Intel G965 chipset won't support H.264

The Inquirer reports Intel's upcoming G965 chipset won't be able to accelerate H.264 video, instead it will have to relay on the processor to do the job as the integrated graphics unit doesn't feature H.264 acceleration support.
Intel won't be very upset as it will sell a whole hanging bunch of these chipsets anyway. It also has an ally now, as Intel's own favorite pet chipset producer, ATI, will make a chipset that will support both HDMI and we are sure it will be able to at least provide some support for H.264.

Nvidia's graphic core can do it for the AMD Athlon, but we are sure that Nvidia will introduce a Pentium based Nforce chipset that will be able to do that too.
