What's actually accelerated by GMA500?

Post by radioxid »

Hi there,

More than movies or video stream, what is accelerated?
Normal desktop computing? like background image or windows?
or is it atom-ed ?
And are games accelerated?

GDI, DirectX, DXVA are all accelerated. OpenGL isn't.
Games behavior is discussed in this forum eg http://www.fit-pc2.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=1336
