NVIDIA Control Panel Settings

While ATI has many settings for enhancing the Image Quality of our videos, NVIDIA is a lot simpler. Let's open the NVIDIA Control Panel the same way we opened the Catalyst Control Center. Then navigate through the main menu to the Adjust video color settings tab.


Tell your PC that you want to make color adjustments with the NVIDIA Settings and go to the advanced tab. Then select Full 0-255 for dynamic range. Now navigate through the main menu and go to the Adjust Video Image settings.


Enable Edge-enhancement, noise reduction and select your favorite range on these settings. Remember NVIDIA is not as aggressive as ATI when talking about edge-enhancement, so bump it up to 100% if you want. I personally use both at 100%. Also, don't forget to enable deinterlacing at the right side of the menu.

This is all you can change on NVIDIA GPUs at the moment. There is no video demo mode or whatever similar to ATIs options. Let´s hope NVIDIA IQ enhancements get noticeable while testing DXVA on Adobe Flash Player.
