Just reading an article on anandtech about the radeon AIW 8500.


People wrote in and asked a bunch of questions. Here is one I found interesting...


What happened to the HDTV decoder that was supposed to have been implemented on the All-in-Wonder Radeon 8500DV? It is clearly visible in the pre-release diagrams but not mentioned as a feature in their release notes.


The decoder is there, it is simply not used. The demand for it is simply not great enough. There is a need for a front end for the decoder before it can be used.


Hmm....

They've always had busted software support for their products... Prolly didnt have the time/resources to implement...


Figured they could put it in later if the demand arises. And I dont really follow that one, seems to me demand for this kind of thing is steadily increasing...
