    Pretty much nobody has Maxwell yet, so even if you have a new and powerful nvidia card you'll still be left with CPU-only decoding unless you have maxwell?

    The 750 Ti is pretty popular I think, and it's a Maxwell card. Also, H.265 is still nowhere to be found and the high-end Maxwell cards launch very soon.

    The 750TI doesn't have HEVC. It's first-gen Maxwell. The first Nvidia cards with HEVC will be the second-gen Maxwell, which comes out next year with HDMI 2.0 and possibly DisplayPort 1.3. Then Pascal will arrive with VP9 and HEVC and it will definitely pack HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.3.

    As for gtx750 -series there is no full hw h265 support, only partial(I don't think this is implemented on vdpau yet). If you remember vc-1 support from the geforce 8xxx series, it could be quite similar(first full hw acceleration of vc-1 was on g98 aka geforce 8400 gs v2).
