Hardware, Embedded Systems Remember the Raspberry Pi ARM board we talked about last week? Well, while running Quake III is all fine and dandy and illustrates the board is capable of something, it didn't really tell me anything since I'd guess few people are going to use such a board for gaming. So, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Raspberry Pi team posted another demo today - running 1080p video for eight hours straight. The chip was still cool to the touch. And just to reiterate: $25.

1080P is all fine and dandy but as I mentioned in the previous thread about these, I'd love to see what it can do with 1080i, and the quality of the deinterlacing -- assuming it's capable of that in hardware.

We'll see, but for $25-$35 they're too cheap not to get one to monkey around with.
