      Schematic

      I don't suppose we're going to see a schamatic for this board, either? Or did they finally release one for the B+?

        So for these dimensions and price point, this is now definitely an interesting product. The RPi B model I felt was a little too big and too expensive for what it was.

          Still no native support for floats? When a piece of hw doesn't support floats you know it's weak as fuck.

            Yeah, reminds me of the 386 SX.

              Errr, who says it doesn't have hard float?

                It *HAS* hard float support, it always had.

                  In fact floating point support is a strong point of the Pi. ARM11 has a much beefier FPU than Cortex-A8.

                    Maybe the world's cheapest HTPC platform. Pretty awesome. Runs 1080p with Dolby/DTS 7.1 sounds and PGS subtitles without issues. Overclocks at least 300 MHz. The chinese htpc boxes at store are at least $50. Yes, they might contain builtin wifi, emmc and dual core, but you won't need them.
