This is clear as it would require lot of unnecessary memory copying.

I can't find any decent specification of Moorestown, does it use PowerVR GPU core like Poulsbo? If NO I can understand that it won't be backported, otherwise it is pretty shame Intel :(( PSB seems to be spread nowadays starting from cheap laptops finishing on embedded systems (that's my case). And it seems all PSB owners wanting to run Linux are left alone looking at Intel.
Anyone knows other embedded system having similar TDP and performance to Z530(PSB) supporting LIBVA & OpenGL completely? Can be any producer... But we desperately need one, since we are stuck with Z530.
