I used samples code provided by intel to decode H264 stream on windows7 with 3rd generation of i5 core. I found that performance of Software decoding and Hardware decoding are almost similar . Hence in order to make Hardware platform decoder more faster i wanted to avoid the output frame copy to CPU and see performance.But this MFXVideoDECODE_DecodeFrameAsync api does not provide any option nor any control to experiment something like this.
Is there anyway that i can do this experiment and also evaluate hardware performance? Or am i missing something ?
