Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AMD's 780G integrated graphics chipset - AMD's 780G integrated graphics chipset
Tue, March 04 2008 | 5:19PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Without doubt the AMD 780G chipset is a revolution in performance for Home Theatre PCs – we finally have a platform that can playback everything we throw at it without compromises, regardless of the CPU used. It's strange to think that AMD is not only releasing a very inexpensive chipset but it also (inadvertently) encourages you to buy the cheapest, lowest power CPU possible because it'll still be more than capable thanks to the 780G's Unified Video Decoder (UVD) engine. For those not wanting to bother with Blu-ray (or HD DVD), it'll still save you money because it affords lower power across the board on all common compression types: MPEG-2, H.264 and MPEG-4 (Divx/Xvid). But then again, a PC Blu-ray drive isn't that expensive any more – the only thing that's missing is full bitrate High-Definition 7.1 channel audio pass through. Currently PC users are still limited to DVD quality 5.1 channel Dolby Digital and DTS audio.
