    At least there were no claims of negative latency. I suspect they can claim "no latency" as long as it's under some threshold, just like "0g sugar" only means less than 0.5g

  • Nitesh Patel

    But in your earlier video on capture cards, you claimed that Elgato pci express cards also are almost zero latency which has been proved false here. Why did you made a false claim in that video?

    Now test Audio Latency, since for games that matter, on console or PC - that is a far bigger problem than video latency. 40ms of video latency is barely noticeable. 40ms of audio latency is a deal breaker. Try playing Rocksmith on anything with 40ms or more of audio latency for eg.

    You should use the LDAT to measure latency of gaming streaming services in some matrix like this: Shadow, Stadia, GeForce Now on Mac, Linux, and Windows clients. There's a super underreported issue here. A lot of people choose streaming because they want to play on weird hardware (like Mac users). But many of the streaming clients don't play nicely with the underlying systems they're running on (e.g., macOS). It'd be really interesting to see if the typical latency varies depending on the OS + client, because I'd imagine a pretty wide amount of variance between something like macOS Quartz + average Linux compositor + Windows.

  • Kenneth Pippin
    Kenneth Pippin2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    So if you’re using stadia through all of those devices, does the positive latency from the devices add with the negative latency to make 0 latency? Or is it multiplicative where you’re multiplying a negative number by a positive one to further increase the negative latency?

    I'd say a better approach for recording would be to connect the TV/monitor and the recording device to separate outputs on the video card. Then configure Windows to duplicate the display (instead of Extend), and send audio to the recording device. From there you could extract audio from the recording device's output, so the only latency is on the audio. I'd be surprised if people could identify 20ms of audio lag.

    What about delay from a HDMIeARC connection ? Nobod talks about that topic. Its just stupid having high quality audio dealy when you can trade it for "non noticeable" 8ms of lag when connecting your consol or whatever directly to a soundbar.

    The screens come from a few manufacturers so they are mostly the same. The difference is the controller board. That's where the brand name and model comes in. They decide what features to enable to what extent and implement that on the board that fits their price point for each model they want to sell. Higher quality board + amount of features on board = higher price tv or monitor. All tvs are targeted at the lowest common denominator, so they are cheaper and have lower quality boards.

    They probably don't add one extra frame, but rather a few milliseconds of latency. That would explain why more devices don't add more frames of delay. The original frame is probably just getting within the last refresh window. Leaving 8-16ms for everything to reach the next refresh cycle.

    Weird that some sound devices introduce that much video delay when they're only tapping into the audio part. Maybe there is indeed something to do with HDMI copy protection where the entire signal has to be validated even if there is no need for it. Also I'm guessing the Sony receiver isn't doing anything peculiar decoding wise but just passing through the entire signal.
