IIRC I read on article on /. in which they have Quake running on the prototype boards.  They're quoted as saying that the FPS is pretty good but that the libs need some work yet, plus the hw still needs some tweaking but that they're making good progress.

That was Quake 3 actually.

Yep, wasn't sure when I posted so I left it at Quake and just came back to add that in...

Have to buy a few of their "Model B" units.  Unfortunate that broadcom isn't like Motorola, Intel, etc. and release datasheets openly.  I remember being able to go to the local Motorola sales office and raid their documentation stash... but I guess the tiny guys feel too insecure to allow that...

How silly of me, I was wondering how to plug a LCD to the Raspberry PI's HDMI port, but the device has GPIOs just waiting to be used for such a purpose. ATM they are making the beta board, I think I'll go and buy myself one when the final version of Raspberry PI goes into sell.

will you get model a or b? (this is aimed at the people who plan to make it portable)

while b has the double ram, it also draws more mah (700, the other only 500).

regadring the fact that the dingoo only had 32mb of ram, i think i will go with model a (also because its slightly cheaper).

what do you think?

For me the extra RAM looks tempting, but even with 128MB it should be possible to do lots of cool things. The OS might need some customization, but that should be relatively easy compared to getting data on Chinese devices...

I've been playing with my new RasPi this weekend. I'm one of two people in Singapore who received one.  It fits almost exactly in an Atari 2600 cartridge so I cut out some holes for the ethernet, HDMI and USB ports and it turned out quite nicely. It's powered by Debian squeeze from an ordinary SD card but there are alternatives as well.  Next weekend I'll try a few emulators.

Yeah, I know I need to get around to it. I did prepare the case and it fits very nicely. I used a soldering iron to cut the openings for the ports. Problem was that I couldn't make a video while doing the work.  ;D
