Do you care about the H.264 hardware decoding function in the ATIdisplay cards?

  3. To answer your question, I don't care about H.264 hardware decoding, because
    DO you know whether Arcsoft TotalMedia could make use of it?
    I am using it to watch HDTV broadcast in Hong Kong (format
    DMB-TH).

  5. You might find this interesting: Any results for OpenCL?

    Pretty retarded to only support the proprietary CUDA when OpenCL is the
    standard.

    Even Nvidia has stated that cuda is more the hardware layer and the OpenCL
    standard will run on it. As i stated , Both Nvidia and AMD/ATI are going
    forward withe the OpenCL standard.


    Old but info on AMD's OpenCL support

    OpenCL vs CUDA?

    When asked how NVIDIA's CUDA compares with OpenCL, and if NVIDIA is planning
    to support both in its future products, Hegde explained, "This is probably
    better put by saying how does C for CUDA compare with OpenCL – this is a
    language to language comparison."

    Hegde added, "The answer is that the two share very similar constructs for
    defining data parallelism, which is generally the major task, so the code will
    be very similar and the porting efforts will be minor.

    "As OpenCL is another method of accessing the GPU, we wholeheartedly support
    it. Its sits seamlessly on top of our CUDA architecture and as such,
    developers using NVIDA hardware have a choice of language and programming
    environment.

    "With regards to product support, we plan to have OpenCL supported on the CUDA
    architecture which means that any NVIDIA GPU built upon the CUDA architecture
    will support OpenCL. This means every GPU (including GeForce, Tesla and Quadro
    lines) from the GeForce 8 series onwards will support OpenCL. This gives
    OpenCL developers an installed base of more than 100 million GPUs."
