   My main concern would be just getting the basic widescreen resolution 
support with HDTVs right. This was my main problem with the Intel driver
when I was still using it. Some of my TVs generated crap PnP information
an my Intel GPUs could not cope.

   The combination of Linux+Intel+TV was hit or miss.

   If that weren't an issue any more then some of the newer i3/i5 boards
would have a chance of handling high res decode through brute force.
