    What CPU usage do you guys have while watching a 1080p quality trailer on Youtube? For instance Pirates of Caribbean 4.

    Mine goes up to 35-39% during certain time and I am wondering if that is not too high considering the newest Flash Player 10.2 installed? It looks like it is not taking an advantage of GPU acceleration.

    Any ideas?

    39% is not much is it? To me it seems reasonable for processing a 1080 video through flash plug in as your computer can push out over 1200% 100% per core then 100% per virtual core for a total of 12.

    I just watched the trailer you are thinking of and the flash plug in is running 40% of the CPU usage again to me thats no big deal as I have seen well over 1000% on other programs.

    Only nVidia 9400M, 320M and 330M GT support hardware acceleration in Flash

    At least that was the case with Flash 10.1, thanks to Apple who limited the hardware acceleration to the GPUs I mentioned above.
