I can work some sources and try to get you a Beta BIOS or at least more details when it will be released.

At the time being, GMA 3000 seems to be the overall faster solution than the GMA X3000. I hope this is going to change with an upcoming release, and the X3000 still got untapped power-resources of some sort.
On a side note, The Intel-board tested in the shootout performs incredibly well in everything concerning I/O-performance. Audio Quality is top-notch as well, at least concerning playback functionality.
If there's anything else you'd like to have translated, feel free to ask
Still working on it, I'll let you know if I come up with anything. If you happen to find anything, be sure to report back.
Well, today there was another BIOS update released (I check for those on a near-daily basis), and the changelog doesn't speak of anything remotely regarding memory compatibility. F*ck it, I'm going to get new DIMM right now.
