In Topic: HD4000 full acceleration for 10.8 / 10.7.5

03 April 2013 - 12:22 AM

Bump!
same configuration but no acceleration :worried_anim:


I'll try and help but it'll take a few days. I'm juggling two systems and that one is on the back burner for now. I could share my DSDT with the HDMI audio patch (z77x-ud5h) but we'd need to figure out the rest.

While I'm commenting here, what's with yurick's post on page 5... http://www.insanelym...80#entry1856310
Has anyone tested that out yet? It was a random post and no one really acknowledged it.

In Topic: Need a mothboard for HDMI audio with 7.1 sound

Well my update to share is that I have the build up-and-running but it sounds like I'll need more configuring in order to get HDMI audio out of this board.

Yeah I have. I went ahead and purchased a GA-Z77X-UD5H-WIFI board. I'm upgrading an existing build so this is will be going into my Silverstone LC-13-B case. For the CPU, I'm committing to the i7-3770S so once the funds are in place, the fun begins!

Is this potentially going to be a HTPC?


Yes, it is. I'm most likely going to do what you recommended here and just use the new board + iGPU and then ditch the 9600GT. I'll work to get HDMI audio out from the main board.

Do you want to do some mildly intensive graphic stuff on this rig?


No, none whatsoever. I think the HD4000 should be sufficient. Sometime down the road I may upgrade the GPU.

Mr. D,

Thanks so much for your input. I should have specified earlier that the 9600GT does have a HDMI port on it. So I'm taking it that it will have HDMI audio pass-through. I was reading up on it on this the following link -- http://www.pcstats.c...?articleID=2384. It sounds like I'll need a SP/DIF jumper though to achieve this.

As a side note, I will be getting a HD4000 capable processor as a backup solution for the graphics.

Will your receiver accept an audio source that is separate from that DVI signal, and in turn pass it thru to your speakers or TV?


Yes, it currently does now. I have an optical out to the receiver and then video is DVI-to-HDMI from the 9600GT to the receiver. My understanding of the drawback is that the bandwidth for the optical link is only 6 channel (5.1) and i'm looking for 8 channel (7.1). If I can get pass-through working on the 9600GT then I may get somewhere.
