I have a netbook (Atom N450, GMA 3150) and I am wondering if the Broadcom Crystal HD would improve the framerate I get with OnLive in 720p.

OnLive is a cloud gaming service that uses the H.264 codec.

Broadcom claims that their Crystal HD card accelerates H.264 HD playback.

Will it accelerate anything using H.264 or does the specific program used have to be supported by the drivers?

Thanks! :D

are you planing to buy a netbook with broadcom chip in there ?

if yes, don't buy it, you better of buying zacate netbook, because it will be faster and accelerate video better, and have better support also
