Boxee Box Opts For Intel CE4100 SOC
I have to say dropping Tegra for an Atom based SOC makes the Boxee Box a lot more interesting.
The ideal solution in the living room would combine the popular UI of
HTPC based media centers with the decoding power of the present day
media streamers. Unfortunately, these UIs are dependent on some sort of
OpenGL acceleration being made available in the base platform. Till now,
the powerful media streamer platforms from Sigma Designs and Realtek
have had very rudimentary OpenGL support, which makes porting XBMC onto
such platforms an exercise in frustration.
