Go into Geforce experience, find the appropriate tab, and just make sure it's switched off.

It's disabled by default? You have to enable it in the GeForce experience thing. Or am I mistaking it for something else?

If you go into GeForce Experience, there should be a Shadowplay button at the top right hand corner. Click that and hit the software switch to turn it off. If you never enabled it, chances are it's already disabled.

If you want to be thorough there is a Shadowplay service you can disable too.

yeah, but why bother h22...something is all hardware dependent, and integrated into the graphics card, it's a selling point for those cards that you're not using resources to capture besides the obvious hard drive write speed.

Selling point? How's that a selling point?

sorry it's 264....It's a mp4 standard that a lot of capture software used to, and still does.....Shadowplay integrated it into the gpu in such a way that it doesn't actually use the resources it did in previous applications, meaning no impact on the graphics card's, or cpu's performance.

Well... I guess then its a selling point for all modern gpus...  0_0

nope. to the best of my knowledge amd does not have a comparable feature on it's graphics cards, if you want to do capture you either take a performance hit, or need another solution.

Ah... See there's AMD's problem. They don't advertise their competing features at all. The option is now called Highlight Clips, I think it used to be called Replay or smth. It works like shadow play as well. 

 

Not many people know about this.

yeah, sorry. 3-10% performance hit in every case. It uses the same resources that the video card uses to render it's own graphics to run the capture software. It's been around almost since they started using raptor as their driver updater.

Are you sure? Didn't AMD cards have h.264 hardware implementation on their cards as well? 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Coding_Engine If I'm not wrong, highlight clips uses the same tech as the others

 

AMD Video Codec Engine (VCE) is a full hardware implementation of the video codec H.264/MPEG-4 AVC.

10% performance hit?  :huh:

3-10%.... Depending on the card, the workload, and what it's interfacing with......

I see... Can you link those benchmarks? I haven't seen cards that take a 10% hit. And it'll be useful to others.

Any game not on their list of 200.

 

I actually can't find the benchmarks, the only thing that shows up in the first 100 or so results is the same benchmark you posted (btw, read down a couple more lines and you'll see the problems) Basically it was any game that was compatible with raptor, and thus usable with the DVR client, that wasn't listed in their top picks.

 

I will admit I pretty much stopped following this topic mid 2014 when I upgraded my computer, and wasn't using an AMD card anymore. While the performance on the 290, and 290x was about 3% or less, the performance hit on the previous cards was far greater, especially in any game that wasn't directly supported by this feature.

If by previous cards you meant pre gcn cards then yea, they do not have hardware encoders. Just like nvidia's older cards.
