Qualcomm shows 18mbitps 1080p playback but also shows support of 1080p 3D playback and 1080p 3D recording. Is this really what he meant to say, that it not only playsback 18mbitps 1080p 2D, but also records and playsback 1080p 3D as well? Might it be that the 3D 1080p modes are supported only at lower bitrates? Does that mean the Qualcomm MSM8660 Dual-core platform may be the best performing video player and recorder among the recently demonstrated Dual-core processors? Please post your insights, knowledge and resources on this that you can find in the comments.
