In the News The desktop and laptop world is dominated by x86, the mobile/embedded world by ARM. Conventional wisdom, right? Not really. There's also MIPS - hundreds of millions of embedded devices run on MIPS, and for years now, the architecture has been trying to break into the mobile world dominated so much by ARM. They just a got a boost: MIPS has been acquired by Imagination Tech, most known for its PowerVR graphics chips used in a lot of smartphones and tablets.

RaspberryPI is based on Broadcom's SoC with Broadcom's VideoCore4 GPU. Broadcom is not Qualcomm, though not much better then Qualcomm.

This is why I should never post anything on the web when I'm too tired to keep highly focused on something (such as the RPi FAQ) for more than a few minutes :/

Apologies for the double-fail everyone.
