Default Re: Pure video = VDPAU ?

I'm not 100% totally sure of the situation, but I think that it's as follows:
  • 6xxx, 7xxx
    • In Windows: PureVideo: accelerates only mpeg1/2 streams.
    • In Linux: XvMc: accelerates only mpeg1/2 streams.
  • GF 8 or higher
    • In Windows: PureVideo-HD: accelerates mpeg1/2, h264, WMV/VC-1, etc.
    • In Linux: VDPAU: accelerates mpeg1/2, h264, WMV/VC-1, etc.

Sometimes the NVIDIA ads mix up PureVideo and PureVideo-HD.

I would like to know though what features are exclusive to PureVideo-HD that VDPAU don't support yet (or will never support).
