Little things that matter in language design
BTW: what about graphics chipset(s?) included in popular ARM/MIPS SoC?

*The Mini-12 uses a variant of the 'full embedded' Atom processor + Atom-oriented chipset that Intel and friends intended for the MID/handheld market. Typically Atom-based netbooks/laptops (like the mini-9) use older Intel laptop-oriented chipsets like the 915g or 945g and the chipset uses more energy then the actual cpu.
These use the PowerVR SGX core.
Now for the Dell Mini-12 and other Atom-based systems Intel provides the proprietary Poulsbo OpenGL driver (along with OSS DRM and 2D driver).
I don't know about the OMAP3 stuff...
Now if you looked at Tungsten graphic's documentation for Gallium they mentioned PowerVR with pretty much every other sentance. I don't know the status of any of that stuff, though. Especially since Tungstan graphics has been bought out by Vmware.
