Intel's Sandy Bridge processors have won acclaim for their hardware-accelerated video transcoding capabilities, dubbed Quick Sync, but there are significant limitations in the current iteration. LucidLogix, a company that's heretofore been known for its multi-GPU Hydra hardware, has developed a software-only solution named Virtu that it claims will solve one of the major issues that prevent enthusiasts from taking advantage of Sandy Bridge's transcoding performance, however. When used in conjunction with an H57 motherboard, Virtu allows for both a discrete GPU and Sandy Bridge's integrated GPU... Read more...

The problem is this: At present, there's no way to easily use a discrete graphics card and access Sandy Bridge's transcoding... Read more...
It's been a few weeks since Intel first announced that it was temporarily halting Sandy Bridge shipments to repair a chipset issue. At the time, we speculated that Intel's problems could improve AMD's quarter; a new ad campaign from the smaller manufacturer is proof that Sunnyvale agrees. Industry sources tell us that Intel's shipping difficulties have resulted in demand for AMD products. The company isn't offering specific figures at this point but expects to see some opportunity as a result.  We can't comment on what that means for Q1 revenue but it should be a major plus, though...
