The GT-430 is GF-118, the GT-520 is a GF-119. Although derived from the same fermi architecture it does not mean that the video decode engine remained the same. The GF 119 is not simply a case of just disabling 8 ROPs on a bad GF-118 or another example of the GF100 having part of the chip neutered.
