I'am AMD GPU user (HIS HD 6570,and then sell it to buy HIS r9 270)

i really love AMD GPU (CCC menu interface really excellent, AMD eyefinity setup really easy)

those thing make me loyalty AMD.


Today the release of x265 aka HEVC ,it make me happy because it's up to 4x times better compression than x264 (with same quality ,you can get lower file size)

i have a video 4k @60fps encodec with HEVC.

but sadly, AMD GPU can't play it smoothly,

and then i have spread that video to my local community,

and then here the conclusion so far :

only nvidia GTX 960 can play it smooth easily (because it has HDMI version 2.0 and support HEVC hardware decoder acceleration)


here my question,

will one day AMD  release a GPU that have HDMI 2.0 with support hardware accelaration for hevc with affordable price? (as far ias i know only r9 390x but the price really must be excessive my budget)


i wish AMD can granted my wish.

if amd doesn't have any idea to release that gpu,

maybe i will move into nvdia gpu

please don't make your loyalty fans dissapointed
