Intel, Microsoft To Back HD-DVD

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:28 am

Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp., the leading suppliers of chips and software for most of the world’s personal computers, are throwing their support behind the next-generation DVD standard known as HD DVD.

After taking a neutral stance for months in the battle between the competing HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats, the companies said Tuesday they have joined the HD DVD Promotion Group that includes Toshiba Corp., Universal Studios and others.

The move means upcoming PCs running Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Vista operating system or Intel’s ViiV entertainment technology will come with support for HD DVD drives.
