getting HD without the cons
Hardware flash support sounds good to me, tempting to get one to put in my laptop, it can struggle with the more difficult flash games even with a 1.8GHz C2D.
I may finally have a use for the empty "HSDPA" slot.
Do we know how it compare in power consumption to an ION chipset, bearing in mind you will have to have the Intel one too?
yes, yes it does ^_^
I prefer if manufacturers used ION over this, but what the heck, I should count my blessings before wanting more.
Broadcom are Linux haters.
They've never released linux drivers for their wifi chips, they won't for this.
I'm looking towards ION for next time.
can they put one on a low profile pci card, for those atom boards that didnt have an ion chipset ????
This will be the first then : http://www.broadcom.com/support/crystal_hd/
Already on the way to XBMC : http://xbmc.org/davilla/2009/12/29/broadcom-crystal-hd-its-magic/
I would have preferred that they'd created a back-end to VA-API for the Linux support and then seen to implementing further support for that within XBMC, but it's really, really awesome to see a unilateral support coming for a new piece of hardware so soon. Now to see about buying one in PCI-E x1 guise!
Read that, colour me genuinely surprised.
