Comments

Did this page used to have

Did this page used to have more information on earlier generations (e.g. Ivy Bridge)?  I followed a link here from a 2500/4000 page, but that generation appears only under Clear Video HD.  I am looking for information on that generation like "Display and Audio Features" and "Wireless Display".  I know that it would need to be processor + PCH combination to get that info.  I have checked datasheets for both the CPUs and the 7 series chipsets, but I don't see info like maximum display resolution (by interface technology) for those.


Hi all.

Hi all.

I just have some small questions

Does the latest NUC's support DTS HD/True HD and if yes wich  models support it and will it work together with win 7 and XBMC intalled or with two boot options win 7 and openelec XBMC

the reason I'm asking is because I'm about to rip all my blu ray's to a nas and I want to be sure before i buy a NUC model that I'm able to have right sound to my surround system.

Kind Regards

sorry to bother you with this

sorry to bother you with this, but i have this very weird problem on my newest laptop: eDP1 display is a disaster, colours all wrong, but the HDMI1 is ok.

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2204287

nomodeset solves the problem for eDP1 (killing the intel driver, fallback to VESA) but I can't get the second display on.

The problem is there for each ubuntu release, but does not exist in win 7 or win 8

The game I play runs very smooth on a low-res and high FX (In game settings) the artifacting goes down a bit when I use higher resolutions so I want to know what to change in my options/Settings/software.


Your Intel HD Graphics

Your Intel HD Graphics technology is not being implimented on All-in-One internal displays in a manor that provides standard HDCP support that works with MediaCenter. I would very much like to see or get a direct comment to this problem especially with Win8 with metro touch being a major motivation to purchase multi-touch enabled All-in-One PC's.
