SoCs Supporting VP8

Systems with dedicated VP8 support

Some System-on-a-Chip (SoC) manufacturers have added support for VP8 decoding (and in some cases encoding) directly to their SoC. In theory these systems should out perform systems without dedicated VP8 hardware both in terms of speed and power usage. A benchmark on the Rockchip RK2918 SoC showing the benefits of hardware VP8 decoding is available on the WebM Blog.
