    Re: Reviews - AMD arrives on the GPGPU scene with ATI Stream

    Any idea when 8.12 hits? I know the 10th seems to be the predicted date, but I'd be interested to see when it arrives. I'm wondering if this might make it worth me folding again (given that I struggled with the GPU client with my 2 4870s)?

    Erm, hasn't the AVIVO converter been in CCC for a year or more now? Has it changed significantly with the 8.12s or something?

    But what about the read team?
    Think that read should read red.

    Some operations are simply better performed by the CPU, and that aside, there's no point leaving the CPU idle when it can be used in parallel with the GPU. If AMD got CPU utilisation up to 100% with the AVIVO converter, then they're doing a good job.

    Re: Reviews - AMD arrives on the GPGPU scene with ATI Stream

    Why is the Avivo download labelled:-

    Avivo Video Converter*
    *Avivo Video Converter will only work
    with X1000 series products



    should that be X1000 and above

    I've tried it and it doesn't seem to support any popular file types, I tried to convert an MPEG2 to an IPOD video:-







    what I got out was completely unusable.

    It's very very poor IMHO..
