    It may be that modifications are made to the image when displaying it, so the extra bits give more dynamic range for those modifications to look good, even with a 24 bit source image (on a 30/36 bit...
  2. 10-bit or 12-bit per colour component maybe?

    There's also the ODROID-U3 community edition, which is pretty cheap.

    I'm looking at a device to use as a low-power always-on home webserver thingy that I stick next to the router at home. The...

    The form factor is great, and the performance is okay.

    Might be good for people who want a home server that's always on (the low power aspect) with more RAM than a Raspberry Pi, with a reasonable...

    As long as I can turn off the graphical effects that slow down the user experience (the "start" menu seemed to have a lot of these for switching between tabs, changing selection, etc) then this is...

    Yeah, sure, but it's $199. Of course to use it effectively within Linux you probably need to spend that $99 on a 128GB SSD.

    Shame that there are no AMD Kabini versions, but maybe AMD needs to do...

    Yeah, such a feature requires plenty of warnings, and possibly a "safe resize (slow)" option that will migrate all data that would be affected to a better place on the partition (i.e., a...

    Because.

    This EOMA68 form factor is interesting form factor (and the A20 SoC is given as an example of a SoC that provides all the necessary interfaces -...

    I seriously hope that this release fixes some of the performance issues in previous versions.

    I was expecting Kaveri (quad-core Steamroller, but at around 3.5GHz), with a discrete GPU (the APU's GPU being available for physics, 3D audio, etc, still). Possibly coming with 4GB DDR3 (DIMM slot)...

    It would be interesting to see AMD Richland compared as well, to get a comparison against the integrated graphics of Intel's competitor.

    Also, OpenCL.

    Very interesting benchmarks so far - look forward to seeing more, and more varied ones too.

    It would be interesting to see comparisons to a Bobcat core - an E-450 or similar, as well as a similar...

    This looks like an interesting chip - although the 32-bitness isn' ideal.

    I expect a future ARMv8 variant of this device built on a 20nm node will be very competitive.

    But yeah, it would be...

    Because they sold what they had for the mobile market to Qualcomm a few years back, and that's now the Adreno (anagram of Radeon).

    Very true - I think it will put some pressure onto ARM graphics vendors to provide open source drivers.

    Imagine if the next generation Raspberry Pi was Intel Atom based because of this graphics...

    The idea was to compare the two architectures clock-for-clock.

    You can also get 1.7GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex A9 chips.

    So a dual-thread A9 compares very favourably to a dual-thread Atom at the...

    It was always in my mind that it was the compilers that were holding back ARM when compared to the Intel Atom, rather than the architecture, and this article does a lot to confirm it - although I'm...
