Intel ASIC encoder/decoder usage(VID)


Active Member
Hey Martin, i noticed than MSI Afterburner display two percentage values to Intel integrated GPU. One is iGPU load and the second one is supposed to be the ASIC video encoder/decoder load. In Afterburner Unwinder named it "VID" which can be confused with voltage stats but it shows a percentage load.

Is there anyway to make HWinfo display that info if it's available by Intel?
I don't have information how to read such values yet, but will do some investigation ;)
Added monitoring of Intel GPU (GT) and Media Engine Usage for Skylake and later iGPUs.

Still waiting this for Haswell..
Task manager read "video decode" at same load as Afterburner when encoding/decoding video with Quicksync/Hawell. Aparently Haswell has only one engine displaying encoding and decoding load. For my NVIDIA Kepler card it shows encoding and decoding at distincts engines.

There should be someway to find it out for HWinfo. Is there no information for developers about this "multiple engines" task manager is capable to display for users?
