Word on the street is, Apple is working on dedicated video chips for their Mac line of computers. The rumored video hardware, which currently is “pure speculation” will supposedly loosen the load on Mac computers’ CPUs by taking the responsibility of most of the video processing activities. The video processing chips will support decoding H.264 videos, which by the way, is one of the codecs being used in Blu-Ray High definition video discs.
Alley Insider, which is the source of this speculation went as far as saying that Apple will be adding this dedicated video hardware to all of its upcoming Mac computers.
…the rumor I have heard, that I believe to be a fact, that has simply yet to be confirmed. I have heard that Apple plans to add hardware video decoding to ALL of its new computers beginning fairly soon, certainly this year.
Well this is good news for all you Apple-lovin’ folks out there, lets wait and see what else Apple’s got for all your geeky needs.
