Hardware, Embedded Systems We all know platforms like the Beagleboard, which are cheap hardware platforms which can be used in all sorts of projects. A new entry into this market is Raspberry Pi, a British ARM board which is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year. For a mere $25, you'll have a fully-configured ARM-based 1080p-capable mini-motherboard. The device is still in development, and only a few days ago, the alpha version of the board was demonstrated running Quake III.

how does 700mhz of ARM map against X86? I had a p2 333mhz machine running quake 3 easily back in 1999. 700 mhz is a lot of processing power depending on what the machine is doing.
