    Which is nV's proprietary implementation...
    libvdpau is free software.

    The series that pre-dates the current 400 series worked very well.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

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

    Basically there is a GS 420 already but only for OEM.

    The Fermi (400 series) equivalent to the low-end 220/210 hasn't launched yet. I'm not sure, but they may be coming soon (before christmas). Or maybe not...

    Currently, the lowest end you can get is the 450, which is a midrange part. Idle power is actually pretty low and not a whole lot higher than the 220 was, but of course load power draw is much higher because it's a much more powerful card. The cost at launch was $130, not sure what it's at now.

    Some details:
