VEAI with the Intel Arc A770

Hi there, I’m just trying to optimize VEAI for the Arc A770 (13700K), and I’m looking for any advice you can give me.

I’ve spent the last week playing around with VEAI, currently using version 3.1.6. I’ve encountered some issues. I’ve been trying to upscale a 480p DVD TV episode to 1080p using Proteus Manual, and interpolating 23.976 fps to 60fps using Apollo. Current results for a 43 min. episode: 12 fps (.08-.09spf), 3h30mins.

Crashes: Basically any time I begin a render, if my computer goes to sleep, the render stops with an unknown error. Any time I try to render more than 1 video at once, it crashes with an unknown error after around 5-10 mins.

Other weird things:
Under AI processor, I get the following choices:
Intel(R) Arc™ A770 Graphics
Intel(R) UHD Graphics 770
Intel(R) Arc™ A770 Graphics
All GPUs

Not sure why the Arc A770 shows up twice?

Performance stats show differently on the Arc Control app vs. Windows Task Manager. Currently, the Arc Control App displays 79% GPU Activity, 78% Render Activity, 3% Media Activity, while Task manager shows between 3% and 20% GPU Utilization. I’m not sure which one to believe. (Intel’s software is super buggy)

Also, GPU Core Power is only at 114W (this card goes up to 220W), GPU VRAM is at 2279 MB (out of 16GB), and temps are low (around 65). I’m not sure why I can’t get to 100% here, where the bottleneck is, but using my RTX 3050 Laptop GPU, it uses 100% of the GPU while it’s rendering the same file. Arc is working much faster, but what can I do to improve performance?

With intel’s “Deep Link” enabled, shouldn’t the integrated graphics be doing something?
