    The statements linked to in posting #19 sound like a plan to me :-)


    Well...a plan to address it later, yeah.

    Radeon HD 2D and 3D support? Probably later.

    PCIe X1 support for the SAM460CR, later.

    I do get it.

    And you could add either a sound card or an SATA controller to the PCI-e slot, so if an SATA card was implemented, the PCI slot could be used with an SB Live.

    Although the simplest solution (once PCI-e X1 support is sorted out)would be to just support the hardware Acube would ship with a CR based system (the HD4650 video card, SiliconImage SATA card, and Tremor based PCI-e X1 sound card).

    Again, its just a matter of patience.

    They say it's HD5450.

    They say it's VT1724 "Envy24HT". But as metatron said, the picture clearly shows "VT1723 Tremor" written on the chip. Could be a case of false advertising.

    Yes, its not as nice as the Envy, but then does OS4 support more than two channel sound anyway?

    The HD5450 doesn't sound like much of an upgrade.
    Maybe its just getting harder to find the 4650s.

    OS4 uses AHI so most likely not. Still this doesn't warrant selling a VT1723-based card as a VT1724-based one. But maybe it's really a VT1724 card and it's just the picture that has been poorly chosen.

    Performance-wise it should be a downgrade even.

    Yes, and Warp3D has been announced for HD5xxx but not for HD4xxx.
