You mean Flash might not bring my browser to a crawl rendering games that look like they came straight out of 1995? My, what progress.

The 5XXX series are crippled by flash if Hardware Acceleration is enabled, even if those flash videos/programs aren't using HA at all. Literally, crippled, as their speeds become locked at idle speeds. Weird turn around...

So will it work on nVidia gpu's..??? Did AMD pay Adobe to create a proprietary engine, or are they just advertising exclusively for AMD? If it won't work on nVidia gpu's then I think thats a horrible move by Adobe.

On a side note, most of AMD tech demo's work on my nVidia graphics cards, even though they say AMD GPU required... Just saying..

@willard,

Once everyone moves away from flash, you'll find that people will be able to successfully code crap in HTML5 and Canvas. The only difference will be they won't have a platform to blame it on.

Yeah. There are some Flash games that put Crysis to shame, especially ones with lots of CPU-controlled units, pathfinding, physics and etc...

To it's credit: would you have ever thought in 1995 that you'd be playing those games in a web browser?

Hahaha, I just thought the same exact thing.

"People will start complaining that HTML5 is crap once the crappy flash programmers move there".

Cheers!

At least my mother in law will have a netbook that can play Farmville and all that crap now. Atom was crap in that regard. When they say the full APU spectrum are they even including the low low end C series? If so, that's pretty amazing.

I love flash and flash programming... for games, fun modules, interactive stuff. I do not love html5 and its lack of consistency and support but I do support it as much as I can. AS3 is great, and the core rendering engine is awesome (3d etc).

I have taught basics to master's classses in flash design and programming and I have always thought the cynical nature of apple to dismiss flash silly. there are iOS output modules specifically for flash, geared to have NO slow down.

then again beginners take the program, hack it, etc, and then get a job after 1 month of 10 15 minute youtube tutorials, even in fortune 500. this is no different than bad game programming and sloppy coding for memory and texturing (assets).

still, finding a way to truly stream H264 without flash or a php chucked fake out is something I really look forward to in modern interactive design. that, and legally having OTF or even TTF|PS font outlines in works.

Same, something has happened to the drivers. Use to be able to livestream live sports, but now they just don't load anymore.

Flash works great on my GAMING COMPUTER as does it on my ANDROID. People hating flash so much probably don't own any of these two devices. Their devices are "Perfect" as in "Shiny and limited in function". Just some facts.

Perhaps there's a neg on flash emanating from a place called Apple since their products don't natively support it. Get the Apple fans and journos slating Flash and we have what we see today.

I'm more concerned with Flash not being on my Lumia 800 than with it being buggy or whatever, really.

If it works much better in the future on AMD GPUs, that'd be good to see. Can I presume this will encompass the entire HD range and not just 6xxx onwards?

Or reasonable people who don't want to install a massive security problem onto their PC.

My Acer Aspire One is very happy right now. I will say though, for a 9w all in one chip it performs very admirably right now in win 7 (and 8).
