      just because opensource? why not buy an amd card and enjoy an real good opensource driver?
      I've been waiting for SB b/c of Anand's tests that showed the 12EU version beating the low end discrete chips in almost all instances and being competitive with a few of the next level up cards. In my experience (with Nvidia and Intel), Intel has been the only one to provide a tear-free desktop (though not with regards to video on my 945m) without resorting to OGL. I'm going to buy an SB chip (specifically a socket 1156 xeon when it is released) b/c the graphics have been good and I don't have this ridiculous instability that is partly caused by, IMHO, Nvidia's driver. I will buy AMD cards and look forward to Bulldozer and Fusion in general, but I want the gallium drivers to be in better shape and the state trackers be available for off-loading some of the video playback (cpu is simply not fast enough on high bitrate even with threading).

        Here is an Idea! One version of a Linux distribution supported for 10 years.
        Then that one driver works for 10 years. It's unbelievable!

        You'd have programs lining up to use those I/O towers.
        Drivers from hardware vendors would all become available over night.
        It's called RHEL, 7-10 yrs of support and stable ABI.

        Not sure why everyone doesn't use it :-)

          i prefer debian based stuff... maybe other people think in the same way.

          but hey long life to redhat and RHEL (but i don't use it)

            You musta missed the smiley, I wasn't actually being serious, though I do wonder what Debian distro gives 7-10 year lifetime with stable ABIs.

              Please add an article on HTPC use w/ Sandy Bridge on Linux

              I'm more interested in the 35W chips...they have QuickSync for transcoding (getting rid of commercials) and they slept w/ the RIAA so you can finally get audio on the same HDMI cable that goes to your TV/receiver w/o running a separate spdif cable

              Here's a good review of Windows use:

                Hmm, it doesn't look very bad at least on most of this graphs. But nexuiz's results is tragic in term of performance. Hope they will fix this quickly.

                  Ummm what does transcoding have to do with getting rid of commercials? To get rid of commercials you usually edit the raw original video stream.
