ATI Clarifies HDCP Support

DailyTech brings word that ATI has responded to the latest complaints regarding the company's supposed support for HDCP functionality with its products. HDCP content protection is said to be fully supported by ATI's latest GPU's. However, products using these GPU's lack the appropriate decryption keys at the board level to actually allow for this functionality. If you purchased an ATI-based graphics card in preparation for Vista, be warned that the HDCP feature you'll require might not actually be enabled and yet another graphics card will need to be purchased to play withthe full functionality of Microsoft's latest and greatest OS.

As the last sentence in ATI's response concludes, none of ATI's products or any of its partners' products currently support HDCP.
