Tux Machines (TM)-specific
As guys from Texas Instruments promised there is new Beaglebone Black on a market. Faster, cheaper, with video output and other extras. For me it looks like Raspberry/Pi killer done right.
What is on board?
There is a lot of goods:
1GHz TI AM355x cpu with ARM Cortex-A8 core supporting ARMv7-a instruction set
PowerVR GPU with OpenGL ES support (closed source driver)
HDMI output (with audio)
92 expansion pins
user controlled LEDs
serial port header
