Looks like the open source drivers have been updated (and includes video playback acceleration) for AMD Fusion.
Anyone tested this yet? Does it get good frame rates in linux?

I'm mostly worried about bitstreaming audio... the projected price range is from 100 - 130ish, which is great for an integrated solution /w bitstreaming.

This is the 1st Zacate board I have seen for sale:
Once more of these start hitting the streets and prices come down this is quite a bit of board for a really good price.

That's a good question. What needs to be done to make use of the video playback acceleration under xbmc?

I dont want to buy Atom anymore if there is a better, faster alternative named fusion. But for now there might be glitches with Linux (XBMC) and hardware acceleration (as stated in this thread).
Now I have 2 questions:
1. Will the fusion apu run without any flaws in Windows7 (XBMC) with DXVA2?
2. Would it make any difference to install kernel 2.6.38 in XBMC Live (Linux) regarding more stable hardware acceleration?
