  • Stupid question

    Hi,
    The more I read the less I know ;-)


    I want buy notebook with GMA 4500HD.

    I have one fundamental question ;-)

    Does Ubuntu supports this video card ?
    - Auto-detect card
    - Compiz will works well
    - I can watch movie

    If GMA 4500HD is good solution for laptop + Linux ?

    Now i have GF 8600gt and i haven't any problem.

    My question was maybe no precision : Does opensource driver supports 3d desktop, movie etc. ?

      Via VA-API you could get mpeg2 accelleration now, but currently no h264, also vc1 accelleration is not even planned. Current Nvidia gfx chips support VDPAU which is the best solution for hd video playback. So it depends of the definition of "movie"
