I have a lower class of CPU than you (Core2 with G35 chipset) and get
silky smooth playback 1920x1080p50 with de-interlacing, the fix for
the tearing is quite simple, once you know ...
Option "XvPreferOverlay" "True"
to the Display section
of your xorg.conf, if you have "configless" xorg, create a config file
Xorg :1 -configure
