HD on 6800GS AGP

Yesterday I tried to watch a movie trailer in HD and it could barely play it at 480P and wouldn't play it at 720P. I thought that my card supported HD. Could someone clarify that for me?

The 6800 AGP core had broken HD support from what I remember, Playing HD wmv files on my system nearly maxes out the cpu.

In case anyone is wondering this also includes 6800GT/Ultra PCI-E cards becase they used a bridge chip though I believe nvidia actually made a 12pipe only native PCI-E core as well.
