Tesla M60 HEVC Decode

Is this possible? Just tested the AppDec sample decoder on an AWS instance running a Tesla M60 and it threw an error saying the codec is not supported.

Can’t see it listed in the encode/decode matrix https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix

I’ve been able to encode H265/HEVC just fine with this GPU

Cheers!

Hi,

Tesla M60 doesn’t support HEVC decoding. Tesla M60 is GM204, HEVC decode is present in GM206 GPUs and beyond.

Table 1 of .\doc\ NVDEC_VideoDecoder_API_ProgGuide.pdf lists the functionalities exposed across GPUs.

All of GM20x GPUs and above support HEVC encode. Please refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_Tesla.

Thanks,

Ah that’s a shame. Thanks for confirming that, Ryan.

Cheers!
