I don't get it. ShadowPlay exists for cards 5xx onward and for x50-cards up the line. Why no support for notebooks? Seriously? Doesn't it use the hardware acceleration on the GPU?, the same chip that is used for movies- h.264? Isn't that available from the lamest GT610 onward to the highest class out there. Why not make it for everybody? I feel neglected. :shadedshu

Shadowplay exists for cards that has the built in NVENC hardware in it. Its not the usual hardware acceleration to decode or encode movies using GPGPU or PureVideo. The nVENC is a dedicated hardware embedded to Kepler cards to encode videos at a very fast rate and is also being used for SHIELD video streaming.

Also the GT 610 is a fermi card, a rebrand (also known as 520 or 710M), thus no NVENC hardware in it


forgot to say, ShadowPlay beta comes out October 28 as a part of GeForce Experience
