Microsoft, Intel to support HD-DVD
October 5, 2005

The companies will develop the hardware and software needed to add HD-DVD support to personal computers.
The development potentially bolsters Toshiba’s place in the high-definition recorder/player market, which recently seemed to slip with the announcement that HD-DVD hardware availability had been postponed until early 2006.
