Sapphire RV630XT offloads a CPU in HD

Computex 07: Blu-ray playback at 10 to 20 percent CPU power

We’ve seen Radeon HD 2600PRO in action and the card didn’t had any problems to play a Blu-ray movie. The best part of it is that CPU loads between 10 and 20 percent of an Athlon X2 5200+.

The graphic card has 256 MB of memory but it could cope with this 1080 content. We had a chance to watch the Fifth element in HD and this mid end PC didn’t had any problems to cope with it, but the graphic card with UVD was the key.
