nnedi3 overview and configuration
If you have a GPU that is DX11 compatible you can enable NNEDI3 for [Chroma Upscaling] and image doubling with [madVR]. This can be very GPU intensive and if you raise the settings too high you will start to see dropped frames,if you notice dropped frames press these keys (CRTL + J). If you own a GTX 970 or GTX 980 and have a decent CPU then you should be able to utilize NNEDI3 in the following areas:
Chroma Upscaling: NNEDI3 @ 32 Neurons Image Doubling: Always Double Luma Resolution @ 64 Neurons
Please keep in mind that if you watch 480p or 720p video, you will be using a lot more resources than watching a 1080p video, so test out all video sizes before you finalize your configuration. If you set Chroma Upscaling to a less demanding algorithm like BiCubic you will have much smoother playback with lower resolution videos.

How to Enhance Video Image with MPC-HC and MadVR nnedi3 GTX 970
If you have a [GTX 970] and a decent CPU, use the settings below for madVR. These settings should net you around 12ms render time per frame for 720p video, and much faster render times for 1080p video. If you watch a mix of 1080p and 720p videos, these settings should work for both. If you only watch 1080p video then you should be able to use 128 neurons for chroma upscaling and image doubling.
|chroma upscaling||NNEDI3 32 neurons|
|image doubling||Always double Luma resolution 64 neurons|
|image upscaling||Lanczos 4 Taps with anti-ringing filter|
|image downscaling||Bicubic 75 with anti-ringing filter|
|smooth motion||enable smooth motion only if...|
|dithering||Error Diffusion Option 1|
nnedi3 and MPC-HC with GTX 770
I used to have 2 x [GTX 770s] in SLI mode. I was able to double the Chroma at all times (if needed) and I set it to 128 neurons.

Currently these settings allow me to view 1080p movies without dropping any frames. This is on a 4K monitor. I had to use DXVA2 for image upscaling, since any other settings resulted in 50ms + render times, which resulted in a lot of dropped frames. Image quality looks good and these settings also work fine for 720p movies and below.
|chroma upscaling||Jinc 3 Tap + AR|
|image doubling||Luma and Chroma always 64 neurons|
Using the configuration above, I get render times that are under 30ms for almost all content. In addition to these settings you might be able to get away with enabling "Smooth Motion" OR "Error Diffusion Dithering Option 1", but not both, if I enabled both settings render times jumped to over 50ms which means there are lots of dropped frames. I think this might be an SLI issue since dropping my cards out of SLI and using a single card seems to handle the configuration a lot better.
