HDCP Compliant 7600GT and 7900GTs in time for HD-DVD and Windows Vista
ATI has received a lot of bad press in the past for claims of HDCP compliancy when its X1000 series of graphics cards lacked it. This enraged a group of users filed a class action law suit against ATI. NVIDIA was in a much better position as it is a chip manufacturer and doesn’t make its own boards nor was there HDCP compliancy advertised all over product boxes and manufacturer websites. While ATI and NVIDIA GPUs have support for HDCP, a separate chip that stores decoding keys is required to output a fully HDCP compliant video signal.
