Albatron revealed Blue ray Decoder Card

Albatron has recently announced the new “Blue Ray Decoder Card” giving mainstream users a great alternative to Integrated Graphics. This low-profile VGA card can provide even the most basic systems with High Definition video playback including Blu-ray and HD-DVD. This card also supports DirectX 10, boosting 3D graphics performance for the Windows Vista operating system.

The technology behind this high performance, high definition video playback is NVIDIA’s PureVideo HD technology, embedded into the NVIDIA Geforce 8500GT GPU. One of the most practical aspects of this technology is that it focuses video playback mostly on the GPU, leaving your CPU to do other things. In fact, systems using Core 2 Duo processors with PureVideo HD usage has consistently shown CPU utilization under 20% during high definition video playback which also demonstrates up to a 60% reduction in CPU impact when using PureVideo HD versus using other technologies. This card also supports H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 encoding/compression formats used to record data on both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray disks.

A system with discrete graphics (system with VGA card) and DirectX 10 is highly recommended when using the Windows Vista operating system and its new graphics user interface. DirectX 9.0C can get the job done but you won’t be able to experience the full effects of Vista without DirectX 10. The Blue Ray Decoder Card contains DirectX 10 along with Shader Model 4.0 providing the most efficient gameplay processing for the latest DirectX 10 games, which are just beginning to spill into the market.

Share some exciting news with everyone.
I would like to share some exciting news with everyone. I recently discovered Search-and-destroy Antispyware (http://www.Search-and-destroy.com) and it’s the best scanner that I’ve used so far. It picks the same type of bugs that the better known and more expensive scans do and it’s so easy to get. The antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy is the perfect solution for taking care of your computer. I know it’s made a difference for me and I’m so glad that I gave it a try. I really believe that you will benefit from this scan as much as I have and I recommend that you give it a try.
