Intel clarifies Pentium D DRM
Last week, PC World suggested that Intel had integrated a new Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology into its Pentium D processor and 945 chipset family. However, an official statement from Intel over at The Inquirer reveals that the copy protection technologies supported by the Pentium D are nothing new.
The DRM technology referred to in a recent report was not a secret or an embedded DRM from Intel. Intel does support various content protection technologies including DTCP-IP technology, which is publicly offered by a number of companies in the industry to enable protected transport of compressed content within a home network.
