Bad news for NVIDIA, whose Tegra 2 chipset has been dropped by D-Link and Boxee for the upcoming Boxee Box by D-Link
. According to
Boxee's Avner Ronen, despite NVIDIA's hype the Tegra 2 chipset couldn't cope with H.264 HD video as it was able to with high-profile VC-1, and as such they replaced it with Intel's Atom CE4100. Boxee has partnered with Amazon and Best Buy to kick off preorders of the now $229 Boxee Box later on today.
Boxee has been in touch to let us know that, while the MRSP of the Boxee Box will be $229, it'll be up for preorder - and have a street price - of $199.
