I've been running 0.21 + VDPAU on a G98 board in my EPIA M10000 front-end for
a couple of weeks now, and it does fine. The CPU load while playing 1080i
with Onefield deinterlacing is ~30%.
I originally tried a G96, but it wouldn't cut it. It required too much of the
host CPU. SD playback put it at ~40%. 720p and 1080i pushed it over the
edge. I ended up putting that one in my dekstop PC which has an AMD XP 3000+.
The G96, which was passively cooled also got way too hot. Heat is not a
problem for the G98, which has a fan.
