    I am wondering whether the current imacs allow for gpu decoding of h264 content (flash, youtube). Of course, AMDs 6xxx support hardware decoding but Apple has been brutally negilgent in the past and only allowed a few select gpus to be supported despite underlying hardware support.

    From what I know, Apple has limited the HW acc to specific GPUs.
