ATI Xilleon 260 HDTV Processor
On September 1, ATI announced that they would be releasing the newest addition to their line of HDTV processors, the Xilleon 260. The new 260 is the successor to the current 240 chip which has received much praise and success. The 260 is the first system-on-a-chip that supports full HD for worldwide DTV (digital television) standards including Europe, Japan, Korea and North America. Advanced features include HD deinterlacing, 3D comb filter, dynamic contrast, noise reduction, sharpness, and color control to deliver top quality end-to-end performance. Xilleon 260 also offers a full audio subsystem for home theater applications.
The Xilleon 260 is currently being distributed in samples to its customers, and will likely be in use in set-top boxes within the next year. With the big push from TV manufacturers starting to release almost every model of display in full HD capacity, it’s only a matter of time before people will be looking for set-top boxes with the Xilleon 260 logo.
