Crysis requires x86, this is arm tongue.gif

Nice to see it use Mali-400 for the GPU. It should cover most videos up to 1080p including AVI and MKV no problem at all. Plus, there are cool apps that provide an XBMC-like experience such as Mizuu. biggrin.gif

Excuse me if i sound stupid, but how is it powered? These little linux 'puters are fascinating. I couldnt decide between raspberry pi or cotton candy, and now we have this little guy.

The article is misleading. The A10 isn't 1.5GHz, it's an A8 running only at 1GHz with the Chinese designer of the A10 having added up all the functions of the CPU to reach 1.5.

Here is a link detailing the CPU at 1.2 (CPU+decoder I believe):

Well there is no such thing as A10 lol. A8, A9 and then A15.

It's commonplace in China for designers to give random numbers to their designs to make it look better than it is. I think there's a Brazilian designer that has done this as well and given their chip some odd number.
