ATI - rubyDespite recent issues with chip shortages, ATI is still making major moves, today announcing their X1800T is available worldwide, featuring Avivo technology. This is the chip you will need to take advantage of the hardware assisted transcoding that all the kids are doing nowadays. In the future, it might even help out your games by running physics acceleration in hardware, but we'll see.

They claim its the fastest graphics processor on the planet, but if it can help me out with converting video I'll have an excellent reason to replace my old Radeon 9200SE-based card.
