Internet video just got a major speed boost. The new version of Adobe Flash Player 10.1 – launched to the general public today — features GPU acceleration for PCs. That means you can enjoy your favorite videos from sites like MLB.com, BBC iPlayer, or YouTube HD in full 1080p HD on an ION netbook, Optimus notebook, or GeForce-powered PC.
