The framebuffer is basically just what it sounds like, a buffer (some
memory) where X can draw the video (or frames). The reason why it's
not as good is not because it's a framebuffer but because the pvr 350
doesn't do any video processing itself (except for mpeg2) so all
processing must be done by the cpu. This is different from most
regular video cards (like the nvidia cards) where some of the video
processing can be offloaded to the card.
I probably still have a few gmail invites.
Drop me a line (off list) if you'd like an account.
