NVIDIA announced that NVIDIA GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring PureVideo HD technology are powering the outstanding HD DVD experience delivered on some of the latest HP consumer desktop and notebook PCs.
The new PureVideo HD-equipped PCs from HP enable consumers to enjoy HD DVD movies with superb clarity in high definition.
"Consumers want a crystal clear, stutter-free HD movie experience, which is why PC manufacturers select NVIDIA GPUs with PureVideo HD technology," said Scott Vouri, general manager of multimedia at NVIDIA.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology is available on select HP PCs with HD DVD, including the HP Pavilion dv9000t Entertainment Notebook PC and HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7690n PC. The new PCs feature an NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT GPU with HDCP and PureVideo HD drivers.
"HP and NVIDIA have worked closely together to take PC entertainment to new heights," said Bruce Greenwood, director of product marketing for consumer notebooks at HP. "With NVIDIA's PureVideo HD technology, new HP consumer PCs deliver brilliant detail and performance, and provide consumers a spectacular HD DVD movie experience."
PureVideo HD technology features hardware acceleration for decoding H.264, VC-1, WMV, and MPEG-2 movies that delivers precise images having up to six times the detail of standard DVD movies. The PureVideo discrete video processing core offloads the CPU and 3D engine of complex video tasks, freeing the PC to run multiple applications simultaneously.
New HP consumer desktops and notebooks with NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology will be available within the coming months and can be purchased direct from www.hpshopping.com, by calling 1-888-999-4747 or by visiting thousands of popular retail locations.
