BeagleBoard isn’t letting the Raspberry Pi steal all the glory in the battle for low-cost computing supremacy.

The vid stutters a bit during playback but, overall, it’s a respectable performance considering this is a CPU that would get laughed out of most modern smartphones. Head on after the break to see it in action.
