      all I want for christmas from amd/ati is video acceleration, I am still (yes still) pondering whether to go for an amd mainboard (690g w/ BE2350) or an intel mainboard (g33/g35 w/pentium e21*0)

          that is ? I am really still stuck, honestly.

          Pro Intel:
          + As per Michael Intel will be getting Xvmc in the open driver some time
          + Better processor
          + More powerful chipset
          + I expect no/low problems with standbye etc

          Pro AMD:
          + 690G has been around ==> good support
          + Power consumption a bit lower
          + No need to buy TV-out ADD2 board (currently do not have an HDTV yet)

          that is where I am at

            I would not say that something with AMD IGP chipset has "good" support. Maybe you read this board not correctly enough.

              to be fair, yes I have seen the problems with it, but I think they are surmountable, I might go intel though after such encouragement

              now the case.... I am limited on space gotta get that measuring stick out again

                I think the radeon hd will take over

                  my thoughts exactly.

                  when radeonhd gets better and more functional ati will most likely make and add-on blob to it with all the proprietary stuff getting (optionally) linked at build-time :]

                    If it does that it'll have to change it's windows driver as well since they've gone to an integrated driver for both.

                    Taking a blob of code out of it and just expecting it to work without being completely rewritten for radeonhd is like believing in fairies and pixie dust.

                      i didn't say that. i said "ati will most likely make and add-on blob", basing on radeonhd codebase :]

                      i'm not sure about licensing issues. that might make it impossible.
