Intel finally hit the nail with this chipset win on the upcoming media player from DLink, the Boxee.
At first the the Boxee box were going to come with Nivida Tegra chipset, but now it seems that Dlink have changed horses in midstream.
It is said that the box will launch in November with an retail prise at $199.
Intel have recently won many CE producers over with their CE4100 media chipset, which consists of an Atom Processor, and a GMA 500 video graphic chipset and IO subsystem.  The Boxee is supposed to run the popular OS XMBC known from the media center space. the combination of a powerful chip that can run flash and X86 instructions  and a appealing user interface from the XMBC might reveal the first major upgrade in the embedded media player space, in terms of UI and raw computing power, without sacrificing power consumption and easy on access and startup time.
