    The GPU isn't that bad... its the arm11 core that is old as dirt.

    Isn't this just a dead GPU that had already been end of lifed? I think that describes the rpi SOC in general, even when the rpi was released.

    Last week we talked about Broadcom finally open-sourcing their VideoCore IV 3D Graphics Stack and it is indeed the real McCoy, but the $10,000 Quake III bounty has yet to be claimed for getting it to work on the Raspberry Pi...

    More frendly than AMD.... really? I think they have potential but such declarations are premature... AMD has released documents and hired Mesa3d developers for multiple generations of GPUs already. I also found this... http://www.broadcom.com/docs/support...IV-AG100-R.pdf which looks like acutal documentation of the general architecture... pretty interesting although I don't know what percentage of the device it acutally covers. I doubt it covers setting up the chip and such... even so.
