If you're trying to trans-code something that you don't have a
co-processor/module for you're forced to CPU/GPU trans-coding. Would a FPGA
still be more power huns gry then?

I think/hope FPGA's are more efficient for specific tasks then CPU/GPU's

We can always have evolution create a efficient decoder ;-)
