"Adding advanced video effects that simplify and enhance the creative experience requires a tremendous amount of raw processing power. The extreme computing capabilities of Nvidia's CUDA-ready GeForce GPUs provide the perfect platform for innovative developers like CyberLink to improve how consumers creatively manage and share their growing libraries of video," said Michael Steele, General Manager, Visual Consumer Solutions at Nvidia. "Power Director 7 clearly makes video editing easier and more powerful. We're excited to help enable this for consumers and look forward to CyberLink's continued innovation with CUDA and GeForce processors for other exciting consumer video and imaging tools."

As reported by the folks at TechConnect, PowerDirector 7 is set to kick off sometime during Q4 this year.
