I'd like to know how underutilized the 855GM chips that shipped with
Centrino laptops are. Seems like lots of cool new stuff (modesetting
especially) is 'i915 and later' only, and I was wondering if that's
hardware capability or you'll be getting to those of us on (not-so-much)
older hardware later.
I would love to see the TV out on my 855GM Thinkpad work properly. Or to
not need 'i810switch' to power a projector (and have text crawl because
of the low refresh rate).
