    But the newer UVDs aren't so unsimilar in en/de-code operation for some codecs so you can kind of use it backwards. (in my simple words)
    This is also a reason why the newest GPUs/APUs do no longer have UVD+VCE but rather VCN (video core next).
    So yes, AMD uses a unit that is called DE-coder also for a few EN-condings.
    Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

      How does it compare to Intel QuickSync?

          This only works on UVD 6.3+ hw. See:

            Yeah...I know about those but got screwed by Oibaf one too many times. Padoka stable PPA for me now. Sweetness and light. Same for the kernel. I use Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility and only install new Mainline kernels. I don't mind leading edge. But bleeding edge.....yeah....I can wait.
