Okay so everything that can be open sourced IS open sourced. Is the performance of the UVD controlled more by the microcode or by the driver? Meaning: will Catalyst and Radeon have equal decoding / encoding performance for the simple fact they both use the same microcode and the driver is just saying "Hey! Decode this!" and throwing video at UVD. Or does the driver actually have a hand in the decoding / encoding and its performance?
