Well, if you have a processor which runs the same algorithms in both SD and HD, the processor would be almost idle for SD processing. That'd not be optimal, would it? I do like the idea that a processor spends more time on each SD pixel to further optimize image quality.
However, Dale Adams already said that his ABT102 will run the very same algorithms for HD content and SD content. What he said sounded very much like HD processing per pixel would be identical to SD processing per pixel. So I guess the HD version of the ABT102 will be almost idle for SD processing.
The interesting tidbit is: If the SD version of the ABT102 is similar to the Realta, and if what I wrote above is true, then the HD version of the ABT102 should have superior image quality compared to the Realta for HD content.
Any thoughts about this, anyone?
