List of Currently Supported GPUs for NVIDIA’s VDPAU hardware acceleration

Currently supported VDPAU GPUs
NVIDIA released on 14th of November 2008 a driver for Linux, which is capable of accelerating H.264 encoded content on hardware. What is called NVIDIA PureVideo and is available for Windows since 2006, is now also available for the UNIX world. This new driver is told to work also on Solaris and BSD. Here’s a list of currently supported NVIDIA GPUs. You won’t find the 7. and former series, as far as I understood it, they’ll never will support PureVideo.
I’got this list from here:
