RasPi / Ouya

Assuming the similarities between the RasPi/Ouya (Both 3D capable, both relatively similar CPUs) should be looking to start programming competitions to write games/apps that can simultaneously run on both? It'd be fantastic to see a benchmark for the GPU on each, then the CPU. Would there be a lot o...

Re: Microsoft and ARM

<t>I've not read enough on this so far but I can't comment. This does however sound just like what Microsoft did with netbooks (classify it based on their rules as opposed to the manufacturers) so when(if) we all switch to ARM they have the entire market. x64 will always exist, but potentially to a ...

Re: 80's retro case suggestion

I just had a cool idea for a case for my RasPi. It has easy access, solid with a view port so you can see the device and an 80's retro feel. It's also quite cheap.

Take a look at Maplin, here's the link (minor modification may be needed!)

Re: uk gaming industry

The ultimate question:

Who's gonna be first to put one of these babies into a BBC/C64/Amiga/Spectrum-style box and sell them to us? (Seriously, a large number of people on here have nostalgia to the days of old, as much to the progress of technology and the RasPi itself!)

Re: News articles and blog posts about Raspberry Pi

I don't think point 6 should be worded to include the IT crowd, it suggests that people that aren't propellerheads etc. do not think of turning the computer off and on again, that said it should be replaced with people don't think of something as simple as resetting a computer !

One of each if I can (model B first) so I can develop an OS on it, then scale it to back to the model A.

Re: BCM2835 Memory Map

Thanks for the info guys!

@Burngate I imagine that the memory space left would be 128MB/256MB minus the GPU blob size. Can anyone divulge if this is true and also what the size of the blob is?

Re: Hows this for a power supply?

I have the first one lying around (as a charger for my home and work mobile phones) - When these come out I\'ll attempt to connect a USB DVD drive (the el-cheapo LG one) and the Pi to it simultaneously.
