat Video 5.4.7. SR performs not as well as expected.

NeatVideos's performance optimization says:

1 core: 0.76 fps
2: 1.59
3: 2.21
4: 2.66
5: 3.02
6: 3.36
7: 3.38
8: 3.73
9: 3.54
10: 3.47

But on my MBA 2020 (M1 8 cores, 16 GB RAM), I get the following:

1 core: 0.76 fps
2: 1.55
3: 2.16
4: 2.78
5: 2.96
6: 3.09
7: 3.24
8: 3.35

I would have expected a higher difference in favor of the M1 Pro.

Also, when can we expect the M1 GPU Cores to be utilized by NeatVideo? A colleague's iMac 2018 outperforms the above by a full frame by using its Vega GPU only.

Please post the complete log from Optimize Settings window in both cases.

We expect the GPU support to become available on M1 Pro/Max GPU in the near future, hopefully before the end of this year.

Thanks for the answer, that's good news, and here you are (I realize these values are different from before. I still feel the advantage of the MBP should be greater):

Thank you for the details. Yes, the results from Pro seem a bit lower than expected. I guess there may be some background processes running on that machine. Perhaps even background rendering of FCP. I would expect the best speed in that test on the Pro to be closer to 5-5.5 fps.
