Wow that’s a fascinating article Kerry.
Thanks for posting that.
The interactive quality comparison shots are excellent and that Inception still is particularly revealing.
I had difficulties telling the difference when you get to the slow x264 2 pass version and the last two I couldn’t see any differences at all.
2 hours for the overkill x264 very slow 2 passes isn’t all that excessive either.
So it seems investing in a fast CPU was the right choice as I debated whether to get a faster graphics card or put more money into the CPU when I bought my current machine.
