Default G45 is great at HD video playback

G45 will be able to playback high bitrate Blu-ray movies with acceptable CPU utilisation.
Intelís Taiwanese partners have expressed excitement for Intelís upcoming G45 integrated graphics chipset, with several saying that itís going to be a fantastic solution for HTPC builders.

If we go back to Intelís G35 chipset, there were a number of problems with it Ė probably the biggest being its poor HD video playback performance, which was simply unacceptable for a modern chipset targeted at home theatre PC builders.

The second problem was the lack of support from motherboard vendors Ė only Asus delivered a G35 based board and it was simply too expensive to recommend over boards based on AMDís now retired 690G chipsetónever mind the newer and more feature rich 780G chipset.

With that said, sources inside Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers say that G45 is looking good. When we asked about CPU offload in high bit-rate Blu-ray movies, we were told that during their early testing, theyíre seeing CPU load sitting at around 20 to 35 percent on a dual-core processoróor equivalent to AMDís recently-released 780G chipset.

The sources didnít talk specifically about video quality enhancements, but we expect this has been improved as well, because our sources said that it was a significant update over G35. In fact, itís so significant that one source admitted that ď[G35] was an incomplete solution from our perspective, and thatís why we didnít release a G35 board.Ē
