    Can you tell us why drm can be a reason when the hdcp master key is already known since 2010? Basically the whole hdcp crap could be disabled (for win) and there would be no diff in security. Nobody cares about it anyway.

      Each link in the playback chain has a different set of requirements/obligations, and the fact that one part is broken doesn't mean we (or any other GPU vendor) can walk away from other parts of the solution. At some point I expect there will be some kind of industry wide "giving up on the whole thing" event where all of the interlocking agreements and standards are cancelled, but until that happens nothing changes for us or any other vendor.

      It's one of those "it doesn't have to make sense, you just have to do it" things...

        Trying to apply logic to the legal system and DRM = FAIL.

          The whole thing is driven by the backwards-thinking control freaks in Hollywood who think that locking down every possible path their content may pass over is somehow going to stop piracy and continue to ignore the vast body of evidence to the contrary.
