I would like to know the status of the radeon driver for getting any kind of video processing offloaded from the CPU to the GPU. It seems kind of silly to have to have a high end CPU to do this kind of work when there is a perfectly good GPU sitting there doing nothing. I find no major problem in decoding videos up to 1280x720, but when trying to decode 1920x1080, the CPU gets pegged and the playback becomes quite choppy. This is with an X2-3800 and have a Radeon 3650.
No announcement yet.
