Impromptu latency check between Magewell vs Datapath vs original

Recently, had a chance to install a Magewell Xi102XE-HD and a Datapath RGB E2S capture cards in a new X99 Watchout pc and run a check for a client. Resolution quality was visually equal between the two, but the Magewell is slightly slower as one can see in this short video I have posted on youtube - https://youtu.be/d1BROTKlO-Y

As mentioned in the description accompanying the video ('Show more'), Watchout version 5.5.2 was used.

 

Though the licences sold were v5/6, client's current project rental for 8 days (the main purpose of his purchase) specified v5.5.2, so he did not want v6 installed...yet.

Thanks, appreciate your sharing the information.

 

I guess I am not a youtube person, two levels down :huh:

 seems I need to learn to click "Show More",

but It might be clearer if you put that in the post too.

 

Magewell vs Datapath vs Original youtube video posted by Thomas Leong

An impromptu video capture cards comparison:

Magewell Xi102XE-HD on the left, Datapath RGB E2S in the centre, and original clone on the right.

Source is a video played from a laptop (HDMI) feeding a DVI splitter. This DVI splitter in turn feeds

the monitor on the right and sends the other outputs to the capture cards

processed by Dataton's Watchout 5.5.2 in a X99 i7 5930K PC

that sends its outputs to the left and middle monitors via an AMD Firepro W7100

with DP-DVI active adapters to the monitors.

 

Coming from a computer, I guess the input resolution was 1920x1080@60p?
