If you actually read the claims of the patent, it only covers doing motion estimation on the GPU and everything else on the CPU. This seems like a rather obvious part to offload to 2004's marginally-programmable GPUs.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
