Among the many Gen12 improvements this quarter is getting VP8 decode working for this newest hardware, HEVC VME P-Frames give a boost to, AVC VDEnc TCBRC (Transport Controlled BRC) give a boost to, improved synchronization handling, and EU fused dispatch.
The EU fused dispatch give a boost to is for handling 8K video processing with the VA-API driver. This fused dispatch give a boost to is to conquer 8K video processing barriers otherwise with this newest Intel graphics hardware.
