Hello, people of Khabrov!
Today is October 5th, which means the embargo on publishing this information is lifted. At nVidia press briefing. among other key features, the alpha version of Adobe Flash Player 10.1, which differs from version 10 in its support for CUDA, was demonstrated. This will be especially nice for fans of Youtube and their HD content.
In the process of demonstrating the capabilities of the hp mini 311, there was a demonstration of video playback from Youtube-HD in 720p format. All this was competently accompanied with a lot of statistical data which showed that people watch videos online even more often than use their email. The good news is that social networking and information retrieval still hold the lead.
According to the comrades at nVidia, news of the release of the public beta of Adobe Flash Player 10.1 should be published today. I don’t know about the news, but you can look for the player at Adobe Labs page There is no download link yet, but there is full information about the upcoming version.
NVIDIA is working with Adobe to enable
HD video playback on any computer, thanks to
hardware accelerated video decoding.
Flash Player beta version with hardware acceleration support
video decoding will become available later this year.
The official announcement of Flash Player 10.1 – in the first half
General Manager Vice President, Platform Business Unit
Of course, it was not without beautiful marketing steps to compare platforms and demonstrate what "was" and what "became". The main competitor, as usual, is a platform based on Intel chipsets and Intel low-end processors. It is believed that C2D copes with the load and normally decodes flash video on desktop computers, but according to statistics – such productive computers only 20% of the total number.
So, in Adobe Flash Player 10.1
Comparison of platforms by tasks performed.
At the moment, the cooperation Adobe and nVidia is exclusive and hardware acceleration of flash video is only available to owners of GeForce graphics cards and platforms with integrated video with CUDA support (which includes ION). Information on similar cooperation Adobe and AMD has not yet, but representatives from nVidia do not exclude this possibility.
The rest of the details and details can be seen in the presentation, I’ve only sliced the most key points. Thank you all for your attention.
