New Chip To Speed Video Compression...

Need more speed!

Intel will announce a new family of Microprocessor Chips to improve the compression and transmission speed of high - definition video across the Internet. Code named Penryn, the chips will be available in upcoming processors for desktops as early as the first quarter of 2008. You can expect to see the technology marketed as the Intel Core 2 Duo and Core Duo Extreme chips sometime next year. This could be a great leap forward for both video geeks and photographers who often use the same computing technology on a daily basis. Imagine high definition video blogging!

I believe there are some computers being released in the next few weeks with the new 'Penryn' Chip, they're Probably gonna cost an arm and a leg! AMD is also releasing similar technology sometime soon.

They always come out with faster stuff, right after you buy a new computer, camera etc... Maybe the AMD version will be compatible with my new computer?
