    The BeagleBone Black launched in Q2'2013 with the AM335x. This AM335x ARM SoC runs at a mere 1GHz and is only a single core solution. Other specs on this single-core ARM development board is 512MB of DDR3 RAM, 2GB of eMMC on-board flash storage, a 3D graphics accelerator, and two PRU 32-bit micro-controllers. This is far from being the fastest ARM development board around. The specs on the BeagleBone Black are just a minor step ahead of the Raspberry Pi with its ARM1176JZF-S that has a 700MHz single-core ARMv6k processor while also boasting just 512MB of system memory but with not nearly the same level of hobbyist interest level even though the BeagleBone Black just sells for a few dollars more.
    Phoronix should do an apologetic article, maybe testing out the newer Debian Jessy 8.9 and Fedora 23 armhf, those are complete distros with Hard Float ARMv7, and doing some clearing of things commented on this forum.

    I strongly dissagree about "Raspberry Pi with its ARM1176JZF-S" beign close to Sitara ARMv7 @ 1GHz, BBB has a HARD FLOAT and NEON !!!
