    BBB is part of TwoOrioles, so it might have been referred to the company based on its userbase.
    Still, MMX is hardly relevant nowadays. SSE4.1 as the lowest bar doesn't sound too unreasonable

    Also relevant: https://code.videolan.org/videolan/d.../15#note_22262

    MMX is too old and not that beneficial as it can reach only 64bits (maybe 80bits max)
    SSEx should be the base as it is 128bit with very fast implementation on all CPUs of the last 10 years.
    Especially SSE2 is mandatory for x64 architecture.
    From the last link it's obvious that dav1d developers targeted AVX2 for 256bit acceleration using ASM, but not exclusively.
    They are going to optimise for SSEx later.
    So no worries, I think.

    if they want to go with 4k and 8k videos they have to use AVX2.

    You can also usually safely target SSE3 (no, not SSSE3) as well since it's supported on all DDR2-capable 64bit x86 CPUs and newer.

    (the only 64bit x86 CPUs that don't support SSE3 are some socket 754 and 939 Athlon 64s which used DDR1)

    I'm totally fine with that. I usually use 2pass anyway. And, of course, I meant I wish they had it as an option.

    @ Nintendo Maniac 64:

    Even AMD Athlon64/Phenom (K8-K10 arch.) support some SSE3; but x264/x265 does not use it, considers their implementation as "too slow", I believe.

    SSE3-optimised av1_nn_predict


    https://aomedia.googlesource.com/aom...6f313f27b1c501

    Quote:
    I have developed a SIMD-optimised neural network implementation using
    SSE3. I have also added functional equivalence tests between this and
    the original implementation. I added aom_clear_system_state() to a few
    places where FPU operations are used after av1_nn_predict.

    Speed-ups over the original C implementation for various network shapes:
    10x64x16: 1.72x
    12x12x1: 2.72x
    12x24x1: 2.35x
    12x32x1: 3.34x
    18x24x4: 0.94x
    18x32x4: 0.93x
    4x16x1: 2.01x
    8x16x1: 1.89x
    8x16x4: 2.02x
    8x24x1: 2.77x
    8x32x1: 2.98x
    8x64x1: 3.76x
    9x32x3: 1.08x
    4x8x4: 1.66x

    A few awkwardly-shaped networks are slightly slower: these could be
    padded to more convenient sizes to use the SIMD kernels.

    I also wrote an AVX/AVX2 implementation but on these relatively small
    networks it was barely faster than the SSE3 code.

    Athlon 64 CPUs are available on socket 754, 939, and AM2; 754 and 939 used DDR1 memory while AM2 used DDR2, and all AM2 CPUs support SSE3.

    (there are some socket 754 and 939 CPUs that support SSE3, though it's kind of hit and miss).

    Phenom for reference requires at least DDR2.

    I'm sorry, I don't know socket numbers... - so we looked at the same topic from different angles.

    What is the CPU you use for testing?
    It might be related to the AVX2 code used in dav1d.
    Intel i5-3570k (SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX), Windows 7 Sp1 x64.

    Notes:
    So as you can see, the rav1e and aomenc cmdlines have been slightly adjusted to take advantage of the bugfixes and updates from the last months.
    In particular, rav1e has been gifted by Frank Bossen the ability to create a B-pyramid, which almost single handedly decreed rav1e's advantage over x264.
    A word of warning on this last point: it's still kind of a mixed bag. In very flat, static scenes like PresageFlowerWalk x264 still rules by quite a margin, while rav1e takes the crown in clips like F.Y.C and PresageFlowerFight
    Code:
    F.Y.C, x264 -> rav1e:
            RATE (%) DSNR (dB)
     MSSSIM -18.451  1.01281
    PSNRHVS -25.7463 2.03419
    
    PresageFlowerFight, x264 -> rav1e:
            RATE (%) DSNR (dB)
     MSSSIM -31.4953 1.80761
    PSNRHVS -31.0827 2.27546
    
    PresageFlowerWalk, x264 -> rav1e:
            RATE (%) DSNR (dB)
     MSSSIM 66.2264 -1.70084
    PSNRHVS 70.8208 -2.28853
    (as always, a negative BD rate means improvement, positive means regression)

    Considerations about times with libaom:
    I'm using my desktop PC to run all the encodes. It is also my main study/work PC, so the times can come quite off. Plus, I run multiple encodes in parallel, which further messes up timings.
    HOWEVER, between annoying bugs and a lot of stuff, the first report did cost me nearly a week of time (this includes having to re-run some encodes because sh*t happened) ONLY to encode with libaom.
    Taking advantage of the recent bugfixes and improvements I have been able to rework my workflow and bring down that time to a couple days only, WITHOUT having to touch the --cpu-used parameter and no night time encoding.
    All in all, I am pretty satisfied.

    This concludes my (bi-monthly?) report.
    As always, I'm open to any kind of feedback to improve my comparisons and my encodes.

    So, what's everyone's favorite AV1 decoder app on Windows? Chrome looks to be not converting from video to PC range correctly (blacks are washed out, contrast is low, etcetera). Is there a nightly of something that does AV! correctly for apples-apples?

    VLC 3.0.5 (Nightly). I fixed my nVidia settings just today because I had that same problem while playing back the ToS fragment I use for the tests. Plays out correctly now.
    In alternative, ffplay for quick stuff when I already have a bunch of command prompts open in the right path.

    I use almost only MPC-HC. Which uses LAV Filters with a direct API. It was able to play AV1 clips from the YouTube beta playlist and some tiny own encodes (I don't have powerful CPU's available). So, only a limited experience, yet, but it appears to work.
