Raspberry Pi already runs Quake III

The Foundation Raspberry Pi It is carrying out a project to build a low-cost computer based on the ARM architecture oriented education in computer science and computer science. The Foundation has received mid-month the Alpha prototype for internal tests, el cual es un poco más grande y complejo (debido a la inclusión de circuitería para debug) de lo que será el sistema final, but essentially the device is equipped with

• 700 MHz ARM11 processor
• 128MB or 256MB SDRAM
• Compatible with OpenGL ES GPU 2.0
• Decoding 1080 p 30 fps H.264
• HDMI video
• USB 2.0
• Slot for SD/MMC/SDIO card
• Generic I/o port
• Optional, 2 USB ports and Ethernet card 10/100

Despite having not been designed as a platform for games, its developers are more than compliant with their performance in the area of graphics processing, While is the result of much effort so this is so. The demo of the platform running Quake III You can see on the page of the Foundation.

In addition the Foundation is conducting a contest to design the logo for the device. Looking for a simple design, without many gradients and colors to make it easy to print it on the plate or in integrated circuits. Those interested can also read the legal notice and the rest of the specifications of the logo in Raspberry Pi Logo Competition.
