    Looks interesting but I don't believe it until I've seen it live.
    Right now I'm splitting .mov files to .wav and .m2v using Avanti + ffmpeg, then putting them back together using Avidemux. Would it help with that performance? I have to do it quite often in the near future... remember the 405GB of NiN? All of it. Thanks, Apple, for not releasing your stupid codecs for PCs! :(

    Perplekks, wouldn't something like Mediacoder be easier?
    .MOV is accepted as input, and you can output as most formats.
    It's also mostly multithreaded (uses 75% of each of my cores), and fairly easy to use.

    Isn't that just 36 minutes, 21 seconds?? :D

    Looks like some cool tech.
    Could you have a few of these spurs engine cards in a machine to do realtime encoding/decoding type tasks in an HTPC? :)

    Cheers, badders. But can it take .mov HDV files?

    Wait a second... I could just google that myself. ;)

    You know, it'd be really nice if this had an open source driver.. One of these and a low power dual core or something and it'd make a good accelerator for HD HTPC use. :(

    well the card looks to be a 1x PCI-E and the bench says it used cuda and the card.. so the plugin arch is rather flexible in dividing data so i don't see why you couldn't.. i'd be more interested to see if the mother board busses could support the capture card uncompressed hd then forwarding it to 2-4 cards then combining it and putting it on the hard drive without puking and slowing to a crawl.. time to pump up the cooling on that north bridge lol.
