I'm looking for a VGA controller to use with an embedded PPC405-based system.
I had a look at the Silicon Motion chips (712/722) and they seem very
suited for embedded applications.
Unfortunately the techical support claims that these chips, because the
presence of x86 BIOS, support only the x86 architecture. Anybody can
confirm this?

Thanks in advance,
