While Intel steered clear of mentioning the new DRM technology at its Australian launch of the new products, Intel's Australian technical manager Graham Tucker publicly confirmed Microsoft-flavored DRM technology will be a feature of Pentium D and 945.
The 945g chipset supports DRM, it helps implement Microsoft's DRM ... but it supports DRM looking forward," Tucker said, adding the DRM technology would not be able to be applied retrospectively to media or files that did not interoperate with the new technology.
I urge anyone contemplating purchasing a Intel Pentium D, with the afflicted motherboard to look elsewhere.
This product will provide a market lock-in to Intel or Microsoft products, thats the real reason for DRM.
The added fact that Intel refuse to say how the system will operate also means that they will not be able to call upon the third part support that has traditionaly kept them in high esteem in the marketplace.
Lets show them we are not the sheep they seem to think we are . :roll:
