Intel You'd think this sort of stuff belonged to the past - but no.

Supposedly, this chip is "designed for Windows 8". What?

The PowerVR is also used in the ARM Pandaboard, and is fully accelerated on Linux. Both hardware mpeg4 encoding and decoding are available via GStreamer plugins and it has full X support with hardware acceleration. The drivers are not open-source, but that's a totally different issue.
