  1. Adobe has released a third beta revision of Flash 10.1 (10.1.51.95) that adds further support for hardware video acceleration. The first public beta of Flash 10.1 launched in November and brought hardware-based H.264 acceleration, significantly reducing CPU workload during HD video playback. In some instances, CPU utilization was cut by half or more when comparing Flash 10.0.32.18 and 10.1.51.45.

    Using 10.1 for a long time, its very buggy with flash games such as farmville, but youtube-like video sites now noticably fast...
  3. So does the beta include support for gma 950 or no?

    GMA 950 doesn't have video acceleration. GMA 500 does. It's great to see this support being made available. It's like owners of GMA 500 netbooks are getting a hardware upgrade. :)
  5. And us 950 owners are getting left behind..
  6. lol well thats what you all get for buying intel based graphics.

    You don't have much of a choice in the netbook field unless you spend more than $400, and at that point you probably shouldn't be buying a netbook.
