    I'm considering getting a GTX 950 to replace my aging RadeonHD 4550, but I'm hesitant because of the whole issue with Nvidia not delivering the signed firmware to nouveau devs. I'm also considering a GTX 750Ti because the 950 is overkill for my 3D needs, but I really want the dedicated HEVC decoder in the 950.

    I wish Nvidia made a low cost/power (fanless) GT 930/940 with the modern video decoder block. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

      All vendors are using proprietary firmware.
      Go with the GTX 950, it's a great efficient GPU with HEVC-support.

        Currently only HEVC 8 bit is exposed via VDPAU. Still want to see working HEVC Main 10 support. Maybe we need to wait for Kaby Lake, impoved Skylake with slightly different GPU.
