First Intel Viiv based PCs won't feature DMA

Posted on Monday, January 02 2006 @ 21:04:10 CET by

Within a couple of days Intel will launch the Viiv consumer PC platform at CES in Las Vegas. The first batch of PCs will be available from Acer, AOpen, Gigabyte, MSI and Shuttle but DigiTimes warns these first Viiv PCs will lack the built-in digital media adaptor (DMA) capability.
As Intel’s upcoming Viiv 1.0 disables DMA functionality, the first batch of Viiv PCs are recognized to be more like high-end entertainment PCs, the sources commented. By June, when the chip giant introduces the DMA-supporting 1.5 version, PC makers are looking to roll out a more complete digital home product line, the sources said.
PCs based on the Viiv platform will cost between $1,500 and $1,800.
