Not quite on the mark but:  Raspberry Pis are based on an ARM.  It turns
out that the ARM is a small part of the silicon, and the rest is a high
powered graphic processor, with something like o(10) of the silicon.
The manufacturer of the chip (Broadcom?) intended the chip to be SoC for
media players, so it was a licensed/prop/undoc'd API situation.  ARM
thrown in for fun.  With some badgering over a fairly long period by Mr
Raspberry, Broadcom have now released the specs for the graphics side.

So, for fun and games at a cheap price, you now get a big fat GPU on the
side of your tiny generic ARM.  The fun to bux ratio is very high.


ps; scuze details, I'm not a rPi guy, just passing on the chinese whispers.
