Default Boxee's Switch from Nividia's Tegra to Intel CE4100

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.anandtech.com/show/3912/boxee-box-the-inside-story' target='_blank'>http://www.anandtech.com/show/3912/...he-inside-story</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The Boxee Box announced at the 2010 CES was based on the Tegra 2. In a post made on my personal blog right after the CES announcement, I had expressed my reservations on how it would be foolhardy to expect the same sort of performance from an app-processor based device as what one would expect from a dedicated media streamer or HTPC. Just as suspected, Boxee had to replace Tegra 2 with a much more powerful SoC. After evaluating many solutions, Boxee and D-Link decided to choose the Atom based Intel CE4100 for the Boxee Box."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//dht/auto/1285880486.usr1.png" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>A great article on the Boxee Box and how the switch from NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chip to the Intel CE4100 will enable the Boxee Box to really deliver on a high-quality experience in terms of hardware-assisted playback of HD video content. Will the software measure up? My <a href="http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~ssanty/cgi-bin/eightball.cgi" target="_blank">Magic 8 Ball says</a> "It's looking likely". Let's hope that's the case!</p>
