I'm sure Bridgman could better explain (and for that matter, I'm sure this has already been answered many times), but I think there is better decoupling of the decode/encode and DRM in Intel than AMD.
If that is the case, who does all that legal review stuff?

Looking at these tests, I really wonder what effect changing the screen resolution would have on some of these tests. It is a fairly common trick for gamers unsatisfied with their performance to lower the screen resolution of the game to attempt to compensate for slower hardware, and not everyone has huge screens. My games are only going to be played at a maximum of 1280x1024 anyway, not to mention the existence of certain popular widescreen displays with small vertical resolutions.
I understand that 1920x1080 can be considered your maximum default, but an article exploring this would be valuable in my opinion.
