this is a lot to ask of low-power low-cost SoCs! bottom line, there's no way it can be done - not in a single processor, that is. the closest possible candidate is one of marvell's high-end "server-style" SoCs. i know that there's one that has dual GbE, and it might even have one SATA. it definitely has PCIe - most of marvell's high-end server-style SoCs do. the problem is, though, that marvell's core (Kirkwood) is basically a from-the-ground-up redesign (reimplementation) of the older arm instruction set. it was originally *intel's* PXA design, and they were in turn were the original "DEC StrongARM" team, bought wholesale from DEC. superscalar ARM architecture was actually therefore first.... from Intel, not ARM! but, marvell's SoCs are now quite dated. none of them have USB3 for example. but, what really kills them off as an option is the pathologically insane nature of the marvell sales team. you'd think they'd want to sell SoCs. can you get them to give you one, even if you offer them cold hard cash? not a chance! this makes it very difficult to actually develop products based around marvell SoCs

all it needs now is for limadriver to reach its first milestone with even a partially accelerated opengl library and the allwinner A20 will be the world's first truly mass-volume SoC that's FSF-Endorseable.

What happened to the qimod website?
www.qimod.com works, plain qimod.com does not. Also the "Empowering" text has a pretty afwul font.
