If you don't have integrated graphics, does your CPU ever process video?

I'm curious, because I have an independent GPU, my NVIDIA Card, and I was wondering if this takes the load of the CPU, or does it just handle the heavier stuff?

Laptops can switch between integrated for power saving and discrete for heavier loads.
Desktops don't really need the power economy so by default it'll always be on the discrete GPU.

Depends how your video decoders are setup.

I was under the impression that videos are by default CPU decoded, with GPU acceleration support being rather spotty at best.
