ATI has really disappointed me, for the fact that their graphics card in the Wii can't do native 720p. It may be because of the lack of drivers (take a look at any phone with the Qualcomm 72xx series with ATI's GPU) or that Nintendo doesn't seem to care for better graphics with the new user/fanbase. But no one except ATI or Nintendo really know the true capabilities of the graphics card. I do have some hope though for the unreleased titles that are known to be the pinnacle of their generation's consoles in Nintendo, such as F-Zero, Starfox, Zelda. If you remember the last three generations, these games pushed the limits of the console they were on. Example: Starfox for SNES, and Starfox Assault for GC, Zelda Majora's mask for N64, F-Zero for the Gamecube.
    Completely agree, Intel should not be in the GPU business, and them thinking their GPU's can make their way into a next-gen gaming console (from N or otherwise) is laughable. I have a lot of respect for Intel's CPU's and network IC's, both rock solid for the last many years. But it's really hard to try and find a decently priced laptop on the shelf without the crappy Intel X series GPU in it, unless you aren't a gamer, of course.
