AMD Xilleon processors will receive DivX certification DivX has announced that it will be teaming up with AMD to certify a few of its new Xilleon processors meaning native DivX functionality could be coming for HDTVs and set-top boxes.
For those unfamiliar, the Xilleon line of chips are "a system-on-a-chip MIPS processor found in set-top boxes and digital TVs" and was formerly a project of the large video card maker ATI. ATI was acquired recently by AMD and the project continued on. There has been no word on which of chips in the line will be certified.

In the past few months AMD has announced a new line of Xilleon panel processors which promise "advanced motion compensation and frame rate conversion for future LCD digital TVs." The use of the processor should result in clearer picture for all displays that use it.
