Hi Gary,

Tried running nvclock, but I get an error about reading the bios and it gives me a huge negative number…

I will say this… Gary is correct in that it does *barely* just meet the requirements… I have noticed if I get a lot of on screen elements going on top of the video, the video can get choppy with the highest deinterlacing settings… If I drop down to just Temporal de-interlacing then of course it doesn’t hiccup or get choppy at all.

In the end these Asus EEBox’s were a good trade off for me… I can live with just temporal, or a bit of choppiness with on screen elements displayed when using Temporal+Advanced for the form factor of the machine. Not to mention regular Temporal De-interlacing looks light years better to me, than anything my Intel NUC could do using openGL or VAAPI.
