HWiNFO Reports GPU decoder as encoder for NAVI.


New Member
Hi and thanks for the awesome software. I noticed that GPU decoder is being reported as encoder for multiple codecs. I tried with normal mode and ADL mode and it's the same thing. I hope it has not already been reported :)

Edit: here is how it looks when I'm playing an 8k@60 VP9 video:

In my case, when watching video using integrated AMD R7 graphics then utilization is reported as GPU Decode, if i switch it to be played using RX560 graphics then AMD R7 shows it's utilizing GPU Video Encode 3.
Is there any bug with it or this is how it's suppose to work in crossfire mode?
