I've got a Sandy Bridge i5-2300 CPU and Iwant to use the Intel Media SDK to encode h.264 video streams with hardware acceleration. I noticed that there were different versions of MSDK. Which version can best utilize the hardware encoding capability of Sandy Bridge processors?Thank u.

[bash]Hello, The Media SDK 2.0 was aligned with the Sandy Bridge platform, however the actual DLL that provides the
accelerated HW encoding feature is not distributed in the Media SDK download. It is instead installed by
the graphics driver. So, download the Media SDK 2.0 to get the docs, libs, headers, samples then install
the latest version of the Sandy Bridge graphics driver to get the HW acceleration. -Eric [/bash]
