yes they double and so the resolution and codec complexity of the videos!Originally Posted by Qaridarium
hey, who said new chips won't incorporate this support?and hey the UVD unit can not handle VP8/webM means your statement is pointless for HTML5+webM
All the web is moving towards HD content, even the cheapest and smallest linux devices can do it if they have nvidia hardware onboard and if you think video acceleration is only for htpc then discussion is pointless.Originally Posted by mirv
Just tell me the name of your planet and... naah not again :P
be sure. today you only get 1650x1050 and only 24hz peer eye and mostly no stereoscoopic view.
double the resolution is a no way on the mass market.
and codec complexity no i don't think so mpeg2 is used today LOL and h264 is years old on an long time of period you will net get any better than h264-stereoscoopic view.
and i think VP8 is less complex than h264-
on an long period you will not get any better than 1900x1200 pixels at 60fps with stereoscoopic view.
means no you don't get 4K resolutions with 100hz and multidimmensionalstereoscoopic views
means no.. every bullshit cpu in 2 years can handle this shit .
I really don't see the purpose of this thread other than flame baiting
What happened to superscalar thinking? Are we still in the times of this chip?Originally Posted by Qaridarium
What if the user not only watches a video but does something like this at the same time?
Destroy the video for several times and see the CPU cycles cry. It gets near the computation limit of my Athlon 64 X2 5600+ which is clearly a high-end class hardware. And this is only a low-res video
This is why video acceleration is so important. People won't be just watching the video but interacting with it and offloading video decode to the gpu is a good idea.
Your "low-end system does everything" theory can break easily with emerging technology so be careful with it...
Did you check your cpu usage? What happens if anything beside the browser is open on your desktop? And this is only a low-res 640x360 video...I can play it flawlessly (destroying the video several times) with my 1.4Ghz cpu and without any h264 offloading.
So let me understand the point of this thread.
AMD promised open specs, AMD delivered open specs.
Therefore, AMD is lying.
OK, great thread, enjoy it :P
