* LinuxDevices indepth on AMD Alchemy

LinuxDevices have an in-depth look at AMD's new Alchemy chipset, which is designed to allow multimedia transfers that bypass the processor:

According to AMD, the Alchemy Au1200 can be used to build devices that download and display content directly from PCs and from PVRs, without the time-consuming need to "transcode" the content, or convert it to any particular format. This is possible, AMD says, because the Au1200 features hardware acceleration for MPEG, DivX, H.263, and WMV9, along with an integrated graphics controller support supporting "full D1 resolution."
If you're not a tech monkey, you may not need to read in THIS much depth, but it's a nice read for those who need to know how things work.
