It's a minor part of what the 5000 series is about and that's probably why it is hard to find any press release talking about it.
It's not a minor part on the Cyberlink side. That's why I ask.
You guys are waiting for a PDVD9 patch to get bitstreaming with these cards, but as of today, there's nothing in the Cyberlink site to even show that that's coming soon. Being bitstreaming with ATI it should be big, big news
. And it will be for sure.
I mean, it'd be more business to them to make a BIG announcement with a new version - PDVD10 of course - so to get "more cash" from upgrades. So those considering this card for bitstreaming obviously better hold off for a while to see what's coming.
If they finally release a PDVD9 patch for bitstreaming soon ... excellent! But if not, ...
I don't like what I see, even from the ATI side ...
