AW: New Arndale board announced

The mounted Exynos 5 5420 contains a Mali™-T628 MP6 but the graphic core type varies between versions of the chip. An overview you can find under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exynos#List_of_Exynos_SoCs

The opensource lima driver is far from even thinking to support the Mali-600 series. This is one point that make me realy sad. Linux on embedded plattforms could be so great, but the most projects can't be done without graphic drivers. So you have usualy two options, use android or the wi***** crap. I closely follow the Sailfish OS development, hope that the libhybris/wayland stack get better and easier to use.
