Default Re: VDPAU testing tool

I tested on my new GTX 460 and the performance for the Mixer tests seems to be far too low compared to other results I have seen here. The decoding part seems to be OK (doesn't seem to vary much between GPUs), but is likely not enough for the announced 3D movies capability of the GTX 460 (should need to decode two movies simultaneously).

The mixer part should be dependent mainly on shader power but shows only a tiny fraction of the performance my 8800 GTS 512 (G92) showed.

I guess the driver needs some optimization in this part.
