If I'm not mistaken, the extension has been present in the driver for a while now.
But not Announced by AMD/ATI.

They used a totally outdated graphic card versus a rather new one.
According to the NVIDIA documentation (at http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-h.html ), VC-1 support on this card is only partial, while most new cards (even cheap ones) has total support.
If the card has total support in VC1, I guess results will be exactly the same as H264: VDPAU will totally beat XvBA
