well, at least this is one of the more reasonable suggestions, although I doubt the RPF will see a need for such a change of SoC soon. But indeed, who knows in a couple of years, when that SoC is as "trailing edge" as this one.HappyPiUser wrote:Since this is the "Pi in the sky" thread...and it's April 1st....
Basic hardware specs for Model C:
Dual ARM Cortex A9 at 1 GHz
Integrated VideoCore® IV embedded processor
1080p 30 fps video encode and decode
3D Graphics: OpenGL® ES 1.1/2.0 support
TeakLite-III® DSP at 400 MHz
Low-power 40 nm process
1GB RAM (of course)
Based on this SOC:

Maybe in a few years!
In the meantime they will certainly keep to this SoC, and also use a similarly limited ball grid array out-route scheme for the PCB, which limits the possibilities for change, to perhaps a few problem fixes, and such.
