Turning to Multimedia...

Aside from graphics, multimedia and the home entertainment market, specifically, are fronts where ATI and NVIDIA are continually pushing forward. At the NVIDIA press event, Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, mentioned their diversification into consumer electronic applications, such as Windows Media Center Edition.

NVIDIA’s Windows Media Center Edition will be based on their Personal Cinema line, which we found companies like Albatron and Chaintech showcasing. We are aware of the sound issues in GeForce4 MX versions of the Personal Cinema, but we have hence not heard anything about the GeForce FX based Personal Cinemas. The supply for these cards is much lower compared to ATI’s All-In-Wonder, and after they go through testing, we will update accordingly.

Meanwhile, ATI is focusing on enhancing their existing multimedia profile with the Remote Wonder II and All-In-Wonder 9600 Pro.

    It would seem obvious that the growth of the computing market over the past years, would have a influence on graphic card designs.

    Manufacturers where in touch with consumers a few years ago, but in this market the average PC user had more technicle knowledge.

    Today the average joe public is caught up in the usual beat the joneses scenario wanting the lastest fad, now a computer.

    Its no wonder that many hardware manufacturers are getting into problems expecially with support as the feedback they are getting from end users will reflect from a user base with less knowledge of computing.

    I believe that once again the Nerds will triumph and stuff joe public if you can,t set it up don,t use it.

    "...Adding to the weight is the use of an LCD screen (not a TFT screen, which is on virtually all notebooks)."

    "...Certainly, this is a heavy system, and we are curious how the market will accept it."

    Okay, maybe I'm stupid, but this makes little sense to me. When you say something has a TFT screen, it means that it has an LCD screen using TFT technology. AFAIK there is no magical weight saving between the active and passive LCD technologies, so what is Mr Andrew Ku really saying?

    Perhaps he's saying that Anand or a Minion of Anand needs to sight these articles before they are viewed by the masses.
