This is an experiment. You are a participant.
For our first video feature, we've decided to take a look at the current status of ATI AVIVO and NVIDIA PureVideo decoding technology. After all, what better way to explain video technology than with a video?
So what's our experiment? Well, it's common knowledge that most video reviews of graphics cards are boring. Someone will stand in front of a camera and ramble for a bit and when you're done, you really haven't learned anything that you couldn't have gotten from a regular written review.
Our question was: what happens if someone takes the time to make video reviews interesting? What if we try to entertain while we inform? Instead of aiming to be a Motor Week or an America's Test Kitchen, why not try to do something that has the cheekiness of Top Gear, the technical passion of Fifth Gear, and the over-the-top drama of Best Motoring or Iron Chef? And if we did this, would anyone care?
Well, you tell me.
