Maybe you techhies can figure out these specifications, because it's a mystery to me. There'a also a Product Brief (pdf 160mb document) to download, if you want. This is what's going into the new Mac Minis, courtesy of XLR8YOURMAC.com.

It was built from the ground up and fully optimized as a hardware codec for h.264 (by most accounts the finest mp4 codec available for video)

This is the dirty little secret that nobody is talking about. It is what makes me think that the mini is just one small step away from being the home media center. The GMA950 will be able to encode 3 or more streams of hi-def, compress them, and write them to disk while decoding another stream of hi-def and outputting it. All the while the cpu can crunch an mp3 or run the GUI. I can't wait to see it in action. A true TiVo killer.






















Ah @#$%& nevermind. It will probably suck like most graphics systems that use shared system memory. But a guy can dream.
