I'm sure many of you have been holding out for this one. An exciting announcement has surfaced today that confirms NVIDIA and Adobe are working together to bring GPU acceleration to Flash 10.1, not just for video but all Flash applications. This will be particularly useful for lowly CPU powered systems, especially the likes of netbooks and nettops (providing they have dedicated GPUs).
It's also very nice to hear that the Flash acceleration uses the DXVA protocols, not CUDA or any other NVIDIA specific method, meaning users of AMD based GPUs can also take advantage of this.
