NVIDIA Releases Drivers With PureVideo HD Support

NVIDIA release new Forceware drivers featuring its PureVideo HD technology. This technology combines high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing. The drivers are available now from NVIDIA.com.

PureVideo HD technology is included with all 7-series NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. However, there are several requirements for building or upgrading a system to enjoy protected high definition content. To enjoy the HD DVD or Blu-ray movie experience on a PC, consumers will need:

  • A PCI Express graphics card with NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series HDCP-capable GPU, secure HDCP CryptoROM, and 256MB graphics memory (see list here)
  • WHQL-certified NVIDIA ForceWare drivers that feature PureVideo HD technology (http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp)
  • An optical disc drive that supports Blu-ray or HD DVD movie playback
  • Blu-ray or HD DVD movie player software from CyberLink, InterVideo, or Nero
  • An HDCP-compliant display
  • A dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM

PureVideo HD provides hardware acceleration for decoding H.264, VC-1, WMV and MPEG-2 movies. In addition, the PureVideo discrete video processing core offloads the CPU and 3D engine of complex video tasks, freeing the PC to run multiple applications simultaneously.

PureVideo HD-compliant graphics cards include required content protection circuitry (HDCP) for playing the new Blu-ray and HD DVD movies at the highest quality possible, and are directly integrated with the HD movie software players.
