Using Powerdirector 10, and haven't been able to get an answer on this on the Cyberlink forums, so hoping someone here can help.
I'm about to buy a new laptop for my editing (I have reasons I need the mobility for my editing machine.) I have a choice of the newest high end AMD Radeon mobile GPU (the 7970m) or nVidia (675m.)
For general 3Dmark and other benchmarks, the AMD is much faster, about 30-40%. But Powerdirector uses CUDA for hardware acceleration of rendering, etc. on the nVidia. It mentions that it can utilize hardware acceleration for video encoding on AMDs but needs a download and install of codecs via Avivo.
I guess my general question is this: does anyone have experience in general with AMD vs. nVidia GPU hardware acceleration of video encoding ?

In this case, it's better off to follow the market leader, which is Intel. I don't trust ANY benchmark reports, gas mileage reports, energy savings, blah, blah, blah. Just my opinion.
Hahaha, oops, meant "Intel/nVidia". Like what edDV says, below.
