5.2 requires the hardware to handle more than twice as much macroblocks 
per second than 5.1. So the decoder needs to handle 4k at 66fps.

I'm not sure about the absolute numbers, but I think that could be to 
much even for a Tonga.

VDPAU actually doesn't have an enumeration for the level, so you can 
even return something like 9.9 without a problem.
