Where did you get it? I am looking for a decent framebuffer, that is, if they
don't wost too much ;-)

My ultra5 currently has an 8 bit framebuffer which is quit slow. I don't know
if a 270 MHz is beefy enough to watch movies divx, mpeg,...[1]) but I guess I
need one that supports hardware scaling. I have no idea what all these Sun
framebuffers are capable of.

[1] Someone I know played those on a 200 MHz Amd-K6, wasn't exactly fluently
