Gabe never confirmed Source 2. He said "We’ve been working on Valve’s new engine stuff for a while, we're probably just waiting for a game to roll it out with".

That's promising, but it sounds more to me like a further evolution of Source the way they've been doing it so far.

We'll see soon(TM) enough.

But that's exactly what we're saying -- x264 can match the speed of GPU encoders or QuickSync, and still provide better quality.
Or, it can provide the same quality, faster.

Sure, GPU/QuickSync encoders will have a niche once they can be faster than x264. But they're still not. They have no niche at the moment.
I'm not a fanboy of x264, it's simple fact.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
