Nah, those aren't typos. It's from the original AMD PR, where they have a note at the end and seems they simply forgot to make those particular instances superscripts.

Quote:
1. The pre-release version of ATI Avivo Video Converter demonstrates that ATI Stream technology allows video conversion that is faster than ever before. ATI Avivo Video Converter using ATI Stream technology converted an HD MPEG2 video at 1920x1080 resolution @ 24fps running 3600 seconds to an MPEG4 video at 320x240 resolution at 24 fps in 12 minutes, while iTunes 8.0.1 with WinQuickTimeMPEG2 pack converted the same source video to the same output specifications in 3 hours and 23 minutes, demonstrating a 17x speed up. System specifications: Intel Core 2 Duo QX9650 3.0 GHz processor, 6GB of Corsair CM2X1024-8500C5D 1066 MHz memory, Windows Vista Ultimate® 64-bit with Service Pack 1, ATI Radeon™ HD 4850 512MB. Performance of ATI Avivo Video Converter will vary based on system configuration, ATI Radeon product, source file and output settings used. ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre™ will include new functionality not yet seen in the form of ArcSoft SimHD™, a new type of post processing technology that allows consumers to experience close-to-HD viewing of standard definition content thanks to ATI Stream technology. Accelerated stream capabilities are dependent on enablement in individual software titles. Not all software is ATI Stream enabled, nor do all ATI Radeon graphics processors provide ATI Stream capabilities.

2. The combination of an ATI Radeon™ HD 4870 512MB graphics card (~$246) + ATI Avivo™ Video Converter using ATI Stream technology (free) compared to the combination of GeForce® GTX 280 graphics card (~$414) + Badaboom™ Media Converter 1.0 ($29.99) shows that an HD MPEG2 video at 1920x1080 resolution @ 29.97 fps, 19000 kb/s VBR and MPEG1 Layer2 48000HZ audio that runs 1 minute 31 seconds is converted to an AVC1-MPEG4 video at 1280x720 @ 29.97 fps, 7304 kbps with MPEG4 44100 Hz 160kb/s stereo audio on the AMD solution in 48 seconds, and is converted to an AVC1-MPEG4 video at 1280x720 resolution @ 29.97 fps, 7734kbps with MPEG4 48000Hz 62Kb/s stereo audio on the Nvidia/Badaboom solution in 113 seconds. Prices based on average Newegg.com pricing after mail-in rebates as of October 29, 2008. System specifications: AMD Phenom™ X4 9950 processor, MSI 790FX K9A2 Platinum motherboard, 2GB of Corsair CM2X1024-8500C5D 1066 MHz memory, Windows Vista Ultimate® 64-bit with Service Pack 1, Western Digital Raptor WD1500 hard drive, ATI Radeon™ HD 4870 512MB with ATI Catalyst™ version 8.9 and ATI Video Converter, or GeForce® GTX 280 with Badaboom™ Media Converter 1.0 and CUDA driver 178.08 INT. Performance will vary based on system configuration, ATI Radeon product, source file and output settings used.

Oeh I like Of course I will not be converting video a lot, but if this becomes available to more applications it could prove quite useful.

Sorry for bumping this older topic.

I was wondering if they had released this for public use yet being I haven't found any official download links, just an overview on their website. I do a lot of video converting and find this as a very useful tool to go along with my 4850. If anyone has any information about this it would be most helpful.

-Cheers
