Trying to understand Quick Sync

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am reading up on Intels sandy bridge processors and I am having a bit of trouble understanding what Quick Sync does. From what I understand it lets you convert video files faster.

What I don't understand is:
1. Does it only work with certain file formats? I read it only worked with MPEG-VC-1 and AVC. So does that mean it wouldn't work on say WMV?

2. Does it only work on compressing videos for mobile devices?

Thank you for your help.

Quick sync can encode and decode HD content. The formats that are implemented depend on the software makers, but they are clearly not only for mobile devices. QS can do fullHD encoding and also "for mobile" formats.

It's only supported on the h67 chipset no CPU overclocking. Until the z68 comes out.
