    Not saying it's a problem - just trying to share the best information we currently have.

    In reference to @eydee's post, I see the dichotomy between improvements in hardware and software as a false one. You don't only need one or the other, but both! Perhaps we can all agree on that.

I'm sure Google is interested in at least *some* VP9 acceleration. So is this going to be used for hybrid VP9 decode acceleration, like on Windows?
    It is used for video processing functions, like upscaling, sharpening, de-interlacing, etc. that low-end/older hardware requires CPU resources to use. HVD is a different thing.

    Considering the price point and disappointment of RTX, I don't think too many 2080Ti owners should be laughing.

    Besides - this is an optimization feature. If you're going to have inferior performance (like AMD) might as well maximize it as much as you can.

    AMD is making its Software transition to AMDGPU,
    And so, it makes a lot of sense in optimizing the drivers, also this optimizations will help new hardware, like the 7nm VII
    Software Optimization is a good thing.

    From my point of view tp this article:
    It seems that some parts of driver / graphics API will not run on CPU but on GPU.

    It can lower data transfers between CPU and GPU and it may speed up GPU friver significantly.


    Sounds like good news. Hopefully we will be able to see improvements "soon"
