IcemanRV200 is still being judged by the masses


Lightbulb Microsoft's Corona

In my opinion... yes... this WILL revolutionize PC entertainment. Now adays the general populous who feel they are home entertainment guru's dont feel the need to put effort into investing in a PC for home entertainment.

But now I feel this Corona technology from Microsoft will REALLY change peoples opinions on buying DVD drives for thier computer. That type of resolution. On video playback. Thats gotta look awsome.

So what does everyone think about it. Obviously I feel ATI will also lead of Nvidia with the quality of the immersion engine. And best of all... Corona is FREE!!!!!!! (well free as long as you have Windows XP) uh oh....
