GPU Acceleration of H.264 video content using Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta

This release of ATI Catalyst™ supports the new Hardware Acceleration features of
Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta for video encoded in the H.264 format.
Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta introduces hardware-based H.264 video decoding to deliver smooth video playback, reduce system resource utilization, and preserve battery life. Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta is expected to be available for download from Adobe Labs (labs.adobe.com) before the end of the year.

In the opening Thread you could mention the official ATI Radaeon drivers page link. Just a suggestion though.

GPU driver issues are generally lumped with hardware issues, cause they directly affect the way the GPU will respond. They are more dynamic and change every month. So the hardware performance changes in direct correlation.
