I had sent off a message to some Intel contacts, and am hoping for their reply in time for this article -- to comment both on the features implemented/not-yet-implemented and any performance tuning.

I have read the GMA 3000 white-paper when it was initially released as well as extensively investigating other areas of its architecture as well.

I'll likely comment on Compiz and AIGLX in the article as well.

I'm hoping to compare the GMA 3000 performance to the R300 open-source drivers with an ATI Radeon X300 and X800, and more if time permits.
