Comment about the RPI GPU in com news for November
Just listened to the com news for November. I don't know what's been worse this month, 5150's snoring or ken Fallon's singing :)
About the GPU on the RPI; it's actually a pretty powerful little device. I think the GPU is every bit as powerful as the actual CPU. It supports hardware graphics acceleration as well as audio rendering and I have had CD quality audio playing at the same time as TTS through my OMX code and it never misses a beat. I can't speak for video though of course, but again I suspect it would manage pretty much anything any game can throw at it.
But then the last game I played was Duke Nukem 3D about fifteen years ago :)
It's also possible to split the RAM in different proprtions between the GPU and the CPU

Ken Starks' Indiegogo campaign
I forgot to send Ken the link that was mentioned on the Community News when we were talking about Ahuka's show hpr1639 last month. This was a recording of Ken Starks' talk at Ohio Linux Fest 2014. David Whitman also posted details of the campaign on the HPR mailing list on 2014-11-08.
