In my experience with the Foxconn ION boxes, you do not need to allocate 
512 Mb to graphics in order for VDPAU to work correctly, even at 1080i. 
This confirms what an nVidia tech said in their forums. It's only when 
you have non-integrated graphics that you need at least 512 Mb.

Of course, this does nothing to contradict your observation concerning 
memory speed. I'm just suggesting that the memory size may not be relevant.
