Hardware DRM may make adopters leery

Contrary to reports that AMD will not support DDR2 in 2005, it looks like it may be just a bluff as DDR2 DigiTimes is reporting that ULi will be mass producing a DDR2 northbridge for the end of 2005 that is pretty feature laden beyond just DDR2:

The M1697 is very interesting because it's designed to integrate a lot of features, including support for legacy interfaces such as parallel ATA, and new prospective technologies such as SATA II and High-Definition Audio. In addition, the chip has some security functions that support the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 1.2 specification developed by TCG (Trusted Computing Group).
HD-Audio and full SATA II support are things that are both missing from this first crop of PCIe motherboards. Alarm bells may be going off however with the inclusion of hardware supported DRM. It will be interesting to see if the other chipset manufacturers will also start shoving DRM into their next board revisions.
