The shaders support shader model 4. In addition, hardware video acceleration such as hardware-based iDCT computation, ProcAmp video stream independent color correctionand VC-1 decoding are not implemented in hardware. However, due to the scalar nature of the execution units, they can only process data on a single pixel component at a time. Phoronix Test Suite OpenBenchmarking. Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

In addition, once Gallium3D goes mainstream with users they will be able to benefit from a generic GPU video decodingwhich relies upon the graphics processor’s shaders.
