It's understandable to have an audio page since not every video card has HD audio passthrough, but there's no point for listing the abilities of every video card. It's just not relevant, since any graphics card made in the last 4 years will have the same decoding abilities. It might make sense in the future to start listing h.265 decoding hardware, but even then such a page wouldn't look like this and would likely just be a part of the existing [[H.265]] page. It makes sense for Android VPUs, but not for x86 GPUs. -- [[User:Ned Scott|Ned Scott]] ([[User talk:Ned Scott|talk]]) 09:12, 25 March 2014 (EDT)

Why?

It's understandable to have an audio page since not every video card has HD audio passthrough, but there's no point for listing the abilities of every video card. It's just not relevant, since any graphics card made in the last 4 years will have the same decoding abilities. It might make sense in the future to start listing h.265 decoding hardware, but even then such a page wouldn't look like this and would likely just be a part of the existing H.265 page. It makes sense for Android VPUs, but not for x86 GPUs. -- Ned Scott (talk) 09:12, 25 March 2014 (EDT)

to see where this idea can be expanded and how, again this is something kib had visualized and
I am trying to make some sense of, but either way.

if you starting to have some itch you want to scratch before this is even half done or anywhere finished, there's two things you can do.

1) wait till its more or less finished 2) take it all over
