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.

The thing is ultra-proprietary with a massive 32 MB binary blob being loaded at bootloader's init with GPU firmware support. Ubuntu support was dropepd because the SoC is ARM11 (ARMv6) and Ubuntu binaries are compiled for ARMv7.
