There is a lot of chatter out there these days about HD, HD-DVD, Bluray, etc.. So much as a matter of fact, that I've been tempted to just tune it all out. I did, however, stumble onto the NVIDIA site the other day and was tempted to download their PureVideo sample. It is amazing how clear the video is, despite the fact that it is playing on my PC and with Windows Media Player 10. Absolutely incredible! I suggest that you check it out for yourself. It is an approximately 250 MB download, but well worth it.
Here is the link.
Note: You do need to have the following - Now with an NVIDIA® GeForce® 6 or GeForce 7 Series-powered PC and NVIDIA’s advanced PureVideo™ technology, you can easily and affordably take advantage of the latest high definition video content.
