Default Lower-end 6xxx cards and PureVideo support

I posted this on Rage3D, thought maybe i'd get a better response here:

Quote:
According to this, the only low-end card to support the full PureVideo feature set is the 6600GT, every card below that is missing either spatial-temporal de-interlacing, bad error correction, and/or inverse telecine. However, looking at newegg and other online retailers, some cards are listed as having these features. For example, this 6600LE card. Down at the Features section, it specifically mentions "Advanced Spatial Temporal De-interlacing".

So, do these cards support the full PureVideo feature set like online retailers are saying or not?

Yes, lower-end cards have some purevideo features restricted.

^^Complete list of features available by card.

As for that 6600LE specifically, it supports "Spatial Temporal De-interlacing" for standard definition, but not HD. Since the TigerDirect page you linked to specifically mentions DVDs (Standard definition), they are technically correct.

Is this a technical issue (the cards aren't powerful enough for it) or a driver issue?
