The issue here is actually that it's a bit muddy. AMD sold off the
embedded GPU unit to Qualcomm, although Qualcomm (msm boards) use a
z180/z430 I believe, although I'm not entirely sure what the changes
are, and the Freescale mx51 and mx53 use z160/z430 (mx51 is clocked at
133mhz, mx53 is clocked at 200mhz)
The mx6 will be using a Vivante GPU.
