  • Oh so there is gs410/20 range but only OEM, bummer, hopefully it'll come out for the masses soon.

    • I have the 460 and love it. I've ran comparisons against my 8800gt and 280's on phoronix-test-suite and it seems to perform very well.
      Just check the global.phoronix-test-suite.com for my unigine tests.

      • Does the GTS 450 cards work well? I'm wondering if xv is supported with those cards. Any other formats besides MPEG-2 supported?

        Looks like ATI/AMD is a lost cause with no Xvideo support ever even with latest binary drivers and even a very recent supported distro, Ubuntu 10.10:

          I'd like to know this too, I'd be surprised if it didn't.
          The series that pre-dates the current 400 series worked very well.

          I'd prefer a lower-end part like the GS420, as it's VA is likely to be just a good.
          But apparently it's only available to OEM's etc.

            That's if you're referring to video acceleration API's like VDPAU?
            Which is nV's proprietary implementation...

            There is another more open one that attempts to make a universal VA API for *nix, but nV hasn't jumped on board.
            And Intel/AMD's implementations aren't terribly good.

              libvdpau is free software.

                  Linux drivers that work worth a crap?

                    Now about that non-economic driven society... what the hell has to do that with the fact that you call us fascists?
                    First, I have told you before that every society was, is and will be economic-driven. The open source model is economically viable. If not then maybe Google, Intel, AMD, Nokia and dozens of other companies are full of illusionists... or maybe you believe that one and only one model can be economically viable because it happens to have the lion's part in a specific period!
                    But again what that has to do with us being fascists? Because we play clearly and openly and we offer everything for free means we are obligated to open our house to everyone? You are fascist deanjo, you and your alike who get the education the ancestors offer you, you close it and packet it giving back nothing and leave noone to learn from it as if you gained your abilities magically outside from this world and thus you owe nothing and you believe thst you have the right to do so... and all these in the name of the very model you have based this paranoia!
                    If we are fascists deanjo then you are what? Destroyers? Murderers? Or just uber selfish and scrooges? What? My english suddenly seems to be very poor to characterize you!
