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?

Depends a lot of which ARM!
Some ARM doesn't have FPU..
The website says that it's an ARM11 which means that it has "32 bit SIMD", Jazelle, DSP, Thumb-2, but the FPU is optional and I don't know if the Broadcom BCM 2835 has one..

It doesn't have SIMD instructions but it has an FPU.
