Hardware, Embedded Systems And yes, another item, right away. I'm on the hunt for a mini-ITX motherboard for use in a living room HTPC, and considering there's so much choice out there, I'm a little confused. Then I realised I have you people to help me out, and, well, one thing led to another.

"The Llano is underpowered for 1080i using advanced deinterlacers and other video post-processing.

I looked up the Anandtech article on AMD A8-3850 for HTPC (http://www.anandtech.com/print/4479) and it does mention problems with 1080p. So I must have been thinking of something else... though now I'm curious whether that can be fixed in software.
"

The suitability of Llano for HTPC is extensively discussed in this AVS Forum thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1333378
The Anandtech article's 1080p60 issues are because of one single post-processing feature (dynamic contrast) in combination with Anandtech's use of DDR3-1333 and discussed starting from page 11.
tl;dr -> posts 343 and 353 summarize the situation.
