I have been experimenting with the sample_transcode app running in software, but I am planning to get a platform with a 2nd gen Core (Sandy Bridge) to measure and test the advertised 2X speedup. However, I am somewhat confused about the h/w requirements.What is the relation between the processor (2nd gen core) and graphics adapter requirements?Is the 2nd gen core processor required for faster encoding, and an Intel G45 graphics adapter required for h/w accelerated decoding, as part of the transcode process? If so, it seems both a 2nd gen core and a G45 graphics adapter are required for a complete h/w accelerated transcode process. True?Thanks!-Karl.
