how to enable Quick Sync in Windows system, bios and Vegas Pro 15

marcinzm wrote on 9/24/2017, 1:19 PM

Hello!

 

I have a Intel i9-7900X CPU which I think supports Intel Quick Sync enhancement.

How can I turn it on in Vegas Pro 15 Suite?
Is it turned on by default or I should turn it on?
Do I need to do something in bios (I have Asus motherboard).

I have Windows 10 Home system.

 

I didn`t find any explanation of it on forum.

Can you help me?

Regards

Marcin from Poland

Start with the manual (pdf) for your motherboard.  Usually easy.  Maybe 'google' query.

Is the integrated GPU in the Intel CPU the only GPU in your system? If yes, and your monitor is connected to the integrated GPU and you have the Intel GPU drivers installed you should be good to go.

If you have an Nvidia/AMD card and the monitor is connected to the video card, the integrated GPU is probably disabled, even if enabled in the BIOS. If no monitor is connected the integrated GPU often disabled itself. In a multiple GPU system you need to have the intel video drivers installed as well as your Nvidia/AMD GPU. It is, or has been, possible to trick the integrated GPU to be active without anything connected to it.

Here is a link to an article with some information on that particular topic.

Are you certain the i9-7900X has an internal GPU?

I did not think to check that. The 10-core i9 7900x does not seem to have an integrated GPU.

I was having trouble getting quick sync to work with my R9 390, it would crash my system if I had my preview monitor (2nd monitor) attached to my motherboards video out, and I couldn't get 2560x1400 out of my motherboards HDMI to try to get Quick Sync to work on my Primary display. Following NormanPCN's link, I was able to activate a phantom monitor with my onboard Intel GPU and now everything works. The link shows a Windows 7 system (I think) and it's slightly different in Windows 10, but basically the same. Thanks NormanPCN.

Good to hear the technique still works and with Windows 10. I tested that some time ago. Hardware Quicksync AVC encoding was supported back in the Vegas 12 days via the Sony AVC encoder. I removed the setup leaving my iGPU disabled because I just did not want any possibility of Intel and Nvidia/AMD punching the other in the nose causing compatibility things to happen.

Yes, I'm glad it works, too. The Quick Sync render time I get for the old Red Car test gives me the best time I've ever had. And, I also get the preview benefits from my R9 390.

You always get the benefit of your R9 390. A render as, is nothing but a best/good full "preview" followed by sending the frames to the file encoder (whatever that may be).

i am having problem here, i cant detect my intel internal graphic .

i enable igpu in bios, but i didn't connect my hdmi to onboard motherboard, i connect it to my gtx 1060 direct .

i dont know why, when i connect my monitor to onboard motherboard with hdmi, the display not show.

Depending on your BIOS you may also need to select the iGPU as your main/boot GPU. Another option is to temporarily remove the GTX1060, boot the system and see if it works.

what motherboard is in your computer? Can you take pictures of the bios screen(s)? what CPU is in that system? Not all have iGPUs.

Ok. There are two places in the BIOS with settings related to the iGPU of the 8700k CPU. On page 31 there is "Initial Display Output", set it to "IGFX". On page 34 set "Internal Graphics" to "Enabled". I would also raise the values for "DVMT Pre-Allocated" and "DVMT Total Gfx Mem" to their maximum values.

If that doesn't do it, remove the GTX1060 from the system and reboot. How is the monitor connected to the GTX1060? Via HDMI too?

NVENC should be ok than. I am not sure if the 980 is well supported, I believe some users had issues with it. I tested a 1080Ti and NVENC, it was quite ok, on par with my GTX580 with CUDA rendering.

If a 1080Ti is merely on par with a GTX580 for encode performance, then something is wrong with the application implementing this. There is no comparison between the two in terms of performance, and the 1080Ti is generally going to give you better quality output, as well.

This says more about VEGAS than the comparative encode performance of those GPUs.

I have an [asus] z370 board with a Coffee Lake and a 1060 , 2 hdmi monitors (4K&1080). I ended up disabling my iGPU in Bios, and currently run everything off the GTX, as the first tests were a crashathon and didn't deliver the speeds I was expecting (either). Rendering via nvenc...will try again with the next update after v321

Well, Vegas uses CUDA only for rendering, not for timeline preview which is still OpenCL/GL. The MC AVC CUDA encoder was written by Mainconcept but never updated for cards after the GTX5xx series. Do other NLEs use CUDA for preview? I know that some OFX can and do use CUDA but most support OpenCL/GL which why I think an AMD card, aside from rendering, is still better for timeline performance.
