Does anyone know of a reliable site that uses various source media and compares 8-bit and 10-bit encodes?
I found this: x264.nl/x264/10bit_02-ateme-why_does_10bit_save_bandwidth.pdf
Does anyone know of any tests that compares the processing required for decoding 8-bit H.264, 10-bit H.264 and some experimental H.265 videos? Maybe streaming sources will go with 10-bit H.264 before going to H.265. If so, then I may switch to looking into AMD APU based ultra-mobile devices insead of Bay Trail to make use of this 10-bit hardware decoding feature.The net result is a better quality for the same bit-rate or conversely less bit-rate for the same quality: between 5% and 20% on typical sources.
