Intel 'Bearlake' to support HDMI, HDCP?

Integrated chipsets ready for consumer electronics applications

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Intel's upcoming integrated G35 chipset, part of the 'Bearlake' series, will incorporate support for HDMI and HDCP, leaked company information indicates.

A slide published by Chinese-language site HKEPC reveals the G35's integrated GPU will be capable of feeding an HDMI port, a pre-requisite for driving the latest HD TVs. The GPU mixes in the sound output generated by the audio sub-system in the chipset's South Bridge and sends pictures and sounds to the the HDMI port via a signal strength booster part.

The HDMI port circuitry will be connected to the G35's PCI Express pins. The GPU will be capable of 1080p output - or 24-bit 1,920 x 1,080.

HD content that requires the presence of HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is fed through the G35 North Bridge's integrated HDCP engine, the slide shows. ®
