[BBC] Bare bones Raspberry Pi PC gets ready to launch - Page 2

post #11 of 33
these mini systems are really cool... i want to order like 10 and CNC a case for it, and make media players and a system for a car and....

just so many cool uses.

Android would work if someone felt like porting it (I doubt that anyone will as mainstream distros offer already working solutions that don't depend on Google). I would recommend Debian, Fedora, or Meego/Mer (esp with XBMC if you want an HTPC).

Also, despite the presence of a $25 unit, the $35 unit is much better as it offers twice the RAM (128 vs 265), an extra USB port (instead of just one), and an ethernet port.

OK but whats the CPU ? (i mean the exact model, exact spec) Do you need Ram, HDD/SSD, Case, PSU?!

Here are the specs.

The SOC is a Broadcom BCM2835. This is the same one used by the Roku 2 and a better Broadcom chip (GPU-wise) than the one in the Nokia n8. The CPU is an ARM11 @ 700Mhz.

Edit: about the Roku 2. The only major hardware features offered by the Roku 2 and not by the Raspberry are wifi/bluetooth, IR, 256MB NAND,

The GPU is a mystery. The GPU is a dual-core VideoCore 4 with 24GFLOPS (compare to 14.4GFLOPS for the ipads 200Mhz PowerVR SGX543MP2. Interesting note: the GPU in the wii is believed to be 12-14GFLOPS). The situation is fantastic GPU and beyond crappy CPU. The reason for the choice is (supposedly) that the guys in charge of the project have an in with Broadcom and thus can get the chips cheaper.

GPU core: a Broadcom VideoCore GPU providing OpenGL ES 1.1, OpenGL ES 2.0, hardware-accelerated OpenVG 1.1, Open EGL, OpenMAX and 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode. There are 24 GFLOPS of general purpose compute and a bunch of texture filtering and DMA infrastructure. Eben worked on the architecture team for this and the Raspberry Pi team are looking at how they can make some of the proprietary features available to application programmers

DSP core: There is a DSP, but there isn't currently a public API (Liz thinks the BC team are keen to make one available at some point)

RAM: 128MiB (Model A) or 256MiB (Model B) of SDRAM. The RAM is physically stacked on top of the Broadcom media processor (package-on-package technology)

LAN9512 (Data Brief | Data Sheet) providing 10/100Mb Ethernet and 2x USB 2.0 (Model B)

I wouldn't mind picking one up. It looks rather cool.

Just saw it can push 1080p video. Definitely going to pick one of these up. I also saw that it supports Linux, hopefully it'll be GUI based not text based.

Did you not see LXDM running? Also him running Midori?

No I didn't my bad.
You wouldn't happen to have a link to that would you?
