Intervideo & NVIDIA = hardware assisted h.264 decoding


At HDBeat, we like High Definition not Working Hard, so anything that makes things easier works for us. We've been talking about how ATI and NVIDIA are including technology in their videocards to make watching high definition video easier on your PC, so it's a double bonus.

Now Intervideo has announced that they will support NVIDIA's PureVideo hardware assisted h.264 decoding in their WinDVD software. The software will work with GeForce series 6 & 7 GPU's.

With both Blu-ray and HD-DVD expected to make use of h.264 compression, your computer will need all the help it can get.
