Nvidia video is a pretty poor choice for Linux too— you're tied to
their proprietary drivers which often cause weird bugs (usually the #1
cause of kernel panics on the kernelopps data collection project,
right ahead of a proprietary wifi driver), and that driver ties you to
whatever kernel and xorg versions they are willing to support.

I'm not sure why the Intel video would be a problem for SDR apps. The
Intel video in my laptop is great, though perhaps the atom has
something more limited.
