    I'm not talking about a survey which is likely to be skewed based on ATI users coming here to talk to you, but rather the Phoronix Test Suite database. I can't find the link right but I'm sure it...

    But don't the stats posted in article benchmarked peformance on Phoronix contradict that? Aren't there far more fglrx vs FLOSS driver users?

    There are no games that are crippled without PhysX support. PhysX has always and will likely always be cosmetic. ATI has a partner program and Nvidia has TWIMTBP. Both are the same experience and...

    Of course they are, they supply working drivers. So evil. ATI are doing you all such a good favour with shitty closed and open source drivers. Must feel good donating to the Cult of ATI.

    Nvidia user here. What's said and what's reality are often mutually exclusive. I come to phoronix because they do decent investigative journalism and technical comparisons which almost no other...

    Two 1080P streams of what though? Of low bitrate HDTV rips? 40Mbit fullrate profile 4.1 and higher streams?

    Sincerely, I'm finding all of this 'my CPU can do it just as well as your GPU'...

    If it's so agnostic why didn't AMD use it and not opt to create XvBA?

    Oh wait, I know, because it isn't agnostic and neither is XvBA.

    All of the this agnosticism is just a matter of keeping the...

    It's written by Nvidia for use with the appropriate GPUs. God, sometimes I wonder why people bother arguing silly points of discussion.

    Except that VDPAU is DEPENDANT on the hardware, OpenGL is not.
  10. I think I was clear enough and Bridgman...

    I think I was clear enough and Bridgman understood me just fine. VDPAU does all the processing on the GPU. The API just interfaces with the hardware, as all APIs of such nature are designed to work.
  11. I sincerely doubt that to be true wrt to Nvidia. ...

    I sincerely doubt that to be true wrt to Nvidia. I can see the difference and the VDPAU documentation clearly refers to being able to offer post processing and compositing support. I see no reason...

    Well then either you can't see it or XvBA doesn't implement it, but the difference is there.
  13. Read my discussion with Bridgman, even he agrees...

    Read my discussion with Bridgman, even he agrees there's a difference and he and I both know why and it definitely is related to image processing (post processing). Your poor quality rips which are...

    Also make sure the Xv acceleration stuff is enabled in your xorg.conf file.
  15. Well that's more of driver thing, I would think. ...

    Well that's more of driver thing, I would think. Much like NV's sharpen texture feature. The problem with a CPU driven decoder is that it needs to be able to hand off some level of interaction with...

    The former, which no CPU HD decoder does in Linux (and only a few do in Windows with the right playback app, Elecard is one I think that does).

    Your CPU is capable of doing two fullrate 40MBps AVC streams in profile 4.1 or higher?
  18. Moreover those CPUs can't manage multiple streams...

    Moreover those CPUs can't manage multiple streams at the same time. That's a requirement for Bluray playback.

    1. I'm not defending DRM. I'm talking facts. HDMI is an open standard, yes, but it often takes a closed standard to get people like manufacturers and producers of content to align together to...

    Of course you will, but if people don't complain or make you aware of specific stability issues and lacking performance then they aren't doing their part to help you make a better driver.

    There's...
