A GameModo fan sent us a video of a computer that costs £15/$25 running Quake 3 that can run at full 1080p. Are you mad? Was the first impression that came to mind. Well no it seems not, the Raspberry Pi foundation based in the UK is a charity that aims to get Children into learning more about computers and programming.
Features of the Raspberry Pi include:
- 700MHz ARM11
- 128MB or 256MB of SDRAM
- OpenGL ES 2.0
- 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode
- Composite and HDMI video output
- USB 2.0
- SD/MMC/SDIO memory card slot
- General-purpose I/O
- Optional integrated 2-port USB hub and 10/100 Ethernet controller
- Open software (Ubuntu, Iceweasel, KOffice, Python)
They intend to have units ready in November/December time this year and will ship to any country. Anyone can buy one aswell and is not just limited to learning or children. Might be cool for old games and surfing the net. It will apparently be the size of a credit card.
