    It says part of it has been opened up, not that it hasn't been touched yet. If it's anything like the camera, it must've been running a more generic driver up until now.

    Either way, it will still improve the graphics capability of the phone.

    ok Since my knowledge is lacking in this area, I'll ask
    In what way will this benefit me, an avg-light power user.
    As I see it you would need to download new drivers and install or wait for OTA update to actually see a diff.
    And then what would that improve?

    Basically, nothing more than games. Faster frame rates and things like that. It might improve video processing as well.

    Better video is better video. Anything associated with it will be improved. This is good news.

    its good to see our phone having more up its sleeve. Both with video capability and in terms of its powerhouse.

    Do you think it will get any where near the likes of the droid x gpu?

    The droid x still has a better gpu, but this should narrow the gap.

    It helps developers make their software run more efficiently on the Inc (or other snapdragon devices) leading to more performance. It'd be a while before we see anything different from HTC for sense, but games will improve as long as developers make the effort.
