Microsoft Patents GPU-Accelerated Video Encoding

ogreman Re:2004 (304 comments)

Intel Indeo used custom GPU to accelerate MPEG in hardware or software depending on the computer the video was running on. This would be 1989ish. Also a German company made MPEG accelerators used in 1995. Also check ATI and Matrox early video cards which did this also in 1990's, again how didn't? So I think this may be prior art and totally obviousness in application ... Both parts are somewhere in my stuffs bin.
