Hi every one :)

I don't know where I post this Thread
So I hope it's in right place




There is a lot of recording program Such as

FRAPS , WeGame , Bandicam ......... etc

but all this programs are useless :( , because it's make game too heavy.

That mean CPU have two operation ( run )

- Run Game
- Recording Game


so that doesn't showing real performance of graphic card



My question

Is there any other way to recording Game play without using any kind of program that make CPU busy?


Any Hardware?



Thanks

Well, it depends on how you do it. You have two major issues here.

A: Recording video that isn't compressed need a ton of I/O bandwidth and it fills space up very quickly but doesn't tax your CPU.
B: Compressing the video as it records requires a fast CPU to handle it. (This is where multi-core setups will benefit you.)

You can't record your video and expect performance not to drop, it's a trade off but wanting to record video and have no CPU usage is almost unrealistic (not impossible, but hard to achieve.)

This would actually be an interesting benchmark. Running a benchmark while recording compressed video. Might be an area where Bulldozer could shine over SB, but just to get trampled over by SB-E.

What you need is multi-threading (with extra resources after running the game,) and plenty of I/O and memory bandwidth.

I like option A :)

Do you think video Camera can do it

I mean is there any camera has input\output Or any device




I think option B is good for Quad core

A modern quad-core. My Phenom II 940 X4 struggled a little bit recording 1920x1200 @ 30fps. I'm sure my new 3820 could do it though but I also haven't tried yet. I'll add it to my list of things to try out. ;)

When I play Dirt3 on Ultra Sitting 1920x1080

I get AVG= 33 FPS

but when I do recording I got AVG= 19 FPS

You might try MSI Afterburner. The RTV1 compression is designed for single and dual-core systems, and puts very little stress on the CPU while recording. I've used it to record on my Celerons with minimal performance loss while playing games.

The only down side is that you have to have the codec installed to play the videos, and if you plan to upload them to youtube or something you have to convert them to a more standard format first.

Yeah I know :eek:

for that reason I ask that question


I don't need software to recording game play

i need Hardware

I am using Samsung TV Ready HD which is support 1920 * 1080



also I was using MSI Afterburner

but It's also making game to slow
For example : When I play NFS HP2010 I get AVG= 39 fps
but when recording I get AVG = 14 fps :twitch:

by the way before 3 days I have problem whit this program . Sound missing

So that program





This is my Video : HD 4670 512MB

Believe it or not, your video card takes practically no part in recording the video itself, it's your CPU, memory, and I/O that gets hammered. Also keep in mind that on the C2D the memory controller is still on the north bridge so the bottleneck is most likely the bus speed between the MCH as well as the fact that you only have two cores (something Dirt will use both of.)

Unless you upgrade your platform, you're going to have a really hard time recording much of anything on that hardware. Hate to say it. :(

Edit: Sound is the least of your concerns. :)

There are hardware cards you can use to record from an HDMI source, but they only record up to 1080i, and they really require another PC to do the recording. So before spending money on that you might as well just upgrade your rig.

A laptop isn't going to do it, these are PCI/PCI-E cards that you put in a computer, so you need a second desktop to effectively use them.

lol good luck finding a PC that will do what you want with out major frame droppage in the game....my rig in the cig even drops the frames to an awful rate!
Without a dedicated hardware PCIe frame capture card it will always be awful.
Cheapest way would be as already posted to record using a video camcorder and then an app to clean up the white noise in the sound.

I always thought it was due to the harddrives being too slow to write all the hughness of the data these apps write the game capture in but no way with my rig as I am running 4XRaid0..soo its probably CPU limited scenario.

No, it's a matter of compressing 30 frames of 1920x1200 video on the fly. It's hard for any hardware. I have a RAID-0 of 2 Force GTs with up to 1gb/s read and write and I still get plenty of jitter when recording Dirt 3, even though the game is running at 60fps, it just can't do it. Uncompressed video might be a different story but you're looking at multiple gb for a short clip, hell, even full quality 1920x1200 ends up being 4.2gb for a minute or two.

The best option out there is a external recorder, like this:

HD PVR SMT-S7800
http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/set-top-box/set-top-box/SMT-S7800/XEU

Connect the GPU to the HDMI @ DVR, use you TV/LCD as monitor.
480/720 or 1080p recording with 0% influence on the PC!

And with this model you could even upload directly you videos to your Youtube account, after recording.

If you find something better then this please do tell.

Hi all :)

I think I found lovely device it can recording GamePlay on 1080p

Hauppage HD PVR . but it's very expensive around 200$ :banghead:




Also I ask someone about best and cheapest way to recording GamePlay without any software

So he said Video Camera with AV IN port

Thanks all
