    Be aware that buying a random 780G mobo now and expecting it to be perfectly supported in coreboot soon will probably lead to disappointment.

    Coreboot supports only a select few mobos, namely the ones that are owned by the coreboot developers and/or where manufacturers have been cooperative enough. So if you are interested in coreboot it would be wise to wait which mobos are going to receive support at all.

    What's the latest about CoreBoot on Intel platforms?

    I seem to recall hearing they're nowhere near as open about this as they are when it comes to GPUs. Is this still the case today? Are there any petitions or lobbying going on to convince them otherwise?

    Of course we switch the manufacturer of the graphics card not because of the graphics card but we like the open source politics amd is doing!

    I don't see a reason to switch gfx card - you usually don't boot from a gfx card A Phenom II as testsystem for Coreboot would be nice, i don't like outdated slow systems. But i guess OC would not possible with CB.

    Wait there, don't take that step too soon, still the oss drivers sucks for newer cards, no power management and a lot of useful features are nowhere to be seen. 3D sucks and all of that.

    Maybe in a year or so they will be good oss drivers but not yet. If you switch you will be another of the AMD/ATI depressed users.

    Now, I really like this announcement, because that documentation benefits my chipset, and I sure hope the oss drivers get better for me now, they are improving, and are getting there but still there is like a year or 2 until they are the best oss graphic drivers.

    Nice! Sort of been waiting for this since I bought my newest mb. I guess I now can actually expect superfast booting sometime in the future. Kudos to AMD & co for making this happen

    This is not entirely correct. Zheng Bao worked on coreboot support in his working time, but did some cleanups and stabilization work in his spare time.

    Yes, it it amazing. I wonder if Bridgman is behind this push as well?
