Albatron Release Blue Ray Decoder Card

Admittedly it's an Nvidia 8500 GT, but HTPC users who don't want to spend a lot of cash may be interested.

It`s attempting to set a great standard in the lower end dx10 cards, whilst giving it the multimedia benefits.

I don`t know if the addage of the bd & hd is going to be that much in demand at the moment. A manufacturer of a £1000++ htpc machine could use it well, but the masses will be interested in it in a year or so maybe.

Then perhaps we`ll be banging on about G9x cards, and purevideo HD may well be the standard by then.

If they tag on extra to the price because of the purevideo HD, I don`t see it selling very well outside of oem htpc.

One big plus about it is that it will bring DX10 to HTPC users with PC-V300 cases without modification to the case, it has a good size.
