I have a computer branded FitPC3 that I am using as a file server, here are the specs:
- CPU: AMD G-T40N (Dual-core) 1.00 Ghz (CPU-Z shows 1.33 Ghz)
- GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6290 (384-MB DDR3 memory) + HDMI port
- MEM: 4-GB Memory (DDR3)
(full CPU-Z/GPU-Z reports available)
It has Windows 8 installed and it can play some 720p videos, depending how they're compressed, even when it can play them fairly OK it still chops during fast motion scenes..
I'm using Media Player Classic.
I tried to strip Windows to the max, stopped all unnecessary services, removed features, followed many performance enhancing guides..
I'm looking for advice on how to increase video playback performance, I'm thinking of getting a USB-to-HDMI adapter that supports 1080p resolution, example:
I wonder if it's going to bypass the weak video card in the PC and use the USB converter adapter instead. Is that possible?
