In addition to claiming support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta, ATI has released a new version of its Catalyst drivers in order to fully support that same feature. The new driver supports Radeon HD 2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000 series graphics cards as well as Radeon HD 4200 and 3000 series IGPs.

The new Catalyst 9.11 features 8.671 display drivers and should bring GPU acceleration of H.264 video content using Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta. This features is limited to HD 5800, 5700 and HD 4000 series of products. The new driver also comes with high quality downscaling for video transcoding MSE and a bunch of other minor fixes.

I did some reading in the ATI forums and I might skip these drivers for now.

So, for motherboards, GPU acceleration of H.264 video content using Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta will only work for HD 4000-based IGPs?

Crap. I have an ECS A-780GM-A Ultra AM2/AM2+/AM3 motherboard with HD 3200... :(

Hey, what about support for GPU acceleration of H.264 through Silverlight? I use Netflix! :)
