The hardware you talk about doesn't exist. That's what I mean.
I see. As I said, my impression was that hardware gets replaced at some point by newer one, introducing capabilities formerly available only in software.
But I might be mistaken and all graphics chips always had video decoding in them, even for codecs that didn't exist yet.
As a software engineer I surely would appreciate some of that fairy dust these hardware engineers seems to have at their disposal, being able to deploy algorithms before they are invented.
