    Nothing new here, we know the first days of a Fedora release are a pain in the ass.
    I have a laptop with a GM45 (4500MHD) that works just fine with F12 without any manuall tuning.

    KMS, OpenGL, Compiz (no tearing!),OpenGL ontop of compiz, Video playback, Flash all are working fine.

    I yet have to find something that is "broken".

    I suspect the difference comes from improvements in the memory management code.

    It is really unclear how h264 should be faster with a newer intel drivers. You can only use xv for it (no vaapi support yet) and that's more or less the same for every driver.

    If you encode mpeg2 full hd or fetch a mpeg2 (interlaced) broadcast from somewhere then you should be able to see a difference with a new mplayer-vaapi. Sadly deinterlace is not available with it yet - but OSD works at least. I have got no script for fedora, but with debian or ubuntu with libdrm >= 2.4 this one should work.

    pal/ntsc res is no real test for this as mpeg2 is not really demanding for current cpus.
