Intel has quietly added some type of DRM support into the Pentium D and 945 chipset combo that was recently released. Not surprisingly, the chipmaker is not elaborating on the details of this support and have made very few comments about it. Intel Australia’s Graham Tucker made this quote recently that is bouncing around the web:
"[The] 945g [chipset] supports DRM, it helps implement Microsoft’s DRM … but it supports DRM looking forward,"
It will be interesting to see details of this embedded DRM support emerge, and they will.
