I would swap every super-xbr for NNEDI3 if your card can handle it. If the display is 4K, I've been told NNEDI3 is too much if you want to use image sharpening and other post-processing. Some people think super-xbr rings too much, but I don't find it all that offensive at 100 sharpness if used with SuperRes. With a 1080p display, NNEDI3 and even Reconstruction (soft) chroma upscaling would be possible.

Thanks for the advice. I've actually followed your posts to a "T". Sometimes I think I expect too much, but then I've seen other systems that blow me away with similar specs and videos in the same format. I haven't tried NNEDI3 though. What would the difference be between 16,32,64,128 Neurons?

I don't have a 4k tv yet so I'll try out the Chroma Upscaling too.

I'm in the same boat.

If I use Super-xbr +AR +Super-res, and all of the other recommended settings in the above guide, everything works with a 12-14ms render time. I tried switching settings to FSE and D3D11 to see if render times would improve, but they are consistently the same (windowed, FSE, D3D9, D3D11 net the same render time). Not that the picture is terrible or anything, but when I setup my neighbors' low end AMD system (AMD processor with on-board graphics) and enabled NNEDI3 128 Neurons, the sharpness was almost surreal! What else didn't make sense is that this was possible on such a low end machine, with 20-24ms render times (albeit they are running Windows 10, and I am on Windows 7x64).

When I tried the same on my machine, the renders are 45-90ms depending if I use 32, 64, or 128 neurons (with no change whether D3D9, D3D11, FSE, windowed, etc.). That being said, any content, whether 720p, 1080p, is unwatchable as the frame rate is really choppy.

I did setup my (and my neighbors') system to DXVA copy-back, as I was under the impression (after reading pages upon pages on here) that CUVID doesn't make any render time difference, and actually hurts quality. Please correct me if this is wrong.

If anyone has any suggestions or insight on what settings would work (whether in MadVR, LAV, Nvidia control panel, etc) so I could get NNEDI3 to work, it would be appreciated.

Not sure if it will actually help but I'd suggest uninstalling your display driver with something like DDU, wiping it clean and reinstalling the latest Nvidia driver with a clean install. Might not help but worth trying.
