I Was wondering, at which AMD processor will i be looking for a descent 1080p playback? 6000+?
Anyone here running AMD Cpu and can play 1080p?

Razor, read the thread.. I'm pretty sure I posted my specs.. So did others.. I can play 1080p.. have 6000+.

depends on the codec... 5000+ x2 here, can play 1080p x264 fine.

So, are there any new conclusions in terms off what hardware should be used?

Did you just post that or actually read the last 27 pages?
IIRC there are plenty of posts to draw a more or less solid conclusion with.

I read it and I even posted in this thread weeks ago.
But in the meantime there is a potential alpha 1 floating around so I just wanted to ask if there is some kind of "official hardware" .

Hardware similar to that of anyone claiming to be able to play the killa birdscene should be sufficient. Assuming you trust them that is.

I am running a incredibly outdated XBMC setup and it plays 720p HD content nicely.
7300GT card 128 meg ram
athalon X2 4000+ processor
1 gig ram
cheapie Abit motherboard with built on everything.
250gig 7200 rpm segate drive.
It works great. I only have 20% single CPU use most of the time and 88% CPU (single) used for HD playback of mp4 and m4v files. anything over 720p freaks, but I dont care about that as I only have a 720p set. cince most people have a 720p set and 100% of all broadcast HD is 720p I'm finding that 1080p capable to be useless for at least another 3 years.
You do NOT need screaming bleeding hardware. you can build a $250.00 budget box that will rock pretty hard.

lol. Most broadcast HD is 1080i, not 720p. That goes for cable and satellite too. ABC,/ESPN and Fox are the exception in most markets.
those of us with 1080p displays and 1080p content are quite happy with the improvement over 720p, and find it far from useless.

1080i is only 12% more bandwidth than 720p, and for some uses, has lower quality picture than 720p
