They'll have the main ARM CPU for the main stuff, and then dedicated pieces of hardware for video decoding (and now crypto), since they are dedicated they can optimized for that ONE task and be able to do it faster and with using less power.
Thanks for the explanation. Here I thought would get Netflix on Linux soonish. Though, I guess we will eventually get a full HTML implementation...
