There's a lot going on in the hardware accelerated HDTV area lately.
Beside the two big graphic chipsets, there's the Intel Atom/Poulsbo
chipset offering full HDTV acceleration at low power, the Intel G45
chipset, the AMD 780G chipset, and a cooperation of NVidia and VIA for a
new unnamed HD capable low cost chipset.
The question is: Which of them will offer decent open source drivers for
HD decoding, and when?
