Pretty impressive for integrated graphics... On Tom's they OC'd from the 500Mhz stock to 900Mhz LOL!!! Considering the innate overclocking potential and it's ability to unload the CPU by having complete HD video decoding support it would make a nice board for a low-profile HTPC rig.

The 55nm fab process also makes it the most energy efficient chipset out there.
