View Full Version : 7800+h.264 decode accel: True promise or a maybe???

Anyone see a firm comitment from NVIDIA to enable h.264 hardware decoding in purevideo? I have seem some reviews say "coming in sept" and others say "IT COULD be done"

This would really make a MCE2005 box shine.

this would clinch the deal for me to buy a 7800.

h.264 isn't that big of a deal to me yet. I'm sure by the time it actually catches on every card will have it and by that time all the current generation cards will be considered slow, and we will have all probably have gone through multiple cards. They can take their time with this feature, it is more of a check box thing for marketing purposes at this point.

found they are doing it. is in some betas out there 8040 i think

Yeah 80.40 already does it, but the driver is way too buggy :/

ah well. this is all research for me now atm anyway. i wont be buying till sep time. hopefully some stable drivers will be out by then :angel:

p.s am i crazy or is this forum backwards? :confused:

What do you mean backwards?

never been to a forum like this. your post now was first in the list and the first post is at the bottom.

i've read other threads and the first post (original post of that thread) is the last on the last page.

found out now tho, for some reason it was defaulted to newer post first. no wonder i was confused :afro:
