    Not much specs on Rockchip's RK29xx, but guessing from their current line of RK28xx chips, it would be going back in performance if GTV switches from Intel Atom CE4100 to it.

    Seems like Rockchip's are for lower-end/price market. Boxee dropped Nvidia's latest dual-core ARM-based in flavor of CE4100 due to performance, so unless Rockchip is able to advance from its current ARM9-based RK28xx to some leading edge dual-core ARM solution beating out Nvidia's, RK29xx-based GTV will be slower in performance compared to the current Atom one. :p

    @slaZ actually the most interesting thing about the Rockchip hardware is the dual GPUs. Being able to do transcoding on the chip plus the ability for GPUs to be written to directly makes it for an nice platform, however, the Intel chipset also uses GPU technology. CPU type and speed are much less interesting of a conversation these days when discussing video.
