Could you test your boards with HD-material, for example some movie
trailers? Could you please share your results, what resolutions are
possible to play and how much the system usage is doing so?

I found the following on VDR-Portal. Your mpstat results for playing SD
material [2] and x.264 encoded material [3] from [8]. [4] has a row
»HDTV Video Wiedergabe« which says non-fluent playback. [5] claims to be
playing 1080p HD material on an ASUS EeePC 901. Specifications for the
GMA 950 from Intel state »HDTV 480i/p, 576i/p, 720i/p and 1080i/p
display resolution support« [7]. [6] says something similar.

So is the following summary correct? The hardware is capable to play
certain HDTV resolutions, but the xf86-video-intel driver does not
support it yet.
