I think we are both right :)
I spent some time today for investigating the minimum specs for 1080p  
playback without GPU decoding and I mostly found a 2-2.4 GHz dual core a min  

AMD is well known for being "a little less performant than Intel". So shows  
my AMD X2 with 2x2.7 GHz which mostly plays back 1080p fluently but shows  
hickups in high bitrate / high complexity scenes. An Intel CPU on the other  
hand with > 2x2.4 GHz seems to decode 1080p nicely. Similar to what Cyberhawk  

For all my AMD boxes (2x1.6GHz, 2x2GHz, 2x2.7GHz) things are looking less  
good for 1080p playback under Linux without NVidia blob. I never got my AMD  
HD4670 to work with this VAAPI stuff. Neither with fglrx, nor with radeon.

Have a nice weekend,
