Its not just about Gaming: ATI GPU Encoding and Video Playback

With High-Definition (HD) video gone mainstream thanks to digital TV transition in different countries around the world and HD camcorders (such as AVCHD) becoming more affordable, there is now more demand for additional processing capability to edit and convert HD content. In order to edit and convert with relatively reasonable speed, end-users needed a PC with high-end CPU configuration…that is, until recently.

Consumers are now able to convert their video files leveraging their GPU hardware inside their PC. Simply put, with graphics cards and applications specially constructed to take advantage of the GPU, you are now able to tap into the massive amounts of parallel compute power, you may not even have been aware your PC had. Cool, huh?
