Nvidia has recently put up documentation detailing a new media processor geared at the next generation of mobile smartphones.  The APX 2500 is based on the ARM11 MPCore and supports several 3D features, such as OpenGL ES 2.0, D3D Mobile (mobile version of Direct3D), and built-in programmable vertex and lighting support.
Now something that Nvidia is really pushing with this is the video playback.  The APX 2500 features the "industry's first HD 720p video on a mobile device," provided by HDMI 1.2 support.  This will allow you play HD video on your big-screen TV straight off a mobile device.

Hey all, I've got an issue. I'm entirely new to overclocking and the thing is, when I go into my BIOS and try to manually start overclocking I don't even know where to start. There's so many different voltage settings I can change, and a bunch of memory timings I'm not even gonna look at (cuz I'm scared lol) and I don't know where the FSB timimgs and w/e is for my processor. My board is the ASUS Striker II Formula, processor is the Pentium 4 640 (Prescott) 3.2GHz, memory is Crucial Ballistix DDR2-6400 PC2 800. Any help for a total n00b (THATS MEEE!! :) )would be much appreciated :D

You need to set ai overclock tuning to manual... Then it comes up with FSB and memory speed boxes, you need to enter a new fsb in the fsb box.. Fortunately using a striker means memory will stay the same speed.
I cant help you much more, i just sold my striker, and ive never used a striker II...
