High Definition Playback

We used the Blu-ray edition of Avatar to measure the CPU utilization of each system and the CoreHT's performance was fairly typical, though we were expecting a slightly lower percentage of utilization.

We also tested CPU utilization using a 1080p .mkv copy of Avatar (converted from 1080p Blu-ray). Again, the CoreHT performance was standard but we were surprised it came in behind the Ion 330HT.
