    Intel chips with DRM

    Intel's Upcoming Core Chips to Secure Streaming Movies

    Intel on Monday said that it was building a hardware security layer in its next-generation Core chips to prevent streaming movies from being copied.

    The chip feature, called Insider, includes an end-to-end protection layer and management feature to unlock high-definition movies from online streaming services, said Karen Regis, consumer Consumer Client Marketing Manager at Intel.

    Insider is a part of Intel's enhanced graphics offerings in its next-generation Core processors, which will be officially released on Jan. 5, ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

    Unfeasable, unreasonable, and ridicule.

    I am not worried about what the encryption thing will actually do, merely that it is there. I agree about the AMD sentiments, and if AMD does not have such lock downs, I will take my business to them as well.

    So what... now it's not just "DRM won't let me use the stupid program I just bought", but now "DRM won't let me use the stupid computer I just bought"?

    Article is not technical, but how do they intend to prevent the user from recording their desktop while watching the movie in full screen mode? This has to be activated at the OS level.

    Is this really going to stop any "piracy" or are they just sucking money from WB selling them something that the tech-illiterate CEOs think will work.

    I don't really understand how, or why this would be implemented. Surely such a thing need to be done by the OS?
