Hello Guys,



Good news for you Geforce fans out there? (you know who you are ;)


From the Firing Squad's coverage of Comdex,


Quote:
With NV17M, Nvidia has finally taken upon itself to update one of the most lacking areas of its graphics processors (and no, we're not harping on 2D quality here): hardware acceleration of video/DVD, handled by the new Videp Processing Engine (VPE). Through the VPE, NV17M can now handle inverse quantization in addition to inverse discrete cosine transform, motion compensation, and YUB-RGB color space conversion, all in hardware. This one-ups ATI's entire Radeon line, which has long held the crown for hardware-accelerated MPEG2 decoding. With the less-demanding notebook market as a testbed, we can safely assume that some of this technology will make it into Nvidia's next desktop performance GPU, giving it yet another notch to match or beat the Radeon's multimedia reign.
Now, about those 8 bit DAC's, boys.....



Regards,


Jon
