yes 3 directions for Desktop MB cpu :

- intel
- arm (already for server, soon for desktop ?, at low price due to smartphone market)
- tegra ? there is already works about gpu support in the kernel 3.8 see http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n ... px=MTIyNTc
and some smartphone have almost enough power, ram (1 Gb or 2Gb), mass storage (16 Gb) to operate a linux distribution

for nvidia 310 driver it's difficult to understand if it is useful if you don't play games for example mail, websurf, office, movie, tv stream
