Submission + - Viiv Versus Live!, Battle For The Living Room ?

Spinnerbait writes: " Intel Viiv and AMD Live! branding and standardization efforts for Media Center PC architectures have their pluses and minuses, depending on what you intend to do with your system. While Intel imposes strict guidelines on system builders for the use of Intel chipsets with integrated graphics, AMD's Live! platform allows for third party chipset vendors like NVIDIA to enter the fray. As a result, pre-built systems based on Intel Viiv branding may come up short, when you consider how strong an AMD platform may be with an nForce IGP chipset versus the i965G. Viiv versus Live! is an interesting dynamic for the DYI market, where you can definitely build yourself a more capable Intel-based HTPC that isn't Viiv compliant."
